A hurricane warning has been issued for a portion of the upper South Carolina and lower North Carolina coasts since Isaias is forecast to make landfall as a Category 1 hurricane tonight. The hurricane warning includes Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and Wilmington, North Carolina.

UPDATE: July 31, 2020

Tropical Storm Isaias was upgraded to a Category 1 hurricane, shortly after pulling away from Hispaniola. The storm is expected to make landfall along the Eastern seaboard of the United States this weekend to early next week.

UPDATE: July 20, 2020

Tropical Storm Isaias is bringing bands of heavy rain to Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, with winds in those rainbands gusting at 50 mph or higher at times.

The heavy rain has triggered serious flash flooding in several areas of Puerto Rico. Multiple fallen trees, mudslides and flooding was reported in southwest Puerto Rico, according to local emergency management. River flooding has been recorded by USGS gauges in several locations in Puerto Rico.
