The US National Hurricane Center reported Tuesday that Hurricane “Isaias” hit North Carolina with a first-class storm force, with wind speeds of 85 miles per hour (140 km).
The hurricane hit the southern part of the state near the “Ocean Isle Beach” area at 11:10 p.m. (10.03 GMT Tuesday).
And weather forecasters warned of heavy rains caused by the hurricane, in addition to strong winds that pose a threat to residents and property.
NASA announced that it is closely following the development of the hurricane, which may delay the return of the “Spaece X” capsule to the planet, two months after its launch on a mission to the International Space Station, which was supposed to return Sunday afternoon to the coast of Florida.
The arrival of the hurricane at a time when Florida has become one of the hotbeds of the Covid-19 epidemic in the United States is a catastrophic scenario for this state, where hospitals are crowded with patients.
