Storm Isaias batters U.S. east coast

Added On August 5, 2020

The storm left two people dead in North Carolina and two others dead in Maryland and New York City. More than 2.2 million people were reportedly without power along the East Coast, including 1.3 million in New Jersey. The U.S. National Hurricane Center expects strong and damaging winds to continue to spread northward across the New York City metropolitan area, including eastern Long Island and southern New England, that could knock down trees and power lines.
