Tropical Storm Isaias has moved well out of Eastern North Carolina, but not after leaving behind a trail of damage. Gov. Roy Cooper said today the storm made landfall at Ocean Isle Beach with 85 mph winds and 3-5 feet of storm surge. As it moved across Eastern North Carolina, many communities reported downed trees and powerlines and flooding.
“Damaging winds and likely tornadoes spun out from the storm, including one in Bertie County that tragically killed two people, and sent about a dozen others to the hospital,” said Cooper.
