Tropical Storm Isaac is forecast to become Hurricane Issac later this week as it moves to the west-northwest.
It will be bringing torrential downpours and very strong winds along with it.
That could spell serious trouble for Haiti, where many residents are still living in tents after that devastating earthquake a few years back.
The “worst case scenario” for Tampa, according to Accuweather.com, would be if Tropical Storm Isaac/Hurricane Isaac were to swing over the Gulf of Mexico, strengthen, then curve northeastward toward the city on the Florida west coast.
This could be a whopper of a storm.
