Disaster Alert: Tropical Storm Isaac

Caribbean — Red Cross societies throughout the Caribbean are on high alert as tropical storm Isaac moves westward across the Caribbean Sea.  Currently just south of Puerto Rico, the storm is expected to increase to hurricane strength before making landfall over the island of Hispaniola – home to the Dominican Republic and Haiti – around Friday afternoon.

Disaster Emergency Response Teams have been placed on standby in Cuba, the Dominican Republic and Haiti, and the American Red Cross has prepositioned emergency relief supplies to reach 5,000 families in the region if needed.
