A Gulf Coast region already saturated by heavy rains this summer is gearing up for even more wild weather as Tropical Storm Isaac nears the Louisiana coastline.

Isaac is forecast to become a hurricane soon, according to the National Hurricane Center, as of 7pm CDT on Monday.

CBS reported Monday afternoon that Tropical Storm Isaac's top sustained winds had reached 70 mph, up from about 65 mph the evening before. A tropical system becomes a Category 1 hurricane once winds reach 74 mph.

With the seventh anniversary of the Hurrican Katrina disaster looming, officials are taking no chances this time around. According to ABC News, President Obama informed Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal by phone Monday that he had declared a state of emergency in the state, making federal funding available for emergency activities. Obama also spoke with the governors of Alabama and Mississippi, as well as the mayor of New Orleans.

Isaac would be the first hurricane to hit the Gulf Coast since 2008.
