Tampa Mayor: “Absolutely Prepared To Call Off” RNC

Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn has warned that the Republican National Convention could be canceled if Tropical Storm Isaac heads for the city. The mayor said that he is more concerned about the safety of the people than holding the convention.

“Absolutely we’re prepared to call it off,” Buckhorn said. “I mean, human safety and human life trumps politics. I think the RNC recognizes that.”

He also explained that the city has made contingency plans though he doesn’t expect to have to use them during the convention. “But we are prepared in the event that it is,” he said.

Isaac could threaten Florida as early as next week.

On Wednesday, leaders across much of the Caribbean closed schools and government offices and urged people to stay at home as Isaac swept toward the region, threatening to soon become a hurricane and perhaps eventually to menace Florida.

The storm was 140 miles east of the French Caribbean island of Guadeloupe late Wednesday morning, with maximum sustained winds of 45 mph. Isaac was moving west at 21 mph and was expected to become a hurricane by Thursday, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center

Time will tell how serious things get. As the days pass things will become more evident about the storm’s approach and the potential danger for the citizens and visitors to the Tampa area.
