Weather conditions were windy but dry at about 8:15 p.m., allowing beachgoers to enjoy the sights.
“We’re not really doing much. Now it’s a tropical storm, so it’s not that strong,” one beachgoer said. “You’re not worried about it at all?” asked WFLX reporter Michelle Quesada. “No.”
Chief First Alert Weather Meteorologist Steve Weagle said Isaias is still expected to get better organized and become a hurricane again after it was downgraded to a tropical storm at 5 p.m. Saturday.
