(Photo Gallery) Hurricane Matthew Dumps Massive Rain on the Outer Banks
Hurricane Matthew was in complete control and nobody could predict its 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. The usual hurricane news is about storms that impact our beaches or soundside communities but this one is unusual in its own right. Hurricane Matthew has hit us where we least expected it. Below are some photos grabbed from social media showing Hurricane Matthew’s destruction.
