The tropical storm of Isaias brought heavy rain and wind to the east coast on Tuesday, crashed power lines and left destroyed property.

Isaias was downgraded from a hurricane to a tropical storm after appearing in North Carolina late Monday night, where hundreds of thousands of blackouts were reported. The storm claimed two lives in the Caribbean before moving to the United States, NBC4 New York reported.

Photos from the three-state area and the southeastern United States show how the storm affected the land when it moved up the coast.
