Here on Ocracoke Island life is beginning to return to normal. Visitors are returning, businesses are reopening, and residents are adjusting to traveling by way of Swan Quarter and Cedar Island for routine off-island trips.
We are also well aware of the destruction, devastation, and disruptions caused by storms Irene and Lee all along the east coast, fires in Texas, and other natural disasters elsewhere. Our hearts go out to the people who have lost family and friends, houses, possessions, and income because of these catastrophic events.
In the past, when Ocracoke has been hit hard by hurricanes, the American Red Cross has always been quick to respond with aid. They are helping victims in the northeast and elsewhere now. If you would like to donate please click here. Recipients of your generosity will be very grateful. Thank you.
