St. Louis In Hurricane Isaac’s Projected Path
ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) – Remnants of Hurricane Isaac could be in St. Louis as early as Thursday. The projected path of the storm swings up between Columbia and St. Louis from Arkansas.
Some worry that a deluge of rain preceded by a severe drought could lead to flash flooding. But, with the Midwest in need of more precipitation.
Some coastal communities in Florida have already evacuated. Isaac is expected to make landfall on Wednesday on the Alabama or Mississippi coast.
Wednesday also happens to be the 7th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. Areas of the Louisiana coast from Morgan City east are under a hurricane watch. The watch includes New Orleans. But, Isaac is predicted to be a much weaker storm. Meteorologists believe it should only be a category two by the time it reaches the gulf coast.
The storm has already postponed the beginning of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida.
