Update: Isaias continues to track towards the Carolina coast, with impacts likely on Sunday into Monday, although the storm is too far out to predict how strong it will be at that time.

SOUTHEASTERN, N.C. — A tropical storm that formed Wednesday made landfall early Thursday morning in Puerto Rico, causing power outages and other damage.

The National Weather Service predicts tropical storm Isaias will continue to make impacts in the Caribbean before arriving in along the Florida coast over the weekend.

Isaias could wind its way near the Carolinas, as the NWS’ forecast cone predicts, but it is still too soon to tell the magnitude and location of potential impacts. According to the NWS forecast cone, tropical-storm-force winds could arrive along the North Carolina Coast by Sunday.

As of 5 a.m. Thursday morning, Isaias had maximum sustained winds of 60 mph and is moving 21 mph over Puerto Rico. For more information, visit the NWS.
