The US National Hurricane Center reported that Hurricane "Isaias" struck North Carolina with a storm of the first degree, as the wind speed reached 85 miles per hour (140 km).

The hurricane hit the southern part of the state near the "Ocean Isle Beach", and meteorologists warned of heavy rains carried by the hurricane, in addition to strong winds that pose a threat to residents and property.

Faced with this threat, US President Donald Trump announced a state of emergency in Florida and North and South Carolina, with the aim of releasing federal funds.

He warned during a press conference that "everyone should remain vigilant" and said: "I encourage everyone to follow the directions of local authorities and states."

At the end of the week, North Carolina's governor, Roy Cooper, called for good behavior, such as not driving on flooded roads, taking shelter in a safe place, and preparing emergency equipment.
