With maximum sustained winds approaching 125 mph (205 km/hr), Hurricane Isidore is just skirting the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. The eye is clearly visible in this image and has an approximate diameter of 20 nautical miles. Isidore is expected to continue on a westward path for the next 24 hours.
With sustained winds of 65 miles per hour and heavy rains, the remnant of Hurricane Isidore was already battering the coast of Louisiana on the evening of September 25, hours before the eye of the storm was expected to make landfall. As much as 20 inches of rain is expected in some areas.
