Tropical Storm Isaias is working its way up the southeast coast of the U.S. and is expected to make landfall in the Carolinas late Monday night.
With winds around 70 mph, the storm would have to strengthen a bit to make landfall as a Category 1 hurricane with winds of 74-95 mph.
Hurricane warnings have been issued for parts of the Carolinas and tropical storm alerts stretch from Florida to New England as the storm approaches northeastern South Carolina and southern North Carolina.
