Hurricane Isaac Battering Gulf Coast

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

Isaac Makes Second Landfall

Isaac begins to move inland in southeast Louisiana, top winds still at 80 mph. Concerns about the wind have given way to fears that the sloppy, slow-moving hurricane could camp out over Gulf Coast communities for a couple of days and dump up to 20 inches of rain.  We'll track it for you on Sunrise.

Hot and Dry, for now

High pressure over the area will provide sunny and warm afternoons along with comfortable nights through early Friday.  The remnants of Isaac will have a good chance to bring us needed rainfall late Friday through Saturday.

Republican Convention

The Republican National Convention continues today after delegates officially nominate Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.  Last night New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Ann Romney addressed the crowd in Tampa.

West Nile

Mosquitoes carrying the West Nile Virus have been found in at least 67 Hoosier counties this year, compared to just 34 last year.  The Vanderburgh County Health Department is spraying again today for mosquitoes. Emily is live with details.

Fraud Seminar

Helping to stop business fraud before it happens is the goal of a seminar being held later this morning. Western Kentucky Reporter Alyssa Hansen makes her Sunrise debut live with the details.

So enjoy your day, and we'll see you on Sunrise.
