As of 4pm today, Hurricane Isaac has top winds of 80mph and is located about 40 miles off the extreme southeastern tip of Louisiana. Landfall could happen as early as this evening, but what does Isaac have in store for East Texas?
Late Tuesday or early Wednesday Isaac is expected to make landfall as a hurricane with winds up to 100mph. That's dangerous enough, but there's another major fear when it comes to this particular storm.
Even the experts at the National Hurricane Center are admitting that there is a lot of uncertainty when it comes to the forecast track of Tropical Storm Isaac. As of 1pm today, hurricane watches now extend from near Morgan City, Louisiana to about halfway through the Panhandle of Florida.
