    Isaac could become hurricane that threatens Florida and Louisiana

    As Tropical Storm Isaac moved quickly through the Straits of Florida on Sunday, coastal communities in Florida issued mandatory evacuations and Republicans delayed the start of their national convention.
    By late Monday afternoon or early evening, Isaac's eye is expected to be west of Tampa, Florida. It is expected to make landfall again on Wednesday somewhere along the Mississippi coast. By Wednesday -- the seventh anniversary of Hurricane Katrina -- Isaac could be a Category 2 hurricane with winds of at least 96 mph. The hurricane center said areas of the Louisiana coast from Morgan City east are under a hurricane watch. The watch includes New Orleans.
    Officials in Plaquemines Parish declared a state of emergency and began preparing for the storm by bolstering levees and adding additional flood protection devices to low-lying highway areas.

    Stay safe, everyone.

    Yeah but this one is squirrelly. No telling where it's going to go. The current track shows it passing directly over me at about 1400 on Wednesday. We'll see. I just hope people remember Katrina and get out of the way.

    Apparently the Weather Channel made a flub and called Mississippi "The land mass between NOLA and Mobile". It has some Mississippi folks stirred up. There is even a FaceBook page that has 2997 likes and it's only 2 hours old.
