No Internet on the island, so a friend is posting this. Power is off. Thirty utility poles down. Highest recorded wind gust was 99 MPH. Minor damage to boats, tree limbs down. Everyone is fine, no tidal flooding. Philip will post as soon as possible. Many thanks for your good wishes. Hope everyone is safe, sound and dry.


  1. Thanks for posting. The absence of flooding is a very good thing.

    Thanks for the update. News outlets in the Piedmont seem to think the Outer Banks does not include Ocracoke! News from/about Kitty Hawk, Hatteras, then south to Emerald Isle, etc.

  6. So glad there was not flooding, thoughts with you all.
