Georgia Dodges Isaac…For Now
ATLANTA (AP) — With Tropical Storm Isaac bearing down on Florida, Georgia Power is sending some crews to help with any outages caused by the storm.
Spokesman John Kraft tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution says the crews left Sunday morning. He says the utility company sent fewer crews than it normally would just in case the storm turns back toward Georgia.
National Weather Service meteorologist Dan Darbe says the storm’s path is wide and unpredictable. Even though Isaac looks like it’s headed west, Georgia could still see some effects from the storm.
Darbe says the official forecast has it going into southern Mississippi as a Category 2 hurricane Wednesday morning. He says that track is similar to Katrina’s path in 2005, which contributed to 16 tornadoes across Georgia.
