Storm Isaias cut power to more than 2.7 million consumers on the East coast of the US

Tropical storm Isaias left more than 2.7 million consumers without power in eight states on the East coast of the United States. This was reported on Tuesday by CNN with reference to data from energy companies.





Residents and businesses in New Jersey were most affected. “There were reports of more than 1.3 million power supply violations in the state. Some outages may continue for several days due to the strength of the storm,” state Governor Phil Murphy wrote on Twitter.

According to data posted on portals that track power outages, more than 303,000 consumers were left without power in North Carolina. In the neighboring state of Virginia-more than 347 thousand, in Maryland-more than 43.8 thousand.

Hurricane Isaias hit North Carolina on Monday evening. It has now weakened and is again considered a tropical storm.

The hurricane season usually lasts six months in the Atlantic — from the beginning of June to the end of November. An atmospheric phenomenon is classified as a tropical storm and gets a name if the wind speed within its limits reaches about 17.5 m/s. At a wind speed of 33 m/s or more, the storm becomes a hurricane.
