An aircraft with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) flew above the eye of Tropical Storm Isaias on August 2 off the coast of Florida as the storm brought dangerous surf and winds to the state and flash flooding to the Bahamas.
The National Hurricane Center expected the tropical storm to track north and begin affecting other coastal states such as South and North Carolina on Monday August 3 and the mid-Atlantic states the following day.
While the storm had weakened from a hurricane in recent days, it was predicted to return to hurricane strength before affecting the Carolinas. Credit: Lt. Cmdr. Doremus, NOAA Corps via Storyful
