It's one of three storms churning in the Atlantic Ocean, with Tropical Storm Florence heading toward the U.S. East Coast and Tropical Storm Helene heading toward some of the Cabo Verde islands.

The lasted reports indicate that Isaac was located 1,580 miles east of the Windward Islands, which include St. Lucia, Dominica, Martinique and Grenada. A westward motion with an increase in forward speed is expected during the next few days, the National Hurricane Center said.

Isaac had maximum sustained winds of 50 mph on Saturday.

The Curaçao Meteorological Department is keeping a close eye on this storm.
