Alabama's Gulf Coast Slowly Coming Back After Isaac

Southeast Alabama is slowly beginning to dry out after Isaac. Shops and stores along the Alabama gulf coast are re-opening for business. Alabama Power reported restoring power to most of Dauphin Island shortly before 5PM Wednesday. Isaac has been downgraded to a Tropical Storm, but has stalled over southeastern Louisiana dumping many inches of rain on the Gulf Coast.That means Alabama's Gulf Coast isn't quite out of the woods yet. The forecast calls for more rain in the Mobile area between now and Friday, and a bit drier over the weekend. Also a tornado watch has been put into effect for Baldwin, Mobile, and Washington Counties until midnight tonight.
