August 4, 2020
Initial reports indicate that minimal damage occurred overnight as Isaias moved west of the Outer Banks. Scattered power outages are reported throughout the Outer Banks due to downed trees along with soundside flooding in some low-lying areas. While some soundside waters continue to rise, conditions will improve throughout the day as the storm moves away.
A Tropical Storm Warning and Storm Surge Warning remain in effect but are expected to be lifted today. For updated weather forecasts, including current watches and warnings, visit weather.gov/mhx.
Damage assessments began this morning and local officials will provide an update regarding reentry to Hatteras Island as soon as possible, once the assessment is completed.
