Rangers manager Ron Washington said his home in New Orleans will host about 10 family members as Isaac approaches Tuesday, but that he has no plans to return home after the storm.
Washington’s original home in New Orleans was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, back when he was a coach for Oakland. Aided by donations from former A’s players, including Miguel Tejada and Jason Giambi, he finished rebuilding it in 2010.
Isaac is expected to hit in the vicinity of New Orleans late Tuesday night as a category 1 or 2 hurricane.
“This is not Katrina,” he said Monday. “There was only one Katrina.”
