2010: Perdue: Earl Left No Major Damage Or Injuries

North Carolina Governor Beverly Perdue says the state's Outer Banks appear to have avoided serious damage or injuries as Hurricane Earl blew past.

Gov. Beverly Perdue said Friday that reports from the barrier islands brushed by Earl overnight offered nothing but good news by daybreak.

She said survey teams would fan out to check whether erosion from the waves churned up by the storm caused any property damage between the Oregon Inlet and the Virginia border. Communities there include Kitty Hawk, Corolla and Duck.

Perdue says the beaches and businesses south of Hatteras and Ocracoke islands are open.

Lynwood Roberson with the American Red Cross says just over 200 people stayed in shelters Thursday night.

    First two commenters: everything's the President's fault, right?!? And Gov. Perdue's too. Yeah, right. Although I'm up north now, we own houses in Hatteras and Frisco and have local friends of many decades' duration. I'm grateful that our friends are fine, damage was minor overall, and that the storm turned an extra couple of degrees out to sea. (Insert big sigh of relief here.)
