Isaac weakens slightly as it comes ashore, but B.R. still bracing for brunt
As of 10 a.m., the eye of Hurricane Isaac hovered around Houma as the Category 1 storm moved north-northwest at a snail's pace, soaking south Louisiana with rain as it inched toward Baton Rouge at 6 mph. Maximum sustained winds are still around 75 mph, and the National Weather Service says they're extending about 45 miles outward of Isaac's eye. The most recent forecast is still calling for the hurricane to dump anywhere from 7 to 20 inches of rain. By all appearances, Baton Rouge will begin seeing the worst of Isaac beginning this afternoon, with strong winds and heavy rains expected to last throughout tonight. East Baton Rouge Parish is currently under a tropical storm warning, a tornado watch and a flash flood warning. You can check out the latest update from the National Weather Service on Isaac here. Daily Report is continually updating a list of Isaac-related cancellations and closures, as well as providing emergency contact information.
