Hurricane Isabel has been downgraded to a tropical depression as it moves towards Canada, but not before causing significant damage.

Officials on the Outer Banks of North Carolina estimate Hurricane Isabel caused $545 million in damage. Beach homes were knocked off pilings, fishing piers were smashed, and the lone highway that links the barrier islands has impassible stretches.

The storm is also being blamed for at least 17 deaths, mostly due to flooding in Virginia, and from falling trees or car accidents. More than 5.5 million homes and businesses are without power Friday afternoon. Thousands are still in evacuation shelters.
