A Weatherflow weather station at Long Beach Island Surf, New Jersey, 
recently reported a sustained wind of 46 mph (74 km/h) and a gust to 
59 mph (94 km/h).

Around 1053 AM EDT, this same weather observing station measured a 
wind gust of 109 mph (176 km/h), which was associated with a 
tornadic thunderstorm. Doppler weather radar data from Ft. Dix, New 
Jersey, indicated Doppler velocities as high as 112 mph (180 km/h) 
at an altitude of 1,590 above ground level at this same location. 
However, this wind is not considered to be representative of 
Isaias' larger wind field.

(84 km/h) and a gust to 70 mph (113 km/h).
