Is it correct that nuisance is a continuing wrong?

[Law of Torts] – The word ‘nuisance’ itself connotes some continuity.  Temporary or isolated acts do not constitute tort of nuisance.  Therefore, nuisance is considered as a continuing wrong. A nuisance must be a state of affairs, however temporary, and not merely an isolated happening. But there are some exceptions to this. In certain cases, an isolated act may amount to nuisance if the injury is serious.
