Tropical Storm Isaias, which was a hurricane as it made landfall in North Carolina last night as a Category 1, swiftly moved into our area this morning bringing heavy rain, flash flooding, coastal flooding, tornadoes and Tropical Storm force wind gusts.
Moderate coastal flooding is still possible along the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay.
Isaias may be gone but it left hefty rainfall totals up to 5+ inches in spots and damage in its wake.
Isaias barreled through the area starting at 28 mph, then 33 mph, then 35 mph before departing around 12:30 p.m. today, making a run towards New England.
We say bye bye to Isaias but more tropical systems may be on the horizon. The Tropics are active and the peak of the Atlantic hurricane season is getting closer and closer....September 10.
