Hurricane Isaias

Hurricane Isaias was a Category 1 hurricane that impacted portions of the eastern Caribbean and the east coast of the U.S. Isaias first reached hurricane force winds on 7/30 as it tracked across the Bahamas. Encountering wind shear as it neared the east coast of Florida, Isaias was downgraded to a Tropical Storm, with the strongest winds in the northwest quadrant of the system. Isaias regain its strength as it neared the Carolina coast, reaching hurricane force wind speeds hours before making landfall near the border of North and South Carolina on 8/3. From there, Isaias moved quickly across the Mid-Atlantic states and New England, bringing with it tropical storm strength winds and heavy rains, causing downed trees, power outages and flooded streets. By 8/5, Isaias had dissipated north of Quebec City.
