    surfchex.com/cams/hatteras-web-cam/ Its about 1 hour from low tide at Hatteras on the outer banks, next to ocecokey Island, the waves arent leaving any dry sand and starting to run up the sandbanks. Once the tide turns and the surge starts properly, I expect the swimming pool to the left to disappear. Most frequent waves The most frequent wave height will be about half the height of the significant wave. 18.4 ft Significant height About 14% of waves will be higher than the significant wave height (about 1 in every 7 waves). 36.7 ft Maximum waves It is normal to expect a wave of twice the height of the significant wave about 3 times in 24 hours. 73.4 ft This means at this moment you need to be prepared for a wave of 73.4 ft before heading out on the water.

    http://surfchex.com/cams/hatteras-web-cam/ if this camera gets inundated, you know that OcraCokey is not Okeydokey

    some of the webcams over there are stunning, then you think that most of those beaches are protected by an outer layer of islands - and think - what happens when the big waves come through ...there will be many fatalities I fear, as so many have no sense of danger, fear or common sense in this new instant gratification world.

    So would I, but I wouldnt do it on that island.... I "drove|" the length of it on google maps earlier, the whole lot could easily get inundated, there is NO high ground, no decent shelter and NOWHERE too run to.

    its been interesting watching the downtown Wilmington camera in the last few days, from Monday with many strolling people on the boardwalks, lots of boats, yesterday, with boats clearing out both ways, the restaurant owner still open but taking down his canopies.... to today, few walkers, hardly any boats, restaurant shut - although still people coming along thinking it will be open - and 2 kayakers paddling down the calm river.

    well if they watched a Mike Theiss video of Katrina they may well be trying to get off the island now...

    surfchex.com/cams/hatteras-web-cam/ The swells are certainly picking up at Hatteras point - the next island to the Ocracoke Island stayers..

    Hurricane Helene

    and there could be a 2nd tropical depression in swiftly following it too...

    They might be mad but the storm surge should only be 1 to 3 feet above normal there as there is a large expanse of water behind it . Levels will be far worse on the mainland where water will be pushed up estuaries and rivers which will be swollen with flood water at the same time. Places such as Washington, New Bern and Greensville will se far more affected by water, ocracoke will just be smashed by the winds.....

    Indeed, it is incorrect, I meant TO Florence, the aircraft was 104 miles offshore when I posted. Indeed there is choice, my comment referred to the fact that brave people will always risk their lives to save people who make the choice to stay if they call 911
