Disaster Alert: Tropical Storm Isaac

Caribbean — Tropical Storm Isaac is sustaining winds of over 40mph as it continues to move across the Caribbean Sea. Currently just south of the Dominican Republic, the storm is expected to make landfall over the island of Hispaniola – home to the Dominican Republic and Haiti – around Friday evening. Some islands, including St. Lucia and Trinidad and Tobago, reported high waves and minor flooding as the storm passed through earlier in the week. 

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.
