Three Things to Know About Tropical Storm Elsa

July 7, 2021 | 11:57 AM CT

What’s happening?

  • Elsa made landfall as a Tropical Storm along the western Florida coast roughly 50 miles southeast of Tallahassee with sustained winds of up to 65 mph, 10 mph below Category 1 hurricane intensity.
  • The remnants of Elsa will track along the eastern US coast up to Maine, bringing strong winds and heavy rain which will result in localized flooding.
  • Elsa will interact with the jet stream and is expected to re-intensify on Friday, bringing tropical storm-force winds to much of the Northeastern coast.

What’s the greatest concern?

  • Elsa is not expected to stall or bring widespread catastrophic flooding, so the primary impact will be localized flooding.

What does this mean for the affected area?

  • Elsa is not expected to be a catastrophic event, as building standards in hurricane-prone Florida should prevent large-scale wind damage, and Elsa is moving fast enough to prevent widespread flooding.
