This photo, which appears to show Tropical Storm Isaac barreling toward the Gulf Coast, is making its rounds on Twitter.
Don’t be fooled.
According to the Bay News 9 the photo is a fake and has been used to illustrate many extreme weather events in the past.
From the station’s meteorologist Josh Linker:
“It is a Photoshopped picture of a supercell thunderstorm that seems to pop up with a new foreground every time there is a hurricane threat anywhere.”
