The Frisco Pier on Hatteras Island has not escaped Hurricane Earl's strong seas.
A viewer sent us a photo of the pier earlier tonight, and we're now told the pier may have collapsed.
We'll be finding that out as soon as day breaks and conditions improve, and we can check it out.
The pier was heavily damaged during Hurricane Isabel in 2003.
