Many businesses in downtown Vero Beach closed early ahead of the storm, and there were few cars on the road.

WPTV spotted a few sightseers at the beach, but they headed back inland once the wind started to increase.

As of 11 p.m., Isaias was still a tropical storm with winds of 70 mph. However, the system is still expected to become a hurricane again before the center of circulation nears Palm Beach County on Sunday morning.
