Isaias made landfall near Ocean Isle Beach, N.C., just after 11 p.m. EDT on Monday as a Category 1 hurricane, causing flooding and several home fires. Its maximum sustained winds reached 85 mph. But as the storm center moved inland, it was downgraded to a tropical storm with 70 mph winds and an increasing threat of tornadoes in southeastern Virginia and northward.
