Tropical Storm Isaias Likely To Form In Atlantic

Tropical Storm Isaias Likely To Form In Atlantic

A viral video purportedly shows section of the border wall separating the United States and Mexico collapsing under strong winds and heavy rains from Tropical Storm Hanna.

The coast between Corpus Christi and Brownsville has struggled to contain outbreaks of Covid-19 in recent weeks.

"We'll continue to see dramatic waves of flooding including flash flooding that will come upon people suddenly", the governor said Saturday.

A hurricane warning is now in force stretching from Port Mansfield to Mesquite Bay.

Hurricane conditions were expected across northern Kauai, including up to three to six inches of rain, which posed a threat of flash floods and landslides.

Hanna was about 113 kilometers south of Corpus Christi when it made landfall, with the city of 325,000 home to one of Texas's virus hotspots. Over 173,000 customers are without power in Hidalgo County alone, according to local power companies.

Water rescues also were reported in Hidalgo County, and major flooding was experienced in Edinburg, McAllen, Mission, San Juan and Weslaco. "People were up around the clock over the weekend; instead of relaxing on Sunday like we normally like to do with our families and go to church, we had 300 people out there, early in the morning, firing up trucks to get our city back to normal".

"You're asked to only report downed power lines or safety hazards".

Two factors that support intensification are warmer sea surface temperatures as the storm moves west-northwest, as well as less intrusion of dry air that had worked against the storm's development on Sunday into Monday.

"The combination of a unsafe storm surge and the tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters moving inland from the shoreline, " the Miami-based Hurricane Center said.

Hawaii is preparing for the onslaught of Hurricane Douglas, which is projected to start impacting the island state on Sunday.

"It is important to not focus on the exact track of the system".

However, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) anticipates that this area of disturbed weather will become Tropical Storm Isaias before reaching Puerto Rico and the Leeward Islands on Wednesday through Thursday.

The Army Corps confirmed the video was from June 5, when a high wind gust knocked over panels in the El Paso area. Tropical storm watch is in effect for Tobago and Grenada and its dependencies.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency and U.S. President Donald Trump approved a federal emergency declaration in response to Hanna, allowing for federal assistance and reimbursement for evacuation efforts and shelter support.
