Named Storm Isaac developed from a depression southwest of the Cape Verde Islands. This storm is tracking nearly due west and will be moving into an area of low wind shear and warm water, so additional development is probable. This storm system will continue west for several days and will be very close to the islands between Barbados and Antigua in the Eastern Caribbean roughly by Friday, September 14. We will monitor this situation and if Isaac crosses into the Caribbean, we will post accordingly.
We are also recommending that ALL persons living along the East Coast of the US monitor details on Named Storm Florence and be prepared.
