According to the satellite operator, the Tropical Storm Isaac Information channel will air on Chs. 325 and 349 and provide news broadcasts from local stations in affected areas.
At presstime Sunday night, the storm appeared to be heading for a date with the Gulf Coast rather than Tampa, where it had threatened the Republican convention starting Monday .
DirecTV will be simulcasting local news and storm coverage from almost a dozen stations in Florida, Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi. It will also include graphics from the American Red Cross.
