Transcript for Carolinas brace for Tropical Storm Isaias
The storm is expected to hit the Carolinas particularly hard with flash flooding, very real possibility. Eva pilgrim joins from Charleston, South Carolina, a state where we've seen an increase in coronavirus hospitalizations. Good morning, Eva. Reporter: Good morning, robin. Hospitals here dealing with covid. Now they're preparing for a possible hurricane. This pandemic has in some part changed how they have to plan for these types of storms. Hospitals often evacuate inland during a hurricane. Hurricane Matthew in 2016, Irma in 2017. Both caused major flooding and damage. This year is different. Limited space due to covid-19, social distancing and transporting has many hospitals sheltering in place. The bar to move patient will be high. A lot of health officials saying if this storm isn't too bad, it's safer to stay put. This is a hospital by hospital decision, but all eyes watching as this storm tracks up the east coast to see where it goes and how it takes land. Amy? Eva, thank you so much.
