Eye on the Storm as Isaias heads north to New England

Isaias (E- zah – E – us), now a tropical storm after making landfall in North Carolina as a Category One hurricane around 11pm last night near Ocean Isle. Tuesday will be spent by many down East assessing storm damage.  Thousands without power this morning. *Several homes were destroyed after a tornado touched down in Bertie County overnight. The Atlantic coast has seen worse, but Isaias could stay at or near tropical storm strength all the way to New England.

*Ocean Isle Beach is located in Brunswick County, north of Sunset beach
