The latest update from the National Hurricane Center placed Isaias east of Richmond, Virginia. ABC11 meteorologist Don “Big Weather” Schwenneker said the storm had probably arrived in Virginia before 6 a.m., which means that it was in North Carolina just under 7 hours.

The National Hurricane Center update at 8 a.m. said Isaias was moving at 33 mph. it was moving at 24 miles an hour when it landed Monday night. The storm in Philadelphia will be at the top on Tuesday at 2 p.m.

The rain from Isaias has stopped falling across North Carolina.

Isaiah brought dangerous wind, heavy rain and storm surges to various areas from the coast to central North Carolina. The city of Oak Island, which is near the landing of Isaias, has been significantly damaged by city officials, according to a social media post.

According to Governor Roy Cooper, the storm has spawned several tornadoes. At least one person died from these tornadoes in Bertie County.

The heaviest rain recorded so far was about 5 inches in the Wilmington area. Isaias dropped between 1 and 3 inches across central and eastern North Carolina.

The rest of Tuesday looks beautiful, with mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-1980s.

For the rest of the week, temperatures remain in the upper 80s and there is a chance of occasional storms as the same weather pattern that has driven Isaias out of our region continues to cause atmospheric disturbances in North Carolina that can develop into pop-ups Storms.
