Visit Pensacola incorrectly reports conditions..oops

August 29, 2012

Visit Pensacola is reporting:

As of 7 a.m. CST, the Pensacola Bay Area is no longer under a Tropical Storm Warning, as wind and rain continue to subside. No major storm damage has been reported in Escambia County, which includes Pensacola, Pensacola Beach and Perdido Key. At this time, our thoughts are with our neighbors to the west, as Hurricane Isaac nears the Louisiana Coast.

Unfortunately, that is not the case. NOAA reports in its 7 a.m. update:

SUMMARY OF WATCHES AND WARNINGS IN EFFECT…

A HURRICANE WARNING IS IN EFFECT FOR…
* EAST OF MORGAN CITY LOUISIANA TO THE MISSISSIPPI-ALABAMA BORDER… INCLUDING METROPOLITAN NEW ORLEANS…LAKE PONTCHARTRAIN…AND LAKE MAUREPAS

A HURRICANE WATCH IS IN EFFECT FOR…
* INTRACOASTAL CITY TO MORGAN CITY LOUISIANA

A TROPICAL STORM WARNING IS IN EFFECT FOR…
* THE MISSISSIPPI-ALABAMA BORDER TO DESTIN FLORIDA

* MORGAN CITY TO SABINE PASS TEXAS

A TROPICAL STORM WATCH IS IN EFFECT FOR…
* EAST OF HIGH ISLAND TEXAS TO JUST WEST OF SABINE PASS

I know they want to save the Labor Day tourism weekend, but NOAA still has us under a TS warning, so does Escambia County (from that last update):

Escambia County is currently under the following watches or warnings: Tropical Storm Warning, Flood Warning and Flash Flood Watch.
