In an eerie similarity of severe weather events, according to hurricane tracking officials, Tropical Storm Isaac is following a similar path Hurricane Katrina took back in 2005.

Thousands in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama were being told early Monday to leave their Gulf Coast homes as governors in all three states declared a state of emergency over their entire states.

Officials urged residents in the projected path of Isaac to take precautions Monday as well as monitor weather warnings. They were also urged to be prepared for whatever destruction Isaac was capable of bringing.

In an effort of similar warnings to those in the path of Isaac, the National Hurricane Center issued a hurricane warning for the northern coast of the Gulf of Mexico that spanned from Morgan City, Louisiana, east to Destin, Florida, the said.

TS Isaac is expected to make landfall late Tuesday or Wednesday with Wednesday marking Katrina’s anniversary.

Isaac is slated to be categorized as a Category 2 hurricane with sustained winds of at least 96 mph.

Isaac was strengthening early Monday as it moved at 14 mph through the warm Gulf waters.

The eye of Isaac is being forecasted to pass well west of Tampa. New Orleans is expected to feel the wrath of Isaac.
