Tropical Storm Isaac was located 50 miles south of Monroe, Louisiana, or 165 miles northwest of New Orleans, Louisiana as of 9 AM MDT this morning. Isaac continues to slowly weaken as he heads north-northwestward at 9 mph. His winds are sustained at 40 mph with higher gusts, and the central pressure has risen up to 29.15 inches of mercury, or 987 millibars. 

Isaac will continue to weaken, and by tonight the storm should only be a depression. The storm is forecast to move over Louisiana today, into Arkansas tonight, and southern Missouri by Friday night.

Isaac has produced some very rainfall amounts across parts of Louisiana and Alabama.

Flooding and flash flooding continues this morning as a result of these heavy rains and storm surge. Some 700,000 residents have been left without power in the area.
