Pier At Atlantic Beach Survives Earl

The Sheraton Atlantic Beach Pier may not be open for Labor Day Weekend, but it survived Hurricane Earl.

Hurricanes and tropical storms become major threats to the few remaining piers along the North Carolina Coast every time they near it. The Sheraton Pier looked to be in danger of not surviving Hurricane Earl Thursday when one of the pilings collapsed.

However, WITN's Hilary Magacs reported Friday morning that the pier is still standing as Earl moves away from the coast of North Carolina.

Because of the damage to the piling during the hurricane, it's not clear if the pier will be closed for the time being.
