Tropical Storm Isaias Hits East Coast
Hurricane Isaias reached Florida. Slightly reduced in speed, it became Tropical Storm Isaias as it began going north along it's coast, hitting Georgia and South Carolina on Monday. As this article is being written, it's hitting the coast of North Carolina, and as the day goes on will continue to travel northeast, hitting Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, and New Jersey. On Wednesday, remnants of the storm will hit New York and New England.
With it's high winds, the storm will cause many power outages in it's path. This includes the areas where yours truly and one of the Newser reporters lives. So for some Second Life users, power may be out for a while. In the meantime, those in it's path keep your batteries and canned goods (and books) for a possible day without power.
