Isaias threatens east coast
NAD sues White House
Turn Off Light
Yesterday (Monday) night Isaias became a Category 1 hurricane before it slammed into the Carolinas.
It’s been downgraded to a tropical storm since then but now it’s threatening the East Coast with tornadoes, strong winds and flooding.
Last night officials in North Carolina said there were multiple reports of structure fires and water rescues.
There have been reports of people trapped in their homes.
Rain, flooding, storm surge, strong wind gusts and isolated tornadoes are still a threat for the area.
Now parts of the mid-Atlantic and the Northeast are preparing for Isaias.
Tuesday Isaias is expected to gradually weaken as it brings strong winds along the East Coast, including Washington DC, Philadelphia and New York.
But it could still be the strongest winds to hit the New York City area since Superstorm Sandy in 2012, according to the head of the National Weather Service.
