The 2 p.m. update from the National Hurricane Center has Tropical Storm Isias re-organizing into a Category 1 hurricane.

Isias is currently moving 9 miles per hour and is expected to make a 2 a.m. direct landfall somewhere between Winyah Bay (in Georgetown, S.C.) and Little Rivers, S.C.

Myrtle Beach should get a full impact from Isias. However, the category 1 storm is considered among the lowest on the NOAA model.

Projected winds are 80 miles per hour upon landfall.

High storm surge of up to 3 feet is expected due to a full moon. Full moon hurricanes often create king tides with higher than normal storm surge.

From 3 to 5 inches of rain is expected.
