Hurricane Isabel was the costliest and deadliest hurricane of the 2003 season, claiming lives and causing extensive damage and flooding across North Carolina and Virginia.
As a Category 2 storm, Isabel made landfall along the Outer Banks of North Carolina on Sept. 18, 2003. The storm killed 17 people and caused more than $3 billion in damage.
"Isabel is considered one of the most significant tropical cyclones to affect northeast North Carolina, east central Virginia, and the Chesapeake and Potomac regions since Hurricane Hazel in 1954 and the Chesapeake-Potomac Hurricane of 1933," according to NOAA.
