Bahamas, Florida brace for newly formed Hurricane Isaias

IsaiasTrack Hurricane Isaias threatens Caribbean lands as Florida braces for impacts

"Hurricane Isaias is a serious storm, and current predictions indicate that it may impact parts of Virginia as early as this weekend", Governor Northam said.

Isaias knocked out power and caused flooding and small landslides across Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic on Thursday and now has strengthened into a hurricane as it begins moving into the Bahamas while heading for the U.S. East Coast.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles (55 km) from the center of the tropical cyclone and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 175 miles (280 km).

Accuweather Senior Meteorologist Dave Houk said he believes that as the storm moves north that it will weaken in intensity, and reach the northeast Monday night into Tuesday morning.

One of the storm defying surfers thought the conditions "were not dangerous" but rather just flawless 'because the waves were too good'.

"Tropical storm conditions are expected in the warning area in Florida beginning Saturday". There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect. The system is moving northwest at 28 km/h and a northwestward motion with some drop in speed is expected over the next couple of days followed by a shift to the north-northwest.

A Storm Surge Watch is in effect from Jupiter Inlet to Ponte Vedre Beach as well, where the National Hurricane Center says 2 to 4 feet of inundation is possible.

"Our sites, because they're outdoors with tents, if it were to get 40-, 50-mile-per-hour winds, it would just collapse", he said.

The Hurricane Center said heavy rains associated with the storm "may begin to affect South and east-Central Florida beginning late Friday night, and the eastern Carolinas by early next week, potentially resulting in isolated flash and urban flooding, especially in low-lying and poorly drained areas".

"Unfortunately, Isaias appears to be taking a somewhat similar track along the USA east coastline, such as Matthew in 2016 and Dorian in 2019", Graves said.

Primary evacuation options should be with friends, family, or hotels or motels outside of Evacuation Zones A and B. If there is an evacuation order, the county will open a shelter at Rymfire Elementary School for people who aren't able to make other arrangements.

"If an individual has COVID symptoms, they will be redirected to a non-congregate sheltering option where they can more easily isolate", a statement from Cooper's office says.

Miami-Dade and Broward counties also closed drive-through and walk-up testing sites for COVID-19, limiting an important tool for health officials on a day when the state - at the epicenter of the country's outbreak for weeks - reported a record increase in COVID-19 deaths for a fourth day in a row. If the track moves farther east and out to sea, then our impacts will be far less.
