  • Next tropical storm won't be easy to pronounce: Isaias

    Next tropical storm won't be easy to pronounce: Isaias
    If another tropical storm forms in the Atlantic basin this season, it will be named Isaias. The proper pronunciation: ees-ah-EE-ahs. Trying saying that five times fast. I can see television weather forecasters stumbling all over this one. I'm having a...
