Hurricane Isaias Strengthens and Swirls Towards Florida
And just like that, we have a hurricane. Hurricane Isaias continues to strengthen and make its way towards the east coast. Hurricane Warnings have been issued for the Bahamas and a Hurricane Watch has been issued now for parts of the Florida east coast.
The current models have moved much since yesterday. Florida is still in the cone. Orlando should expect some rainfall, but it’s still hard to determine how much.
Orlando could start feeling effects as early as Saturday night and into Sunday morning.
Today is a big day to watch this storm as it goes over land in the Bahamas and should weaken a bit, but how much and when it strengthens back up is key. It’s forcasted to reach a category 2 by the time it makes landfall in the Bahamas.
There is a risk of impacts from winds, heavy rainfall, and storm surge beginning late this weekend along the northeastern Florida coast and spreading northward along the remainder of the U.S. east coast through early next week.
This is where Disney’s Hurricane Policy comes in. Many visitors worried about potential hurricanes should read this closely as it will hopefully help to put your mind at ease.
