Here are a few photos I took recently. As of late this afternoon there was still a lot of standing water in the village. Although power has been restored, regular ferry service has not yet resumed. Please see out last post for the latest information about ferries. Check back frequently for future Advisories.

Matthew was a serious hurricane that brought quite a lot of flooding to Ocracoke. A number of island homes and business had several inches of tide water in lower floors. Quite a few automobiles were also flooded. Damage from wind was generally minimal. However, it will be a while before those affected will fully recover.

    Holy cow! Sunset is the street where the house I rented is! Guess it won't be ready this week.(?) It's ground level, and I fear it got flooded pretty good. Happy power is back on for the folks there!
