situation overview
------------------

tropical storm isaias is forecast to move northward near or along the 
southeast coast today then move inland over the south carolina or north
carolina coast this evening. the storm is then expected to be over 
eastern virginia and the delmarva on tuesday. isaias will then move 
northeast across new england wednesday.

on the current forecast track, expect conditions to deteriorate across
the local area late monday night into tuesday morning. tropical storm
force winds are possible late monday night into tuesday, especially
along and east of i-95. wind gusts to 50 to 60 mph are possible. these
winds combined with the expected saturated soils could cause down
trees and power lines. in addition, heavy rainfall amounts of 3 to
6 inches could cause areas of flash flooding even well inland.
moderate coastal flooding is also possible, with 1 to 3 feet of
inundation. lastly, there is a marginal risk of tornadoes late monday
night into tuesday, mainly along the coastal plain and eastern shore.

tropical storm force winds are expected over the entire marine area
late monday night into tuesday with gusts as high as 60 knots. in
addition, seas will build to 10 to 14 feet over the coastal waters by
tuesday morning.

potential impacts
-----------------

* wind:
protect against dangerous wind having possible significant impacts
across far eastern virginia, the maryland eastern shore and northeast 
north carolina. potential impacts in this area include:
    - some damage to roofing and siding, along with damage to 
      porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. some buildings 
      experience window, door, and garage door failures. mobile homes 
      damaged, some destroyed, especially if poorly anchored or 
      exposed to wind. unsecured lightweight objects become dangerous 
      projectiles.
    - large trees snapped or uprooted, especially in areas where 
      soils are saturated. some roadway signs will be blown over.
    - some roads will be impassable from large debris including 
      bridges, causeways, and access routes.
    - scattered to widespread power and communications outages.

also, protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts 
across far eastern virginia, the maryland eastern shore and northeast 
north carolina.

* surge:
protect against locally hazardous surge having possible limited impacts
across far eastern virginia, the maryland eastern shore and northeast 
north carolina. potential impacts in this area include:
    - widespread storm surge flooding of vulnerable areas will result 
      in an elevated threat of property damage to homes and 
      businesses near the waterfront and shoreline.
    - sections of low-lying vulnerable roads, parking lots and 
      property will likely become flooded. driving conditions could 
      become dangerous in places where flooding covers the road.
    - moderate to severe beach erosion is likely, including heavy 
      surf possibly breaching dunes, especially in vulnerable 
      locations. strong and dangerous rip currents are likely.
    - minor to moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, and 
      piers is likely. a few small craft broken away from moorings.

elsewhere across central and eastern virginia...northeast north 
carolina...and the lower maryland eastern shore, little to no impact 
is anticipated.

* flooding rain:
protect against life-threatening rainfall flooding having possible
extensive impacts across central and eastern virginia, the maryland 
eastern shore and northeast north carolina. potential impacts include:
    - evacuations and rescues likely due to flooding from heavy 
      rainfall 
    - rivers and tributaries may rapidly overflow their banks in 
      multiple places. small streams, creeks, and ditches may become 
      dangerous rivers. flood control systems and barriers may become 
      overwhelmed.
    - flood waters enter structures within multiple communities, with 
      some structures becoming uninhabitable or washed away. some 
      escape routes inundated by flood waters. streets, parking lots 
      and underpasses could be submerged, with driving conditions 
      quickly becoming dangerous. numerous road and bridge closures 
      are expected with some becoming weakened or washed out. 

protect against dangerous rainfall flooding having possible 
significant impacts across far eastern virginia, the maryland eastern 
shore and northeast north carolina.

