Threats From Elsa Include Brief Flash Flooding, Isolated Tornadoes

All eyes are on Elsa.

The tropical storm is making landfall in Florida this morning after weakening from its hurricane status.

Elsa will then begin its northeast trek toward the Carolinas.

Nick Luchetti is a Meteorologist with the National Weather Service Office in Raleigh.

He says Eastern North Carolina may start to feel the remnants of Elsa starting late tonight.

The main effects of the storm will likely be felt throughout the day on Thursday.

Luchetti says the effects will include a few inches of rain and a possible tornado in a few spots, primarily near and to the east of the I-95 corridor.

Luckily, Luchetti says Elsa will be a quick-moving storm as she reaches Eastern N.C.

No watches or warnings are in place yet for Wayne County, but the National Weather Service says tropical storm conditions are possible on Thursday.

Just to the east, Lenoir and other counties are under a Tropical Storm Watch.
