Isaac aftermath in Guadeloupe by Philip Delos:

Tropical Storm Isaac has crossed the Guadeloupean archipelago late yesterday and is now moving on the Caribbean Sea.
Actually, it was a strange and unusual storm because despite the big size of the phenomenon we had just a few rain and almost no wind in Guadeloupe... the French local authorities had sparked a red alert and even ask the residents of seashore to evacuate their homes for joining secure shelters.
Happily there was absolutely no damage. Just a few rain precipitations and almost no severe winds. Some rare gusts must have reached 70 km/h (43 mph).
The sea is still strong with some hollows up to 3 meters but we have absolutely no rain even if the cloud cover is total.
As a precaution, the local authorities still maintain the orange alert.
The most important news is that we had no damage at all.
