Tropical Storm Isaac, which passed between the Caribbean island nations of Dominica and Martinique late Wednesday and early Thursday, is now moving nearly due west across the eastern Caribbean Sea.

"My staff and I will continue to monitor Tropical Storm Isaac", said VITEMA Director Mona L. Barnes.

"Some strengthening is possible during the next 12 to 24 hours, but gradual weakening should begin thereafter", the hurricane center said. Wind gusts in the area may have been considerably higher.

Mariachi wearing gunman kill 5, wound 8 in Mexico City
Mexico City has experienced less of the drug violence that plagues cartel strongholds in other regions of the country. At least five people have been killed after gunmen dressed as a mariachi band opened fire in a Mexico City plaza.

Tropical Storm Isaac had maximum sustained winds of 70 miles per hour Tuesday morning, which made it a tropical storm instead of a Category 1 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson scale. A watch is typically issued 48 hours before tropical-storm-force winds are expected to arrive, which makes outside preparations hard or unsafe - and Tropical-storm-force winds are possible within the tropical storm watch area today. A turn to the west-northwest is possible early next week if Isaac survives.

NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite passed over tropical cyclone Isaac in the eastern Caribbean Sea and it has weakened to a depression as a result of being hammered by vertical wind shear.

But in their 11 p.m. Wednesday advisory, the NHC forecasters hastened to add that Isaac still is expected to be producing tropical-storm-force winds when it moves across the Lesser Antilles on Thursday and passes by St. Croix early Friday.

"The threat of damaging winds, flooding rain, high surf, and storm surge still remains".

Swells along portions of the Azores, which will likely continue for a couple of days, could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions, the NHC said.
