Stick With The Weather Channel, Your Hurricane Isaac Authority

The Weather Channel Offers the Most Coverage of Isaac, Just Upgraded to Hurricane

The Weather Channel (TWC) continues its live, around-the-clock coverage of Hurricane Isaac. As Isaac makes its way to the Gulf Coast, it threatens to affect millions of people in Louisiana and Mississippi. The latest named hurricane is on track to hit New Orleans almost seven years to the day after Hurricane Katrina wreaked havoc on the city, affecting thousands of people in the area. The Weather Channel has stationed several on-camera meteorologists along the Gulf Coast, giving its viewers up-to-the-minute coverage as they prepare for Hurricane Isaac to make landfall:
