ALG Connect Weather Alert: Tropical Storm Isaias

Hurricane Warning Issued as Tropical Storm Isaias Takes Aim at Carolinas, East Coast


Tropical Storm Isaias (ees-ah-EE-ahs) is expected to regain hurricane strength before it pushes ashore into the Carolinas later Monday with strong winds, flooding rainfall and storm surge flooding. The storm will then spread its impacts up the East Coast as far north as New England through Tuesday night.


A hurricane warning has been issued for a portion of the upper South Carolina and lower North Carolina coasts since Isaias is forecast to make landfall as a Category 1 hurricane tonight. The hurricane warning includes Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and Wilmington, North Carolina.


Isaias is currently centered just off of Florida's northeast coast. The storm is tracking to the north and will gradually turn toward the northeast. Isaias is forecast to briefly regain hurricane status before making landfall Monday night or early Tuesday on the upper South Carolina coast or in southeast North Carolina.


Tropical storm conditions (winds 39 to 73 mph) will spread up the immediate East Coast through Tuesday night in areas under tropical storm warnings. Dangerous storm surge flooding is possible in parts of the Carolinas.


A storm surge of 3 to 5 feet, above ground level, is expected if peak surge occurs at the time of high tide on the upper South Carolina and southeast North Carolina coasts. The highest surge should occur immediately to the east of where Isaias is expected to move ashore. The high tide of most concern in the Carolinas is Monday evening.


We recognize the severe impact that current conditions are having on our customers and we are committed to restoring service levels as quickly as possible. As a result of these weather issues, the ALG Client Service Team will send daily updates as we monitor the progress and track job level impact.
