Hurricane Isaias is expected to become a category two storm when it reaches the Florida coast this weekend. The National Hurricane Center said the storm will pick up speed as it hits the warm waters north of the Bahamas and it could have sustained winds of 100 miles per hour.
The National Hurricane Center says there is a risk winds, rain and storm surge will cause problems from northeastern Florida up the U.S. east coast through early next week. There is a chance it will be a category two hurricane when it reaches the Florida coast. After that it is expected to travel north up the coastline toward Georgia and the Carolinas before it starts to slow down.
