A tornado associated with Hurricane Isaias formed just offshore over the Pamlico River, and then moved over a small waterfront community off of Rest Haven Road east of Bayview. The tornado snapped, twisted, or uprooted numerous trees, the majority of them pine. Several trees fell partially on homes which caused damage to a few roofs, walls, and vehicles. The tornado then continued northward, downing or snapping several trees along Rest Haven Road. Then as the tornado reached NC 99, several more trees were seriously damaged, snapped, or uprooted in the vicinity of a few homes. There was also minor damage to a manufactured home and a small shed had its roof blown off. After passing north of NC 99, the tornado continued to cause damage to the tops of several more trees before dissipating in a large field.
