Isaac’s Slow Pace Makes Storm Especially Dangerous

Tropical Storm Isaac's plodding pace through the Gulf of Mexico means the slow moving storm could punish coastal areas with up to 36 hours of tropical winds and 10 to 16 inches of rain, Louisiana's Gov. Bobby Jindal warned today.

Isaac, which is packing winds of 65 mph, is expected to strengthen to a Category 1 hurricane with winds of at least 74 mph by the time it reaches land late Tuesday or early Wednesday.
