Is Isaac going to force us to 'hunker down'?

As Isaac pounds the Louisiana coast, it appears the storm won't be as bad as we once suspected. However, it's still very much a threat to knock out power with dead trees hanging over power lines, ready to knock them out. Some areas of East Texas should get some heavy rain and Brad Hlozek at 5, 6 and 10 will bring you the latest forecasts. Now remember, if your power does go out tomorrow, you can still keep up with your KTRE weather through our free weather app. So go download it for your smartphone now.

In Lufkin, emergency officials have a stocked warehouse, hundreds of volunteers and five shelters at the ready in case the storm is bigger than forecasted. Alexis Spears shows you just how ready Lufkin is in her report at 6.
