Outer Bands of Hurricane Isaias Buffet Florida's Vero Beach

Winds picked up in Vero Beach on the morning of August 1 as Hurricane Isaias moved north from the Bahamas towards Florida.

Though the storm was not expected to make landfall in Florida, local meteorologists said it would bring dangerous storm surges, possible flash-flooding, and high winds to sections of Florida’s east coast.

The National Hurricane Center said in its 11am EDT update that hurricane conditions and storm surges would persist in areas of the northwest Bahamas and could affect portions of east Florida later on Saturday and into Sunday. Credit: Kenneth Reece via Storyful
