RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Gov. Roy Cooper said at least one person is dead and several others injured Tuesday morning in the aftermath of Hurricane Isaias.

During an interview on Good Morning America, Cooper said several tornadoes spun off of Isaias as it moved through the state.

Cooper said a tornado hit a trailer park in Bertie County when he mentioned the fatality and injuries.

Bertie County officials are urging the public to exercise caution if they are near the Morning Road area of Windsor.

“We are asking that our community allow us time to gather and properly verify more information from the various law enforcement agencies and first responders still working to secure the area,” county officials said.

Isaias made landfall on Ocean Isle Beach at 11:10 p.m. Monday as a Category 1 hurricane.

It quickly moved north through the state, leaving more than 350,000 customers without power.
