Hurricane Isaac Update

August 29th, 2012 at 12:40 am by under FOX10 Stormtracker Weather

The center Hurricane Isaac is moving very slowly over the s’east Louisiana coast. The National Hurricane Center says the system is moving west-northwest at 7 mph. The motion has pulled the center slightly further away from our area. Our primary threat will continue to be isolated tornadoes, heavy rain, and above normal tides. A tornado watch is in effect for the entire area until 7am this morning. As of 12:30 am we are still seeing very heavy rain bands over the western third of our forecast area: Jackson, George, Greene, Mobile, Washington, and Baldwin counties. Tides are still running 3-4 feet above normal in Mobile Bay, with a¬†peak tide of 6 feet expected at high tide. We will see the highest coastal flooding values around 10am. We have seen nearly four inches of rain so far at Mobile Regional Airport and at Brookley Field. The center of Isaac will slowly weaken and pull away from our area by the late¬†afternoon. We may continue to see gusty winds, heavy rain bands, and higher tides through the evening.

    Why is channel 10 or none of the other news channels not videoing down in Bayou La Batre??? Several businesses are flooding right now and there’s no reports on the news at all about the Bayou.

    just like they did after katrina….
