Very interesting studies.

Tropical Storm Fay, which hit Florida in 2008 is a good example of this. After making landfall, it formed an eye-like feature and almost strengthened into a hurricane. It's peak intensity was achieved over land.

Some speculate it obtained some of this energy from Lake Okeechobee.

Is a flat area the requirement?

I seem to recall hearing that that is the reason Hurricane Fran caused so much damage in central North Carolina when it hit in 1996. Wind downed trees where I live, over 100 miles from the ocean. The eye lasted a long time, too.
But I'm having trouble reading the article on my phone, so I may be repeating stuff mentioned there.

I imagine it gained a lot of strength from the sounds. Eastern NC is also very swampy and many ponds and lakes are there so that and wet soils could have helped it alot.

Growing up in southeastern VA, Hampton Roads, we were always told worse case scenario would be a storm coming up through the NC sounds at just the right angle, with the storm center going just sw of Norfolk. This would be because the sounds are a larger body of warmer waters and relatively flat throughout. Most storms that come through this area are already trying to turn out to sea or head more inland.

Yeah generally its rare for a storm to hit any where north of hatteras, mainly due to cold upwelling, and the way NC just juts out into the sea. I imagine you are right, the worst hurricane scenario for you guys would be a hurricane grazing along the sounds gaining strength and making landfall in the tidewater region. The shallow hot water of the sounds in summer is perfect energy for storms.
