Hi there. I live in Snow Hill, North Carolina and I am pretty familiar with Morehead City and Atlantic beach. I hope that you plan your vacation in the early part of the summer before we are pounded by possible hurricanes. Although we have been subjected to these storms as early as July, most of the big storms that we have had have occurred in August, September and early October. But let me say if worse comes to worse and you are told to evacuate, don't mess around. Get on out and a long way from the coast. After some of the storms of the past 3 years or so, I have come to believe that no part of North Carolina is totally safe as some of the Florida storms like Jeanne, Charley, Ivan, etc. have done major damage as far inland as Asheville, and that is probably close to 300 miles from the coastline, perhaps even more. If you decide to come during the summer, the humidity runs high as well as the temperatures, high 90's to low to mid 100's with stifing heat index that are miserable as well as dangerous. So watch the weather carefully, do what the locals tell you when it comes to possible storms, and I hope that you have a wonderful time. Oh, and there is a Civil War fort there called Fort Macon. I always go there when I visit the coast. But be careful when you get in there. As the sign says, "The fort was built for war not safety." Enjoy your time with us.
