Bahamas and Florida brace for heavy rain as Hurricane Isaias barrels through the Atlantic

August 1, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

Isaias is expected to hit the eastern coast of Florida on Saturday.

The storm is expected to move near the east coast of the Florida peninsula Saturday afternoon through Sunday, the NHC said.

A hurricane warning is in effect for northwestern and central Bahamas as well as the Boca Raton to the Volusia/Brevard County line in Florida, as well as for the northwestern and central Bahamas, NHC said.

Isaias is expected to produce up to 8 inches of rain in the Bahamas and up to 6 inches in southern and east-central Florida along with the Carolinas into the mid-Atlantic states.

Those heavy rains could cause storm surge that could combine with the tide to "cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters moving inland from the shoreline," NHC said.

Testing sites would remain open in 11 counties, nearly all of which are on the west coast or the Panhandle, the Florida Division of Emergency Management said.
