KINGSTON, Jamaica -The Government of Jamaica has lifted the Tropical Strom Watch associated with Tropical Storm Isaac.

 According to the US National Hurricane Centre, a Tropical Storm Watch is now issued for the east coast of Florida. A hurricane warning is also issued for the Florida Keys.

"We have no reason to maintain the watch given the current path of the storm," Ronald Jackson head of the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management (ODPEM) told the Jamaica Observer this morning.

Jackson however cautioned that there is still the possibility of showers across the island. "We are expecting rain but the watch can be lifted," he said.
