Bahamas bracing for Hurricane Isaias

Bahamas, Florida brace for newly formed Hurricane Isaias

Extreme Weather 2020: Isaias Upgraded To Hurricane, Forecast To Travel Along US East Coast

Miami, Aug 1 (IANS) US President Donald Trump visited Florida as the Category 1 hurricane Isaias is approaching the state's southeast coast.

It is becoming increasingly likely that Isaías will produce hurricane conditions near and east of the I-95 corridor or East-Central Florida.

Forecasters from the National Hurricane Center have issued a hurricane warning for parts of Florida and hurricane watches for other sections of the Sunshine State, and said they expect Isaias to strengthen later Friday night and early Saturday - with sustained winds up to 85 miles per hour - as it pushes across the Bahamas. You can check for any further updates from the National Hurricane Center here, and read up on Walt Disney World's hurricane policy here. "Hurricane conditions and risky storm surges are expected in portions of the Bahamas today and Saturday, and hurricane warnings are in effect for these areas".

The storm has caused at least two deaths in the Dominican Republic and torn down trees, flooded streets and knocked out power for thousands of homes and businesses in Puerto Rico, according to media reports.

"The most important thing we want people to do now is remain vigilant", said Gov. Ron DeSantis.

The NHC is warning of a risky storm surge with water levels rising by as much as three to five feet above normal tide levels in areas of onshore winds in the Bahamas.

Another scenario, also measured at 35 percent, predicts Isaias turning out to sea before it hits the SC coast.

Dare County declared a state of emergency and called for a mandatory evacuation for Hatteras Island visitors starting at noon Saturday.

"With the right protection and sheltering, we can keep people safe from the storm while at the same time trying to avoid making the pandemic worse", Cooper said Friday afternoon.

Governor DeSantis told media that he had signed an executive order for a state of emergency for east coast counties stretching from Miami-Dade in the south, to Nassau in the north.

"The centre of COVID-19 now is in Grand Bahama", the island's minister, Sen.

The confluence of hurricane season with the spike in COVID-19 cases led the American Meteorological Society on Thursday to issue new guidance for hurricane preparedness.

Some forecasts said the storm could weaken before it hits Florida as a result of possible wind shear along the Bahamas.

Gimenez said that social-distancing measures prompted by COVID-19 mean each person needs to have 40 square feet and no more cafeteria-style dining will be allowed.

While mass evacuations would not likely be necessary, the shelters were ready, he said. But forecasters warn that South Carolina's coast could be hit directly and experience flooding.
