Trop­i­cal Storm Isa­ias raced up the East Coast of the United States on Tues­day, gen­er­at­ing tor­na­does and knock­ing out power, and a twister in North Carolina killed at least one per­son when it oblit­er­ated a mo­bile home park.

The storm threat­ened flash flood­ing in ur­ban ar­eas such as Philadel­phia and could gen­er­ate tor­na­does through­out the North­east.

The centre of the storm moved across Mary­land and was about 70 miles (110 km) south­west of Philadel­phia, the Na­tional Hur­ri­cane Cen­ter said.

Pack­ing max­i­mum sus­tained winds of 70 miles per hour (110 km/h), Isa­ias was mov­ing north-north­west at 35 mph (56 km/h).
