Photos Of The Week: The Outer Banks Takes A Hit from Hurricane Hermine

The Eye of Hurricane Hermine passed right over Manteo on Saturday then made its way up the coast stalling off  the Virginia Capes bringing rough seas, rip tides and gale force winds to the Outer Banks across the Labor Day Weekend.  The shot above was taken Sunday Evening at Duck, North Carolina.

Sunrise September 5th, Labor Day on the beach at Southern Shores, NC.T

The winds shifted to the West by Wednesday as skies cleared and the ocean began to calm down.  Lots of trees were blown down or broken but I didn’t see much structural damage at least along the Northern Banks.  Certainly not as big a hit as from Irene in 2011.   Thanks for the look and have a great week.
