Photo Gallery: “Hurricane Hermine Finally Delivers”
After Hurricane Hermine punched through Florida, it downgraded to a tropical storm packing winds around 50-70mph, then ripped through the Outer Banks Friday night into Saturday evening, leaving a few places flooded and about a million pine cones misplaced. For the most part, minimal damage was done on the Outer Banks here in town. Some hotel/restaurant signs were shattered, some shingles missing, a couple of fences blown over and miscellaneous debris thrown about. It could’ve been much worse. Luckily, now that the storm has passed, there’s plenty of solid ground swell left over, the water temp is still mid 70’s, the wind is perfect and just about every sandbar in town is breaking. The dominant wave height this morning was around 6′ @ 11.4 seconds. Here’s a few shots taken in Kill Devil Hills from this morning’s session. Photographer: Brent Nultemeier
