NEW YORK  -- Airlines are cancelling all New Orleans flights in anticipation of hurricane winds and rain from Isaac.

A brief news release from Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport said all airlines would stop flying at the end of Monday’s schedule, with no flights scheduled Tuesday.

The move comes after large cancellations in Southern Florida on Sunday due to Tropical Storm Isaac.

The storm is over the Gulf of Mexico. It is expected to grow into a Category 1 hurricane and hit land late Tuesday night. A Category 1 hurricane has winds ranging from 74 mph to 95 mph.
