UPDATE: Noon advisory shows Isaac's movements at snail pace

NEW ORLEANS – All of Hurricane Isaac has yet to make landfall as the noon advisory but that doesn't mean Acadiana didn't receive good news.

Westward-moving projections continue to cease to exist and Isaac is set to continue moving northwest at 5 mph.

So while the storm is slow moving, it is moving and finally in the projected way.

As of noon, Isaac had not moved much and is not projected to move much more today, making its way more inland slowly. By 7 p.m. forecasters believe Hurricane Isaac will be downgraded into a tropical storm and be near Iberia and St. Martin parishes with sustained winds of 65 mph.

Within 12 hours, though, forecasters believe Isaac will really begin moving, with sustained winds down to 50 mph and the storm's center being toward the most northern part of the Acadiana area.
