Hurricane Idalia Tracking Towards National Parks


As Tropical Storm Idalia grew into a hurricane Monday, storm warnings were out for Dry Tortugas National Park in Florida while Fort Pulaski National Monument in Georgia closed to get ready for the storm.

The storm prompted the National Hurricane Center to issue a tropical storm warming for Dry Tortugas. Heavy rains and winds above 39 mph were forecast for the park.

Officials at Fort Pulaski, which the storm was expected to reach by Wednesday, said the park was closing at noon Monday to allow for crews to “finish preparations for expected impacts from Hurricane Idalia.”
