Isaias - Used

The fourth largest power outage event in Atlantic City Electric's history came with Isaias, which passed to the west of New Jersey as a tropical storm. 

Isaias continues the blistering pace of the hurricane season, beating out the 2005 season. The "I" storm then, Irene, developed on August 7.

The "I" storm in the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season name is Isaias, the Spanish word for the name Isaiah. Denise Arrigo, Adjunct Professor at Cumberland County College and formed Spanish Teacher at Millville Senior High School, explains how to pronounce the word.

Hurricane Irene would be retired by the World Meteorological Organization in 2011. The storm brought power outages to over 100,000 in South Jersey, a tornado in Vineland and nearly a foot of rain to the Wildwoods. 

This also ties the record for the most number of July tropical systems in a month, at five.
