isabelle didnt do too much damage here locally. It did however wipe out most of Hwy 10 on Ocracoke and Hatteras Islands.
Fran sent 6 trees through my moms house ( I was still living there) all trees went through the roof and landed on ALL of our beds. Fortunately, mom had enough foresight to make us all cram into the guest room downstairs. Water damage everywhere- gorgeous wooden privacy fence destroyed. Ironically, two trees fell right on the deck, but no damage to that- go figure! not on broken railing even! lol
She basically got a whole new house after all was said and done (though it took some time), but ended up selling a couple of years after that.
because of Fran, my husband and I (who were dating at the time, and I had JUST graduated high school) won't buy a house surrounded with pines. the roots stay, and the tops snap! Pines are fine as long as not in crashing distance of the house!
