Isaac Weakens To A Tropical Storm (With Local Photo Gallery)
August 29, 2012
Hurricane Isaac official made landfall at 6:45 Tuesday night along the southeast Louisiana coast. Once inland, the storm moved slowly along the coast, remaining a hurricane into Wednesday morning.
By 2 p.m. Wednesday, Isaac had weakened to tropical storm status.
In the North Escambia area, very few problems were reported. There were a few scattered power outages and a few downed trees. In the southern half of the county, tens of thousands of people lost power Tuesday, and there were more reports of downed trees. Isaac’s big punch to Escambia County came in the form of storm surge, flooding many coastal areas.
