Tropical Storm Isaac, 5 p.m. update

Live Oak — Tropical Storm Isaac has strengthened a little more since this morning with maximum sustained winds of 65 mph.

A tropical storm watch is now in effect for the Florida Keys, the Florida east coast, south of Jupiter inlet; the Florida west coast, south of Bonita Beach and Florida Bay and Lake Okeechobee.

The center of Isaac was expected to make landfall around Alabama and the Florida panhandle as a hurricane. However, the storm's forecast now shows it moving slightly to the east, which could impact more of Florida. Isaac is moving toward the northeast near 16 mph and this motion is expected to continue for the next couple of days. The center of Isaac should make landfall in Haiti this evening, and approach the Florida Keys on Saturday.
