Alabama schools reopening

Life is returning to normal on Alabama's coast after a brush with Hurricane Isaac, but not completely.

Schools in Mobile and Baldwin counties resume class Thursday after a three-day break for the storm, and seas are expected to continue falling as remnants of Isaac slowly move off the coast.

But forecasters say southwest Alabama could receive several more inches of rain before the tropical precipitation bands end. And storms could continue inland like the cells that prompted tornado warnings on Wednesday.
