Tropical Storm Isaias Heads Towards New Jersey

A major Atlantic storm is heading up the eastern coast of the US, with New Jersey directly in its sights. The storm, named Isaias (pronounced ees-ah-EE-ahs), is centered near Palm Beach, Florida, and is no longer a hurricane, but is still packing tropical-storm-force winds.

The latest forecast from the National Weather Service has Tropical Storm Isaias turning north/northeast and barreling up the coast, reaching New Jersey late Tuesday morning, bringing with it drenching rain, high winds, and dangerous currents at the shore.

If forecasts remain the same, the eye of the storm will remain on land, passing between Lakewood and Trenton as it moves in a northeasterly direction toward New England.

The New Jersey Office of Emergency Management says it is closely monitoring the storm, and is urging all New Jersey residents to prepare in the event that the storm causes widespread damage or power outages.
