If you are along the gulf coast, you are certainly keeping an eye on Issac. Currently it is still a tropical storm, but it is expected to gain hurricane strength soon. It is currently off the western coast of Florida and is headed for the Louisiana Coast. I know people around that area are having nightmares that this thing is the second coming of Katrina. Right now it is impossible to know this storms impact on that area, but right now, I would expect at least category one winds and heavy rain. Right now, just hope that the storm heads to your East, because while that is the wetter portion of the storm, it will cut down on some of the storm surge. Right now though I would Advise that those around the Louisiana coast, ACT NOW and have your Evacuation Plans ready. I would not be surprised to see this storm as a category 2 hurricane by landfall. And even be a hurricane by Mid-Morning tomorrow. Weather Advance Will Keep you updated on Tropical Storm Issac. Stay tuned.
