The Tropical storm known as Isaias has officially stormed into the category of a Category One Hurricane. This hurricane is slowly moving towards the US East Coast, especially North Carolina. On Friday morning, the hurricane seemed to be moving towards the Turks and Caicos, bringing heavy shower on the Bahamas.
