Tropical Storm Isaac

Tropical Storm Isaac is seen in this NOAA satellite image taken at 7:45 EST (11:45 GMT) August 23, 2012. Isaac spun over the Caribbean Sea and could become a hurricane on Thursday as it moves on a track that would put it off the coast of Florida on Monday, the opening day of the Republican National Convention in Tampa.Handout/Reuters
