ropical Storm Isaac may well become a full-blown hurricane on Tuesday. Overnight, the storm barreled over the Gulf of Mexico toward New Orleans, and clocked sustained winds of 70 mph. Meteorologists predict the storm will turn into a hurricane later in the day, and be at least a Category 1 hurricane by the time it hits the southeast coast of Louisiana on Wednesday. That would be seven years to the day since deadly Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans. This time, however, the storm is nowhere near as strong. Katrina at one point reached a Category 5 status with winds blowing roughly 160 mph.