* tornadoes:
protect against a dangerous tornado event having possible significant
impacts across far eastern virginia, the maryland eastern shore and
northeast north carolina. potential impacts include:
    - some tornadoes are expected, some of which could be intense. as 
      a result, execution of emergency plans could be hindered in 
      affected areas.
    - several places may experience tornado damage, with a few areas 
      of considerable damage, power loss, and communications failures.
    - locations could realize roofs torn off frame houses, mobile 
      homes demolished, large trees snapped or uprooted, vehicles 
      tumbled, and small boats tossed about.

protect against a tornado event having possible limited impacts 
across far eastern virginia, the maryland eastern shore and northeast 
north carolina.

elsewhere across central and eastern virginia...northeast north 
carolina...and the lower maryland eastern shore, little to no impact 
is anticipated.

precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

* other preparedness information:
now is the time to complete all preparations to protect life and 
property in accordance with your emergency plan. ensure you are in a 
safe location before the onset of strong winds or possible flooding.

if you are relocating to safe shelter, leave as early as possible. 
allow extra time to reach your destination. many roads and bridges 
will be closed once strong winds arrive. check the latest weather 
forecast before departing and drive with caution.

if heading to a community shelter, become familiar with the shelter 
rules before arrival, especially if you have special needs or have 
pets. take essential items with you from your emergency supplies kit.

failure to adequately shelter may result in serious injury or loss of 
life. always heed the advice of local officials and comply with any 
orders that are issued. remember, during the storm 9 1 1 emergency 
services may not be able to immediately respond if conditions are 
unsafe. this should be a big factor in your decision making.

keep cell phones well charged. cell phone chargers for automobiles 
can be helpful, but be aware of your risk for deadly carbon monoxide 
poisoning if your car is left idling in a garage or other poorly 
ventilated area.

it is important to remain calm, informed, and focused during an 
emergency. be patient and helpful with those you encounter.

if you are a visitor, be sure to know the name of the city or town in 
which you are staying and the name of the county or parish in which 
it resides. listen for these locations in local news updates. pay 
attention for instructions from local authorities.

storm surge is the leading killer associated with tropical storms and 
hurricanes! make sure you are in a safe area away from the surge 
zone. even if you are not in a surge-prone area, you could find 
yourself cutoff by flood waters during and after the storm. heed 
evacuation orders issued by the local authorities.

rapidly rising flood waters are deadly. if you are in a flood-prone 
area, consider moving to higher ground. never drive through a flooded 
roadway. remember, turn around don't drown!

if a tornado warning is issued for your area, be ready to shelter 
quickly, preferably away from windows and in an interior room not 
prone to flooding. if driving, scan the roadside for quick shelter 
options.

if in a place that is vulnerable to high wind, such as near large 
trees, a manufactured home, upper floors of a high-rise building, or 
on a boat, consider moving to a safer shelter before the onset of 
strong winds or flooding.

closely monitor weather.gov, noaa weather radio or local news outlets 
for official storm information. be ready to adapt to possible changes 
to the forecast. ensure you have multiple ways to receive weather 
warnings.

significant flash flooding of small streams and creeks is likely 
tonight into tuesday evening as rainfall associated with tropical storm
isaias spreads northward. widespread rainfall totals of 3 to 6 inches 
are expected with locally higher amounts possible. the highest amounts 
are expected east of the blue ridge mountains particularly over the 
i-95 corridor late tonight through tuesday. moderate coastal flooding 
is also possible at times of high tide tuesday as isaias makes its 
closest approach to the area. minor wind damage and scattered power 
outages are also possible especially across southern maryland.

potential impacts
-----------------

* flooding rain:
protect against life-threatening rainfall flooding having possible
extensive impacts across much of the area. potential impacts include:
    - major rainfall flooding may prompt many evacuations and rescues.
    - rivers and tributaries may rapidly overflow their banks in 
      multiple places. small streams, creeks, canals, arroyos, and 
      ditches may become dangerous rivers. in mountain areas, 
      destructive runoff may run quickly down valleys while 
      increasing susceptibility to rockslides and mudslides. flood 
      control systems and barriers may become stressed.
    - flood waters can enter many structures within multiple 
      communities, some structures becoming uninhabitable or washed 
      away. many places where flood waters may cover escape routes. 
      streets and parking lots become rivers of moving water with 
      underpasses submerged. driving conditions become dangerous. 
      many road and bridge closures with some weakened or washed out.

protect against dangerous rainfall flooding having possible limited 
to significant impacts across much of the area.

