We fared well at Oak Island. There is a lot of standing rainwater and some dune overwash, with plenty of smaller tree limbs down, but basically pretty good. I have been out this morning checking on some friend's houses and all did well. Ocean Crest Pier appears to have done well too. I didn't go as far as Oak Island Pier. The waves are gone and the rain has slowed, but the wind is still at about 30 to 40, with stronger gusts. A pic of OCP this A.M. is attached. Thanks for everyone's concern. I hope the folks farther up the coast weather it as well, but I'm afraid they won't.
