Tropical storm Isaias moving toward Florida becomes a category-1 hurricane

Tropical storm Isaias moving toward Florida becomes a category-1 hurricane
Tropical cyclone Isaias, which is moving towards the Florida coast, has morphed into a category-1 hurricane, the National Hurricane Center has reported. The storm initially formed south of Puerto Rico.

The National Hurricane Center has issued a hurricane warning for the Bahamas, as Isaias continues to move northwest at 18 mph, with maximum sustained winds of 80 mph.

On Thursday, Iasias caused power outages, flooding and small landslides as it passed over Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, where it also triggered evacuations.

Florida emergency officials warned residents of heavy rain and strong winds by the end of this week. On Wednesday, Governor Ron DeSantis urged everyone to stock up with supplies for at least seven days.
