Tropical storm Isaac, soon to be Hurricane Isaac, will likely miss the west cost of Florida, but it will create strong waves and surges.  The Republican National Convention, which will be held in Tampa this year, has been delayed, and people are keeping their fingers crossed that Tampa won’t experience significant flooding.
