Will devote this hurricane season to provide up-to-the-minute, basic information when a tropical system is threatening land. Both basins included.

Tropical Storm Isaac is currently not doing very well intensification-wise but more steady strengthening is expected in the next day or two before it comes ashore and skirts Haiti as a minimal hurricane, brushes along the Cuban coastline then emerges into the Florida Straits and heads in the general direction of the Florida Keys/FL Gulf Coast. Now Haiti may be in for the worst of Isaac as it is prone to many major disasters and we could see some serious, destructive concern with flooding and mudslides there so let's hope for the best. But Cuba and especially the Florida Peninsula should keep a very close eye too as the Republican Convention is supposed to be held in Tampa when Isaac is forecast to pass by likely as a category one/two hurricane. So Hispaniola, Cuba, Florida Peninsula and possibly other areas in the future should be reviewing their preparations right now.
Tropical Depression Ten is out there but is not as much of an immediate threat as Isaac is. It should slowly strengthen into a tropical storm but not do much past that. It's no immediate threat to any land masses though Bermuda may wanna watch as they may be threatened about a week out but that's still many days away so we have a lot of time to watch TD-10 for trends and any future land threats.
