ROMULUS, Mich. (WWJ) – Tropical Storm Isaac is poised to give Tampa and the rest of the Gulf Coast a good drenching after lashing the Florida Keys and Miami. But will it leave air travelers at Metro Airport high and dry?

It appears that all the flights are on schedule at Metro Airport, but WWJ’s Mike Campbell says he’s being told by some longtime, regular business travelers that it may be they had enough advance warning that they rerouted the planes, so it looks like there are no cancellations.

Tropical Storm Isaac is expected to impact travel to, from, and through Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Florida, and the Gulf Coast (see below for affected airports).
