Aug 4 – Hurricane Isaias knocked out power to more than 2.8 million homes and businesses from New York to North Carolina on Tuesday, according to electric companies. Isaias, now a tropical storm, crashed into North Carolina overnight and is currently centered near the Pennsylvania-New Jersey border. Meteorologists expect the storm to continue moving north toward Canada for the rest of the day. Utilities along the path in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and New England have told customers to expect more outages. Power companies in North Carolina, Virginia and Maryland, meanwhile, have started restoring service to some customers after the storm moved on from their service areas.
