Although Isaac is now a tropical depression, it's still carrying torrential rain, as it heads for some areas that really need it.

FOX News Radio's Courtney Kealy reports:

Experts say that rains from Isaac will not alleviate the drought conditions, but could ease them. The National Weather Service predicting parts of Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio will see two to six inches of rain by Saturday morning.

Gene Martin, a corn farmer in Arkansas:

(Martin) "Two to four inches would be fine that would slow down harvest for awhile, but if you get two inches in an hour that's probably going to be something that most of them would prefer not to have."

The heavy rain could also raise low water levels in the Mississippi River.
