Tampa, Florida -- City officials will address the media each day this week to talk about what has happened the day or night before regarding the Republican National Convention. Sunday, the big topic was Tropical Storm Isaac.
Mayor Bob Buckhorn and Chief Jane Castor held the first of their daily briefings for the rest of week. Mayor Buckhorn says everything is going smoothly and the city is ready for whatever Tropical Storm Isaac brings to town.
"The city is prepared. We are going through our normal preparations that we would go through for any storm of this size."
While the Mayor does not anticipate a storm surge, he says The Convention Center is in Flood Level A and the Forum is in Flood Level B.
"We don't think that there's going to be an issue at all but if so we are prepared to deal with it."
Chief Castor says there were some demonstrations in Ybor City Saturday night and says she expects protests to take place tomorrow. Police are warning organizers about weather conditions.
"The high winds and not necessarily the sustained winds, but the gusts they may not be used to and the tropical storms are relatively predictable, tornadoes are not."
Chief Castor says she does not anticipate weather being at any level where they would have to cancel any permits or parades, and Mayor Buckhorn says he does not anticipate that the convention will be postponed on Tuesday.
