Trump has declared a state of emergency in North Carolina because of the storm Isaias

The tropical storm is expected to make landfall on Monday evening.

Meteorologists have warned of the threat of heavy rains and strong winds, while tropical storm Isaias is moving north along the East coast of the United States. It is expected to make landfall on Monday evening near the border between North and South Carolina.

The National hurricane watch center said the center of the Isaias will remain at sea as it moves along Florida and Georgia on Monday.

The wind speed inside the Isaias reached 110 kilometers per hour on Monday night, and it is expected that it will still be classified as a powerful tropical storm when it makes landfall.

According to forecasters, North and South Carolinas and other states in the region can expect between 7 and 15 centimeters of rain when the storm moves north in the next few days.

Storm warnings on Monday night were in effect along the entire coast – from Florida to Delaware.

President Donald Trump declared a state of emergency in North Carolina before the storm arrived there to free up federal funds to help cities and coordinate disaster relief efforts.
On Saturday, Trump issued a similar Declaration for Florida.
