Since then, Isaac has meandered in the Caribbean Sea and, as a depression, lashed the Lesser Antilles Friday morning with rain squalls and 35 miles per hour winds.

As a result, two foreign governments and one local government have taken the decision to end their islands' storm warnings or storm watches.

Tropical Storm Watches were also discontinued for St. Maarten, St. Martin, Saba and Eustatius.

Tropical storm conditions are expected within the tropical storm warning area beginning within the next few hours through the afternoon.

States of emergency were declared in the Carolinas; Virginia; Washington, DC; and Maryland, where some coastal areas are still recovering from summer storms. The Norwegian Escape, now at sea, will skip a call in Bermuda, which is not in the path of the storm but is expecting a lot of rain, and replace it with one in the Bahamas. "We are still in the peak of the 2018 hurricane season; therefore, residents must continue to remain vigilant, monitor the weather and ensure emergency supply kits are prepared with up to ten days of supplies". A watch is typically issued 48 hours before tropical-storm-force winds are expected to arrive, which makes outside preparations hard or unsafe - and Tropical-storm-force winds are possible within the tropical storm watch area today. Besides Florence, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) is monitoring four other systems now.

Swells generated by Isaac are affecting portions of the Lesser Antilles.

The GOES-East weather satellite, which keeps a constant eye on the East Coast and the Atlantic, has captured some breathtaking images of Hurricane Florence, Tropical Storm Isaac and Hurricane Helene approaching the Americas (in that order).

As of 10 a.m. CDT Tropical Storm Isaac was located about 420 miles east of Martinique and was moving west at 17 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The storm brought high storm surge near 13 feet and flooding rain as far as 40 miles inland of the storm.
