GOP eyes Isaac as Tropical Storm forms

Posted: Updated:

Along with nominating their candidates for president and vice president next week thousands of Republicans may also get a lesson on Hurricane Season thanks to a storm named Isaac.

Forecasters are now keeping an eye on the Tropical Storm that's churning in the Atlantic Ocean. Isaac is expected to strengthen into a Hurricane over the next few days and could pose a threat to Florida during next week's Republican National Convention in Tampa.

It's too soon to say what exact path the storm will take, but some computer models show it headed toward Cuba and then the Sunshine State. Others have it turning to the north moving near Puerto Rico and then into the open ocean.

While Republicans plan to gather in Tampa to nominate Mitt Romney for president and Paul Ryan for vice president, the GOP says they have contingency plans in case a storm heads their way.

Right now the storm has sustained winds near 40 mph and is about 500 miles east of Guadeloupe moving west near 17 mph.
