The National Hurricane Center announced Thursday evening the storm will escalate into a hurricane by Friday or Friday evening and is forecast to move near South Florida on Saturday.

Current storm predictions show Isaias passing just off New York’s coast on Tuesday, though the path could change, forecasters say.

The storm unleashed small landslides and caused widespread flooding and power outages on Puerto Rico, still recovering from previous hurricanes and earthquakes, the the Dominican Republic on Thursday.

The news of the storm’s approach and threat of turning into a hurricane led Flordida to close state-supported COVID-19 testing sites on Thursday at 5pm local time ‘to keep indiviudals operating and attending the sites safe.’

The testing sites will remain closed until it is safe to reopen though officials anticipate all sites to be back open and running by August 5 at 8am at the latest.

Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez said to CNN Thursday he’s concerned about evacuating locals which could further spread the virus.

“Look, if we have a major hurricane here, then we’re going to have to evacuate a number of people and then we’re going to have to … try to keep them separated as much as possible. That’s a concern,” he said.
