There is a very good article about hurricanes in the Wilmington Star newspaper. Although the focus is on the 1999 storm Hurricane Floyd, it brings up many salient points.
Storms differ from each other, Storm category doesn't necessarily equal destruction and inland (not coastal) flooding problems.

Thanks Bill, that was a good article.

What hit the coast this weekend, was it a stealth tropical depression? It sure felt like it on Sunday with high winds, rough surf and bands of rain!

I was driving back from Pamlico County to Carteret County last night. I was downtown Havelock at around 9PM-All the power was out. Then-Poof! All the power popped backed on.
The rain was thick and the lightning bright. There was a big accident at the interesection of HWY. 24 and 70 by the time I reached it last night.
School was delayed 2 hours this morning.

A very interesting book on NC's hurricane history is, well, North Carolina's Hurricane History, which any local bookstore should have. The 2000 edition (I have the older one, published before Fran and Floyd) should cover at least through Floyd, which was 10 years ago next week.

Actually we have to be more definite when describing the coast, as the Coast of NC is very vast.
We saw nothing of this storm in Brunswick or New Hanover, all sunshine here, how odd.
