It’s highest wind speeds are supposed to be over the central and northwestern Bahamas early Saturday with 100 mph maximum sustained wind speeds, but the center of Isaias’ track will be off the coast of Miami Saturday afternoon with 90 mph winds and 115 mph gusts.
The east coast of Florida is in the forecast path of the large hurricane and some models show the eye coming ashore or brushing the coast, according to the Florida Public Radio Emergency Network.

Residents near Florida’s #Atlantic Coast: There is still a plausible scenario where the eye of Hurricane #Isaias comes ashore or brushes coast. At least one of the more “reliable” forecast models suggests this. Stay vigilant! https://t.co/ixBcm9peXZ #flwx pic.twitter.com/EkVgbVWHJU
