matthew + obx = a sigh of relief
OBX sighs in relief as Matthew (hopefully) steers clear
As the projected path of Hurricane Matthew takes ever stranger twists and turns, the Outer Banks has apparently moved out of the danger zone. There will still be local effects from the monster storm as Kip Tabb writing for the North Beach Sun reports, but from Ocracoke to Carova, there are mainly giant sighs of relief. Best wishes, prayers and good thoughts for everyone still in this big storm’s path.
“It looks as though Hurricane Matthew is going to curve away from the coast and head out to sea, which for everyone on the Outer Banks is a relief.
We’ll still feel the effects—are feeling the effects. The beach road in Kitty Hawk by Black Pelican is closed again as high seas from the storm pound the coast and crews are out there trying to stem the tide with sand.
Mike Dianna had to cancel the Mustang Music Festival this year, which is a bummer! He had an outstanding lineup ready to go and the festival has become a highlight of the fall music scene. It was a painful decision, but it was the right one—and that gets to the heart of the effects from Matthew.”
