High tide and rising waves forced the closing of Buccanneer State Park and Beach Boulevard in Waveland, Miss., as Isaac's winds and rain hit the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Tuesday, Aug. 28, 2012. The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said Isaac became a Category 1 hurricane Tuesday with winds of 75 mph. It could get stronger by the time it's expected to reach the swampy coast of southeast Louisiana. (AP Photo/Rogelio V. Solis) less
