"IF" the forecast is right we will take a direct hit on OBX. We have a long standing rule, Cat 2 we hunker down, Cat 3 we leave. Looks like a Cat 2 or maybe less so we stay because it may take 2 weeks to get back on the island if the road is cut. With Irene we had 5 feet of water in the yard but the house is up almost 6 feet, still had minor damage so we need to be here. All the tourists have left so things are nice and quiet for a change.
Life in paradise.......

Wrong forum or not, thoughts are with you. My family owns property at Kure Beach, and this could be the second direct hit there in as many years - Florence was just a Cat 1 by landfall last year, but as you know it stalled and did considerable damage to the entire region and killed dozens. Stay safe.

Stay safe 'Bum! I love the OBX. We have plenty of beaches up here but they have so many damn rules. We've stayed in Avon a few times, but more often we stay in Hatteras Village.

Hatteras Island power restored late Saturday, limited access. Ocracoke is a disaster. We are safe but I have to say this is the strongest cat 1 I have seen. Water came in from dry to 5 feet in about 15 minutes. Rethinking my exit strategy, more after we dig out.
