Hurricane Dennis hit seven years ago Monday in Eastern Carolina, and Tuesday is the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, a storm which scientists say could be the worst of our time. So could a hurricane with the magnitude of Katrina hit Eastern Carolina? Or has it already? When Hurricane Floyd slammed into our coastline, its waters forced thousands of residents out of their homes and caused unprecedented damage, some calling it the flood of the century. Could this mean Floyd may have been the worst hurricane of our time in the state? But Meteorologist Jamie Arnold says there's always room for the worst case scenario. One that has similarities of Floyd in terms of flooding, a storm surge like Isabel and winds like Hazel all combined, in the form of a category four hurricane.
