Isaac Now Officially Category 1 Hurricane


Isaac has turned from a tropical storm into a Category 1 hurricane with 75 mph winds, the AP reports:

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Tuesday that Isaac gained strength as it moved over the warm, open waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Isaac is expected to make landfall over southeastern Louisiana, possibly the New Orleans area, either late Tuesday or early Wednesday.
