Elsa, the first hurricane of the 2021 Atlantic hurricane season, swept through the Caribbean, causing power outages, significant wind damage, downed trees and damaged buildings. The storm lost wind intensity, becoming a tropical storm early this morning. It’s now strengthening in the Gulf of Mexico and could strike Florida's west coast, including parts of the Tampa - St. Petersburg metro area, as a hurricane tonight into Wednesday. Forecasts call for storm surge, high winds, flooding rain and isolated tornados.
Other parts of the Southeast, including southeast Georgia, the coastal Carolinas and southeast Virginia, will see some impact from Elsa late Wednesday into Thursday night. Elsa could then brush parts of southeast New England on Friday.
