Isaac: Watches Issued for Gulf Coast

Tropical Storm Isaac has become better organized this morning and winds have increased to 65mph. It is on a path WNW at 20mph headed toward the Florida Keys.

Earlier this morning a Hurricane Watch was issued for parts of the Gulf Coast stretching from the mouth of the Mississippi River to Indian Pass, Florida. The forecast path has shifted slightly westward again putting the central Gulf Coast in the threat zone. Mobile and Pensacola are in the middle of the path, but the uncertainty going 3 days out could land Isaac anywhere from Louisiana to northwest Florida.

People living along the entire Gulf Coast are urged to be prepared and continue to monitor the progress of Isaac.
