Severe thunderstorm warning issued for parts of Wake, Nash, Wilson, Johnston, Franklin counties

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper activated up to 150 National Guard members Saturday as Hurricane Isaias weakened slightly to a tropical storm, but was still forecast to hit eastern North Carolina early next week.

“We all need to be prepared for the dangers that Isaias could bring,” Cooper said in a news release. “As we learned with Hurricane Florence, even a category one storm can bring severe impacts, and we should not take this lightly.”
