Island Warnings Canceled as Storm Loses Its Punch

Associated Press

Tropical Storm Isaac lost some punch Saturday and was downgraded to a depression, then a tropical wave, prompting the cancellation of storm warnings for six Caribbean islands, weather officials said.

The storm had strengthened enough to be classified a storm on Friday in the tropical Atlantic, but strong winds in the upper atmosphere sapped its strength. Its top maximum winds were 35 m.p.h., below the 39 m.p.h. threshold for tropical storms.
