This NOAA satellite image taken Saturday, Aug. 25, 2012 at 1:45 a.m. EDT shows a mass of clouds in the Caribbean Sea associated with Tropical Storm Isaac as it pounds Hispaniola with heavy rain and strong wind. Isaac will continue on its path toward western Cuba and southern Florida through the weekend, possibly gaining hurricane strength. For more information, please see http://www.wunderground.com/tropical/. Clouds in the Plains are associated with a front that is producing a few areas of rain and thunderstorms in the area.
