Isaias heads to Florida coast as state battles coronavirus outbreak


Florida, which continues to grapple with a wave of coronavirus, is now bracing for Tropical Storm Isaias – complicating efforts to contain the virus. The entire east coast of Florida is bracing for potential impacts: from high winds to high rains and storm surges, reports Manuel Bojorquez of CBS News.Isaias was demoted Saturday night to a tropical storm as he moved within 115 miles of Fort Lauderdale with maximum sustained winds of 70 mph. The storm is expected to turn into a hurricane overnight as it approaches Florida’s southeast coast, according to the National Hurricane Center.

“On the planned track, the center of Isaias will move over the Straits of Florida tonight, and approach the southeast coast of Florida early Sunday morning,” said the National Hurricane Center. “Isaias would then have to travel near or along the… east coast of the Florida peninsula on Sunday and Sunday evening.” “
