Heavy rains and winds from Tropical Storm Isaias struck Florida early Sunday morning, as officials prepared for the downgraded hurricane to make its way up the East Coast.

“We’ll start seeing impacts tonight,” Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis warned at a news conference on Saturday. “Don’t be fooled by the downgrade.

Isaias was downgraded from a hurricane Saturday after wreaking havoc on the Caribbean, where it uprooted trees, destroyed crops and homes and caused widespread flooding.

As of Sunday at 8 a.m., the tropical storm was making its way up the Atlantic coast at around eight miles per hour, with wind gusts of 65 miles per hour, the National Hurricane Center said.

The storm is not expected to gain strength in the coming days, forecasts said, contradicting earlier predictions.

Still, Florida’s eastern shore should expect up to four feet of flooding in some places. Heavy rains may extended as far north as New England, The Weather Channel said.

The storm is not expected to make actual landfall in the continental United State until Tuesday in South Carolina.

Tropical Storm Isaias Threatens US Atlantic Coast

Florida and the U.S. East Coast may have dodged a hurricane bullet, but that does not mean Tropical Storm Isaias is no longer a danger.

Isaias was downgraded from a hurricane to a tropical storm, but the National Hurricane Center in Miami says Isaias still threatens to bring heavy rain, fierce winds and life-threatening storm surges to anyone in its path.

A tropical storm warning is out from Jupiter, Florida, to Surf City, North Carolina, in the southeastern U.S. Forecasters urge residents along the Mid-Atlantic coast to keep a close eye on the storm, which is forecast to soak the New England states by midweek.

Isaias is expected to drench the northwestern Bahamas with as much as 20 centimeters (8 inches) of rain Sunday, and 15 centimeters (6 inches) of rain is forecast for northeastern Florida. Isaias has already knocked out power and destroyed trees in parts of the Bahamas.

Tornadoes are also possible in the Carolinas.

As of midday Sunday, Isaias was about 150 kilometers (93 miles) southeast of Cape Canaveral with top sustained winds of 100 kph (62 mph).

It’s a slow-moving storm, drifting to the northwest about 15 kph (9 mph). The slower a storm moves, the greater the threat of flooding.
