As Tropical Storm Isaac progresses through the Atlantic Ocean and to the Gulf of Mexico (where it may possibly affect the Republican National Convention), The Weather Channel plans to cover the storm with on-camera meteorologists out in the field, including one reporting live from Cuba for the first time ever. Mike Seidel will be live from Varadero, Cuba, on Friday, Aug. 24, beginning at 4pm ET, helping give viewers an eyewitness account of the storm’s effects. Also reporting on TV will be Stephanie Abrams, who hosted an extended version of Wake Up With Al live from the Florida Keys this morning, and Jim Cantore will be in Florida, at a location to be determined. Naturally, these locations are fluid and may change quickly, depending upon Tropical Storm Isaac’s path.
Online at Hurricane Central, The Weather Channel also has several resources to follow the progress of the storm, including a Hurricane Tracker Map, a hosted live online chat Aug. 24 from noon-2pm ET and more. On Twitter, you can follow the latest Weather Channel updates on Isaac from @weatherchannel, using the hashtag #Isaac.
