Tropical Storm Isaac made landfall in Haiti, barreling Port-Au-Prince as it almost gained hurricane status early Saturday morning. Isaac is forcasted to strenghten into a category 1 hurricane before it hits the Gulf Coast sometime between Monday Evening and Tuesday. Warnings have been issued for much of the gulf coast and Florida panhandle, with  all other warnings and watches issued for Florida being discontinued.

On Saturday, Florida Governor Rick Scott placed the entire state of Florida under a State of Emergency ahead of the storm. Residents in the Keys were asked to evacuate as well as citizens that reside in low lying areas in Southern Florida. Port of Miami is scheduled to close at 7PM on Saturday night, as well as Key West International Airport- several flights from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and Miami International Airport have also been canceled as of midday Saturday. More closures to come soon.

Tropical Storm Isaac has already claimed the lives of at least four people in Haiti as well as one in the Dominican Republic. The Republican National Convention has not been cancelled but activities have been postponed until Tuesday afternoon. Florida Governor Rick Scott has already cancelled all of his activities in   the convention center, as well as the Governors of both Louisiana, and Mississippi.

State of Emergencies have been issued in Louisiana,  Mississippi, Alabama and the Florida panhandle as of Sunday evening. Mandatory evacuations have been ordered for Louisiana, Alabama, and the Florida panhandle- and voluntary evacuations have been issued for Mississippi.

Hurricane Isaac made landfall at the mouth of the Mississippi River at 6:45 PM on August 28th, 2012. It was a category 1 hurricane at impact with wind speeds of 80 MPH +, multiple impacts may be expected. Isaac made a second landfall in Port of Fourchon and 2:15 CDT on August 29th, 2012- 7 years exactly from Hurricane Katrina's impact with Louisiana.
