AUFZEICHNUNGEN VON ISAIAS SEIT SEINER BILDUNG GEBROCHEN
Isaias ist der neunte Sturm der Atlantik-Hurrikansaison 2020.
Es ist das früheste Jahr im Jahr, in dem die USA einen Sturm mit dem Namen "Ich" gesehen haben. Der vorherige Rekord wurde am 7. August 2005 aufgestellt.
Isaias ist auch der zweite Sturm, der 2020 den Hurrikanstatus im Atlantik erreicht. Das durchschnittliche Datum für den zweiten Hurrikan liegt später im Monat um den 28. August.
Die Entstehung des Sturms war auch das erste Mal, dass sich in der letzten Juliwoche zwei Hurrikane bildeten.
Die Straßen am Meer in der gesamten Region wurden überflutet, als das Meer fast 10 Fuß über der Ebbe landete.
An der Küste im Süden von North Carolina schlugen starke Winde aus Isaias 'innerem Kern Bäume und Stromleitungen um und blockierten Straßen. Zunächst wurden keine größeren Schäden gemeldet.
Präsident Donald Trump beschrieb Isaias am Montag als "sehr ernst".
"Sturmfluten und Überschwemmungen im Landesinneren sind möglich und jeder muss wachsam bleiben, bis es vorbei ist", sagte Trump.
Die Behörden in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, befahlen Schwimmern, aus dem Wasser zu steigen, um raues Surfen und starke Strömungen zu vermeiden.
Beamte in häufig überflutetem Charleston, South Carolina, verteilten Sandsäcke und eröffneten Parkhäuser, damit die Bewohner der tief liegenden Halbinsel ihre Autos über der Erde verstauen konnten.
Die Fährunternehmen haben am Montag die Evakuierungen von Ocracoke Island in den Outer Banks von North Carolina abgeschlossen und an vier Tagen mehr als 3.500 Menschen und 1.700 Fahrzeuge von der Insel entfernt.
Inselbeamte gingen kein Risiko ein, nachdem sie vor weniger als einem Jahr vom Hurrikan Dorian geschlagen worden waren. Evakuierungsbefehle wurden auch für Hatteras Island nördlich von Ocracoke erteilt.
Die Passage des Sturms in der Nähe von Florida war für Behörden, die sich bereits mit steigenden Coronavirus-Fallzahlen befassten, besonders unerwünscht.
Der Sturm brachte starken Regen und Überschwemmungen in den Staat und zwang die Behörden, die Virentests im Freien sowie Strände und Parks zu schließen.
Beamte befestigten Schilder an Palmen, damit sie nicht wegblasen.
Ungefähr 150 Menschen mussten während des Schutzes in Palm Beach County Masken tragen, wo ein freiwilliger Evakuierungsbefehl für Menschen in Häusern erlassen wurde, die gefährlichen Winden nicht standhalten können, sagte Lisa De La Rionda, Sprecherin des Notfallmanagements.
Isaias was blamed for two deaths in the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico, where it uprooted trees, destroyed crops and homes and caused widespread flooding and small landslides over the weekend.
The storm snapped trees and knocked out power Saturday in the Bahamas.
Shelters were opened on Abaco island to help people still living in temporary structures since Dorian devastated the area, killing at least 70 people in September 2019.
