      Emergency Management has joined forces with the National Weather Service to closely monitor Tropical Storm Isaac.

      On Saturday, officials predicted Albany was in a direct strike zone for the storm but by Sunday things looked a bit better for Southwest Georgia.

      "Today's models are more in agreement with the National Weather Service and they're looking more of a western Alabama eastern Mississippi landfall strike at this time," said Emergency Management Deputy Director Jim Vaught.

      Vaught says this does not mean we're in the clear - Albany is still expected to get 7 to 9 inches of rain and experience winds up to 35 miles per hour.
