Etheridge says they're are already getting calls from as far away as Alabama.
"We've had two or three calls from people being evacuated from their vacation that are headed back through," she explains.
Monticello has played host to evacuees before when Katrina and Gustav hit.
"As in the past we welcomed people fleeing from Louisiana," says Drew County Sheriff Mark Gober. He says his department will do the same this time if needed.
"Law enforcement will be able to help them and direct them in any way we can," he says.
Joe Burgess, who runs MonticelloLive.com, an online only daily newspaper, has been asked to create a site especially for Isaac.
"It's a good communications point whether it's at home or driving with an iPhone or iPad," Burgess says.
Folks in Monticello can find out how to help those passing through, and evacuees will be able to have information at their fingertips about roads to take, or communities that may be of help, or shelter for them," Burgess adds.
Pastor Zan Pierce of Immanuel Baptist Church says he's asking all pastors to prepare to feed those who may come to their town.
"If it does come to an occurrence and if we have Isaac we can service the people that have a need, the evacuees," says Pierce.
The fairgrounds will serve as a place to shower.
Sheriff Gober says either way Isaac decides to go, Monticello is ready.
"We have many facilities and organizations ready to help them," he says.
Have you started getting calls from hotels down that way, we ask Etheridge. "Not yet but probably by tomorrow we will," she says.
In the meantime, everyone at the Holiday Inn Express will keep a close eye on Isaac.
