Weather Channel Goes To Cuba To Cover Isaac

The potential of a Hurricane Isaac hitting the U.S. (and maybe interrupting the RNC) means that The Weather Channel is back in its wheelhouse.

For the first time ever, Weather will be sending a reporter to Cuba to cover that country as Isaac hits. Mike Seidel is in the city of Varadero in the Caribbean nation, and will be reporting there starting this afternoon. Journalists for many TV news outlets have reported from Cuba before, but the complicated visa process makes it difficult to cover breaking news there.

Meanwhile, Jim Cantore is heading to Florida, for a location TBD, where he will report on Isaac.

Weather Channel routinely becomes a go-to network for viewers whenever there is bad weather, such as hurricanes or blizzards, and Isaac looks to be no exception.
