Tropical Storm Isaac Approaches Haiti,
The island of Hispaniola, home to Haiti and the Dominican Republic, is bracing for a potential hurricane with the approaching Tropical Storm Isaac. The storm is gathering strength as it barrels toward the two neighboring island countries. There are fears Isaac will trigger massive flooding and landslides in Haiti as in storms of years past. In the United States, officials in Florida have raised the possibility that Isaac may force the delay or cancellation of the Republican convention in Tampa next week.