* wind:
protect against dangerous wind having possible significant impacts
across southern maryland. potential impacts in this area include:
    - some damage to roofing and siding materials, along with damage 
      to porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. a few buildings 
      experiencing window, door, and garage door failures. mobile 
      homes damaged, especially if unanchored. unsecured lightweight 
      objects become dangerous projectiles.
    - several large trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater 
      numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. several 
      fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - some roads impassable from large debris, and more within urban 
      or heavily wooded places. a few bridges, causeways, and access 
      routes impassable.
    - scattered power and communications outages, but more prevalent 
      in areas with above ground lines.

also, protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts 
across the washington and baltimore metro area.

* surge:
protect against locally hazardous surge having possible limited impacts
across southern maryland. potential impacts in this area include:
    - localized inundation with storm surge flooding mainly along 
      immediate shorelines and in low-lying spots, or in areas 
      farther inland near where higher surge waters move ashore.
    - sections of near-shore roads and parking lots become overspread 
      with surge water. driving conditions dangerous in places where 
      surge water covers the road.
    - moderate beach erosion. heavy surf also breaching dunes, mainly 
      in usually vulnerable locations. strong rip currents.
    - minor to locally moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, 
      and piers. a few small craft broken away from moorings.

elsewhere across eastern west virginia, central and western maryland, 
northern and northwestern virginia, and district of columbia, little 
to no impact is anticipated.

* tornadoes:
protect against a tornado event having possible limited impacts across
southern maryland. potential impacts include:
    - the occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution 
      of emergency plans during tropical events.
    - a few places may experience tornado damage, along with power 
      and communications disruptions.
    - locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, chimneys 
      toppled, mobile homes pushed off foundations or overturned, 
      large tree tops and branches snapped off, shallow-rooted trees 
      knocked over, moving vehicles blown off roads, and small boats 
      pulled from moorings.

situation overview
------------------

tropical storm isaias is currently located just offshore of the 
northeast florida coast. the storm is expected to continue northward 
along the east coast. it will likely move inland over the carolinas 
this evening and approach our region by late tonight and especially 
tuesday. impacts should diminish by wednesday morning.

the main threats with this system are heavy rainfall leading to flash
flooding and some river flooding, strong winds especially near the
coast, minor to potentially moderate coastal flooding, and dangerous
marine conditions.

we are most concerned about flash flooding caused by 4 to 6 inches of
rain, as well as strong winds along the new jersey and delaware coasts
with wind gusts of 60 to 70 mph possible. secondary threats include
minor to locally moderate coastal flooding, especially in chesapeake
bay, as well as the potential for isolated tornadoes. dangerous rip
currents and 8 to 12 foot seas are also expected over the waters.

potential impacts
-----------------

* flooding rain:
protect against life-threatening rainfall flooding having possible
extensive impacts across northern delmarva, western new jersey, and
much of southeastern pennsylvania. potential impacts include:
    - major rainfall flooding may prompt water rescues.
    - rivers and tributaries may rapidly overflow their banks in
      multiple places. small streams, creeks, canals, and ditches may
      become dangerous rivers. in hilly terrain, destructive runoff 
      may run quickly down valleys while increasing susceptibility to 
      rockslides and mudslides. flood control systems and barriers may 
      become stressed.
    - flood waters can enter structures within multiple communities,
      some structures becoming uninhabitable or washed away. streets
      and parking lots may become rivers of moving water with 
      underpasses submerged. driving conditions may become dangerous. 
      possible road and bridge closures with some weakened or washed 
      out.
