Hurricane Isaias: Florida Gov. DeSantis says storm downgraded, but expected to change overnight

CA, 02 Aug 2020
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, during a briefing on storm preparations for Hurricane Isaias, said on Saturday afternoon that an advisory from the National Hurricane Center has seen Isaias downgraded to a tropical storm, but that it is expected to be upgraded to a hurricane once more overnight.

DeSantis said the state can expect impact from the storm to be seen overnight Saturday into Sunday. He also asked people to be prepared for power outages as high winds likely will bring down tree limbs, which often interact with power lines.

There are 16 counties that have declared states of emergency, with at least one county issuing a voluntary evacuation order.
