LAUDERDALE-BY-THE-SEA (CBSMiami) – A storm threat in the midst of a pandemic, it’s a double whammy South Florida has never faced before.
Thankfully, we are not talking about evacuations but Hurricane Isaias is a reminder that we have a long way to go in the 2020 hurricane season.
At the Lauderdale-by-the-Sea pier Saturday morning, beachgoers were taking in the calm before the storm.
Debbie Filippi from Davie said she’s been keeping up on Isaias progress.
“I have a few cases of water, batteries, some lanterns, ice and of course, paper goods,” she said.
On Friday in Hallandale Beach, which has been prone to flooding, people lined up to get sandbags.
“If you are in a low lying area, stay home during the storm,” Hallandale Beach Mayor Joy Cooper advised.
Broward Mayor Dale Holness said the county is prepared.
“We have shelters that are on the ready. Thirty-four shelters, if we need to open them, we will.”
Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport remains open, but that could change depending on weather conditions. Port Miami and Port Everglades are now closed, as are COVID-19 test sites. Those testing locations will open on Tuesday.
Friday night in Miami, some folks were still enjoying the nice weather with a meal outside.
Some businesses near Miracle Mile have sandbags in place while others said they will wait until Saturday morning to bring in tables and chairs.
“We’re just going to wrap up furniture and everything inside the restaurant. Unfortunately, we’re going to have to close tomorrow because everything is outdoor seating with the rain, and the win we’re not going to be able to have business tomorrow.”

Paris Saint Germain has over $900 million worth of talent in its squad.
However, on a night when it needed a hero, it was a once relegated Premier League flop who joined the club on a free transfer who stepped up to the plate.
Eric Choupo-Moting, who was relegated from the English top flight with Stoke City in 2018 and joined PSG just months later, scored a dramatic 93rd minute winner as the French Champions beat Atalanta on Wednesday night.
In doing so, the French side advanced to the Champions League semifinals for the first time in history.
PSG went behind in just the 26th minute when Mario Pasalic bent in a superb opener, and trailed right until the 90th minute when defender Marquinhos equalized from close range.

"It was all in all a crazy game, a tough game, tough opponent and I think we showed such good morale until the last second. We believed in us," Choupo-Moting, whose contract at PSG expires at the end of August, told BT Sport after.
"It wasn't easy for us, we has some good occasions, they had a great game, unbelievable game.
"When I came on I thought to myself, 'We can't lose, we can't go home like that.' I was confident in the team, in myself and the rest is a little history of Paris."
The 31-year-old's teammates also lauded him with praise after the victory, including Ander Herrera who described the unlikely hero as "incredible."
"Choupo played an incredible 10 minutes. I absolutely want to talk about him," Herrera told RMC Sport.
"He's going to finish his contract but he's there, he's ready to help, he always does training as if it was the last training of his life. "
Choupo-Moting has made 49 appearances in all competitions for PSG since his move from Stoke, scoring nine goals.
PSG will now face either RB Leipzig or Atletico Madrid in the semifinals on August 18.
