Emerald Isle Says No Signifigant Issues From Sandy

Sandy continues on a path away from Emerald Isle, and should completely clear that area later tonight or Monday.

Emerald Isle has experienced only relatively minor impacts from Sandy. There does not appear to be any visible damage to homes or structures. Rainfall totals are in the 2 - 3 inch range (depending on your location in Emerald Isle) and the maximum gusts recorded at Fire Stations 1 and 2 were 46 mph and 43 mph, respectively.

Water levels remain high in Bogue Sound, with water reaching the decking of most docks, however, no widespread dock damage has been observed. Beach strand observations at 6 locations did not reveal any significant dune erosion, however, the flat beach profile is flattened to some degree. A more comprehensive assessment of the beach strand will be made on Monday or Tuesday when surf conditions return to normal.
