UPDATE: Isaac downgraded to tropical storm status

NEW ORLEANS – Isaac's consistency continued as it moves slowly (5 mph) deeper inland in a northwestern direction.

But, another consistent factor since Isaac's second landfall at Port Fourchon is that it has been weakening and by the 2 p.m. advisory, Isaac had been downgraded to a tropical storm.

With sustained winds of 70 mph and a minimum pressure of 974 mb, Tropical Storm Isaac continues to pelt South Louisiana with rain and wind and will continue to do so through the day and night and into tomorrow.

Isaac is expected to continue its northwestern path and its slow progression as it makes its way through the state.

The good news for Acadiana is that the predicted tropical storm level weather for the area looks to be on tap as Acadiana continues to lie east of Isaac's center.

Southeastern Lousiana has not been as fortunate as high waters, some of which are reported to be worse than what the areas saw for Hurricane Katrina, down lines and trees and power outages have plagued the area since late last night.
