UPDATE: hurricane matthew didn’t miss the obx
Last minute change in path brought Matthew to the OBX
Hurricane Matthew was the least predictable hurricane we’ve tracked in a long time and just when the OBX thought we had a pass, we were hit with a storm full of power, fury and rain the likes of which many have never seen here. Thankfully, we haven’t heard of any local loss of life, but many homes and businesses have a load of cleanup to do. Visitors are being allowed back on the northern banks today but restrictions continue on Hatteras Island. OBXsurfinfo.com has put together this great gallery of images of what this storm and its aftermath is looking like.
“Hurricane Matthew was in complete control and nobody could predict it’s path. Many were worried and for good reason. This storm has brought significant damage to the Outer Banks but not like you would think. Instead of storm surges on the oceanfront or soundside neighborhoods, the real story lies in communities in-between the highways and in surrounding communities. Many businesses & homes are under water and it’s all due to the already saturated ground water we’ve had from recent rainfall.”
