Hurricane Isaac Strengthens Noticeably At Landfall. Risk to New Orleans Increasing.
Posted by Dan Satterfield
Winds are gusting to over 100 mph just offshore now and winds are already gusting to near 80 mph around the New Orleans area tonight. The radar data shows a shrinking eye wall and that also indicates the Isaac has gotten stronger. The track now seems likely to put New Orleans in the wettest and windiest part of the storm. The storm surge and the rainfall remain the biggest worries.
If you are in New Orleans or nearby, it will be getting far worse….
Cat one, or two?
