NEW JERSEY (CBSNewYork) – People across New Jersey are preparing for Tropical Storm Isaias, which could deliver another blow to businesses, CBS2’s Jenna DeAngelis reported Monday.

The water was calm and people were relaxing at Sea Bright Beach, but Gov. Phil Murphy was warning people to take extra precautions and watch out for rip currents.

Drone Force 2 flew over the beach, where the scene will be much different come Tuesday.

“We prepare for the worst and we hope for the best,” said Jim Forsman, from the Sea Bright Fire Department.

The fire department is rolling out its high-water rescue vehicles.

“They can climb over any sand or obstacles that are on the road,” said Forsman.

Isaias could potentially bring 70 MPH wind gusts to the Jersey Shore.

Crews at Bay Head Beach were out removing lifeguard stands.

Restaurants in Montclair, N.J. were preparing to do the same with their outdoor dining tables and tents.

“We’ll definitely have to take these down,” said Pawel Wnek, who works at Ah’ Pizz.

The restaurant relies on outdoor dining, but drenching rain means that won’t be an option.

“No one’s gonna come out. It’s just gonna rely on takeout. We’re not gonna send any of our drivers out if it’s really bad out there, as well. So, it’s definitely gonna have an impact on us,” said Wnek.

The storm is a double whammy for businesses already hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic.

“On top of dealing with the smaller capacities, on top of dealing with the fact that only half the people are ready to come out and shop and eat… This storm’s gonna have an absolutely devastating impact,” said Jason Gleason, executive director of the Montclair Center Business Improvement District.

Areas prone to flooding are taking extra precautions. Harrison, N.J. is prepared to use its senior center as a storm shelter, if necessary.

“We’ve alerted the schools, we’ve alerted the police department. And there’s extra policemen coming in. [Department of Public Works] has all hands on deck, for tomorrow,” said Mayor James Fife.

New Jersey has also been in contact with FEMA.

“Obviously, there is the possibility for some trees to come down and for power outages,” said Gov. Murphy. “Heed the warnings… If your power goes out, don’t assume your neighbor’s calling it in.”

Murphy said the best advice is to stay home during the brunt of the storm.

Tigers bad season gets even worse with concerning update on Tarik Skubal

Detroit Tigers ace Tarik Skubal could be out for awhile, especially after the latest injury update given by manager AJ Hinch.

Skubal pulled himself from a recent start with elbow soreness, and for good reason.

Given Detroit’s recent luck with pitcher injuries, we can assume he’ll be out for quite some time. Manager AJ Hinch’s update sure doesn’t sound promising, to say the least.

“We’re concerned about Tarik,” Hinch said, per MLB.com. “He’s not going to pitch for the rest of the season, that much we know, which is why we put him on the 60-day [injured list]. The inflammation, the pain that he’s felt continued when he started throwing again.”

Skubal won’t pitch again this season, as Hinch suggests. This is not out of an abundance of caution — it’s because Detroit truly doesn’t know how long their ace will be out for.

Tarik Skubal injury: Tigers ace could be out awhile

Skubal was placed on the 15-day injured list in early August, when he originally pulled himself from the start. After an evaluation from team doctors, Skubal is going for a second opinion — which is rarely a good sign.

“Pitchers pride themselves from staying on the field and not ever coming off the field,” Hinch said. “But when he told me in the last start to come out, that’s obviously concerning because that rarely, if ever, happens. It’s probably a peek into exactly what he was feeling.”

Skubal would be just another in a string of tough Tigers injury updates. Casey Mize, formerly the top pitching prospect in the rotation before he went down to Tommy John surgery, suffered a similar fate.

Hopefully, Skubal won’t be next. But it doesn’t look good for the outset. Without Skubal and Mize, Matt Manning is next man up in terms of a hopeful outlook on the Detroit rotation.
