Tropical Storm Isaias spawned tornadoes and dumped heavy rain as it roared up the East Coast on Tuesday morning after making landfall as a hurricane Monday night near Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina.

At least one of the tornadoes killed a person in Bertie County, North Carolina, Gov. Roy Cooper confirmed Tuesday morning. Other tornadoes were confirmed in Virginia and Maryland, the National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center said.

What was once Hurricane Isaias was downgraded to a tropical storm, though it still packed winds of 70 mph as of Tuesday morning.

The National Hurricane Center said in its 8 a.m. ET advisory Tuesday that tornadoes are most likely through midday from southeast Virginia to New Jersey.
