A tornado associated with Hurricane Isaias formed just offshore in the Neuse River, and then moved over a small waterfront community in Kennel Beach, with one large pine tree snapped that fell on a home along Pine Road. The tornado produced additional tree damage along Live Oak Road and Pecan Lane as it moved NNW towards swamps and forested lands. Another area of snapped pine trees was found along a rural logging road off South Goose Creek Road. The tornado then continued NW, producing an area of enhanced tree damage to hardwoods and softwoods along the western end of Goose Creed Road in Grantsboro. It should be noted that the tornado likely lifted and descended during its path through western Pamlico County before dissipating over swampy areas of Cypress Creek upstream of Goose Creek. No injuries or fatalities were observed with this tornado.
