WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama will make a statement On Tuesday morning on Tropical Storm Isaac, which is approaching hurricane strength as is heads toward the northern US Gulf Coast, the White House said.

Obama will speak at 10 a.m. EDT (1400 GMT), the administration said in statement.

The storm has almost developed into a hurricane, the US National Hurricane Center said earlier on Tuesday. Significant storm surge and flood threat from rainfall are expected.

Isaac is expected to make landfall in the New Orleans area seven years after it was devastated by Hurricane Katrina.
