Tropical Storm Isaias is continuing its push toward Florida‘s east coast on Sunday after battering the Bahamas with heavy rainfall and gusty winds.

Isaias, which was downgraded to a tropical storm after reaching hurricane status, is whipping up sustained winds of 65 miles per hour and could bring 1 to 7 inches of rainfall from Florida to New England in the coming week, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The NHC expects the storm to affect the coasts of Florida, South Carolina and North Carolina in the next 36 hours.

The center said water could rise between 2 and 4 feet above ground level along that stretch of coast in the next 48 hours.

Isaias is expected to remain a tropical storm well into midweek as it tracks up the East Coast.

The NHC said that in addition to storm surge, much of the East Coast could see flash flooding and urban flooding as well as ocean swells and tornadoes.

DeSantis has declared a state of emergency for counties along the state‘s Atlantic coast.
