Thousands of troops who were evacuated to Georgia because of Hurricane Isaac are returning to their normal posts. Those troops had been evacuated northward as Hurricane Isaac approached the shoreline of the Gulf of Mexico.
Forecasters say Tropical Storm Isaac will bring the threat of flooding and tornadoes to the southwest corner of Georgia. The National Weather Service in Tallahassee said 5 to 7 inches of rain is possible in parts of southwest Georgia.
National Weather Service meteorologist Dan Darbe said Tropical Storm Issac’s path is wide and unpredictable. Even though Isaac looks like it's headed west, Georgia could still see some effects from the storm.
