Comms from Oriental is very spotty at the moment. Powehas been out since 10:30 last night and cell towers are probably out of backup power by now. I have a report of boats moored behind the bridge breaking loose and being lost
. River Dunes reported 95 mph but no boat damage. Town dock
has not updated since 8:28, which was before the eye wall hit. The surge was only 4 inches from the Isabel level at that time. The back side of the eye wall is over the area at the moment, but that should blow the water
out. .... Town Dock
just updated, surge was 9.5 feet now down to 5.5 ft. Some afternoon thunderstorm. My boat is in River Dunes. Good luck to everyone with boats in the path of this one. Forum rules prevent me from sharing my opinion on the intelligence of someone suggesting minimal preparation for this one.
