Isaias nears Florida: Live updates

August 2, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

Isaias is expected to near the US and move up the Florida coast. Follow here for the latest.

Isaias' center is expected to move within miles of Florida's east coast today.

While it's not clear if the storm will make landfall in the US, the possibility can't be ruled out, CNN meteorologist Allison Chinchar said.

The storm's center could affect the Carolinas' coast by early Tuesday — and current forecasts show a landfall over the coastal Carolinas is possible.

The storm then could move along the coasts of the mid-Atlantic and Northeastern states from Tuesday into Wednesday.

Isaias is continuing toward Florida, and the storm comes at a sensitive time during the coronavirus pandemic.

On Friday, Florida marked the fourth consecutive day it reported a record number of Covid-19 deaths in the state at 257.

Florida closed some state-supported Covid-19 drive-through and walk-up testing sites on Thursday in anticipation of the storm.

Testing is shut down in Miami and will likely stay that way until Tuesday or Wednesday, Miami Mayor Francis Suarez told CNN Friday.
