Tropical storm Isaias brings severe rainfall to Carolinas

Severe rainfall fell in Winston Salem on Monday (August 3) as Tropical storm Isaias battered the coast of North and South Carolina.

The storm is expected to regain hurricane strength as it moves up the U.S. East Coast toward major cities such as Washington, Philadelphia and New York.

Isaias poses an immediate threat to a stretch of coastline that includes the South Carolina tourist resort of Myrtle Beach and the North Carolina port city of Wilmington.

Though Isaias will likely weaken before dousing the U.S. Northeast on Tuesday, New York City is already bracing for a storm surge in lower Manhattan, mindful of the devastation caused by Superstorm Sandy in 2012.

In a warning to the Carolinas, the National Hurricane Center said: “Preparations to protect life and property should be rushed to completion.”

While a few local officials on the coast ordered evacuations, North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper also warned of inland flooding, as occurred with 2018’s Hurricane Florence, which killed 40 people and caused $17 billion in damage in the state.
