UPDATE: Just like its movement, Isaac's weakening slow

NEW ORLEANS - Louisiana continues to be pelted with rain and deal with wind and power outages Wednesday afternoon, Tropical Storm Isaac pushed farther ashore, slowly.

As the storm continued moving northwest at a speed of 5 mph, Isaac pushed forth stronger winds and rains and saw more and more people lose power.

The storm, located at 30.1N, 91.1W as of the 4 p.m. CDT advisory, showed continued signs of weakening by seeing its pressure continue to rise. The sustained winds of 70 mph, however, remained.

Isaac is projected to be in north Louisiana by Thursday afternoon.

Due to the inclement weather and power outages, a curfew has been placed on Acadia Parish from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.
