TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida's top emergency management official says that Tropical Storm Isaac is likely to impact the state in some way.
But state Emergency Management Director Bryan Koon said Wednesday that it's too early to tell exactly the intensity or the path the storm will take.
Koon added there is no reason that out-of-state visitors should cancel their plans to come to the Republican National Convention scheduled to start next week in Tampa.
Koon said that he has been in constant contact with RNC officials about the potential storm threat. He also said there may be no need for evacuation in downtown Tampa even if a Category 1 hurricane was approaching.
Much of the area around the convention site is low-lying and near the water.
