Hurricane Idalia and its Path (Part Two)
Previously we began discussing the path of Hurricane Idalia. We covered its formation in the Caribbean on August 26th before it strengthened to a Category 4 Hurricane by August 30th about to make landfall in Florida. In this second part, we will continue to discuss the path of the recent Hurricane Idalia and where it stands today.
Idalia would make landfall near Keaton Beach as a Category 3 hurricane with sustained winds of 125 mph. As it continued moving through the state, it left the Big Bend area torn along with storm surges flooding parts of Southwest Florida.
Once it was through Florida, Idalia weakened significantly into a tropical storm as it pushed into Georgia. It would continue moving northeast through South Carolina and came back into the Atlantic Ocean on August 31st. Unfortunately, on that same day, Idalia would form into a cyclone near North Carolina, causing strong surges and flooding in the southeast region of the state. As it stands today, the damage is still being assessed, with Florida being a focal point. As recovery efforts continue, it serves as a reminder to the endurance of people moving forward.
