Tropical Storm Isaac Eyes Fla.

Forecasters say that Tropical Storm Isaac, which is currently approaching the Caribbean, could pose a threat to Florida and potentially next week’s GOP convention in Tampa. The storm’s maximum sustained winds were at 45mph on Wednesday, but it is expected to gain strength and become a hurricane by Thursday. Some of the National Hurricane Center’s models showed the storm striking Florida and the Tampa Bay area, but it is too early to know for sure if it will. A spokesman for Weatherunderground.com said, “It would take a perfect storm of a scenario where a bunch of factors all conspire together. But we definitely have to watch this one.”
