Meanwhile, Isaac continues his agonizingly slow crawl to the north and west through southern Louisiana. In the past 14 hours Isaac has moved only about 75 miles. As of 10:00 CDT this morning Isaac was still a minimal hurricane with gust over 80 mph measured in some areas. Isaac is pretty impressive on radar and exhibits a distinct but somewhat ragged eye. Radar estimated rainfall is almost 12 inches east of the storm center as of noon CDT. With Isaac moving only at about 5 mph, much more rain can be expected the rest of today.
