The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service said Tropical Storm Isaac is moving away from Lesser Antilles and eastward into the Caribbean Sea.
The Met Office issued two "yellow" alerts on Friday as the storm began creeping towards south-western corners of the United Kingdom and the tip of Ireland. Sustained winds remained at 90 miles per hour, but the storm - which was never expected to threaten the US coast - should begin to weaken over the next day and become a tropical storm on Thursday, forecasters said in an 11 a.m. advisory.
Emma Smith, meteorologist with the Exeter-based Met Office, said more details would emerge within the next day over what impact the storm might have.

A Category 4 hurricane at its strongest, Olivia spent about a week swishing around in the Pacific Ocean without making landfall before it weakened into a tropical storm. Tropical-storm force winds extend outward to 105 miles from the center. The storm has nothing to weaken it in it's path until it reaches landfall.
Baker said the rain will bring damaging flash flooding to all areas of the Wilmington region, not just low-lying areas that are particularly vulnerable. "Persons located within these areas should take all necessary actions to protect life and property from rising water and the potential for other unsafe conditions", the hurricane center briefing said.More news: Tesla pulls 2 paint colors to 'simplify manufacturing'
