Hurricane Sandy blasted our beaches, chewing up big chunks of the North Carolina coast, and sunk a historic ship. Then, she turned north, roaring into Virginia.
Sandy flooded beach towns and the storm started the anticipated collision with a cold front, dumping snow in the mountains.
The storm kept churning north into New Jersey. In the cold and rain and dead of night, Sandy is supposed to slam into the Jersey shore at full force.
Hurricane Sandy side-swiped our coast and it's easy to think that since we weren't hit head on that North Carolina got off easy. But, the storm has been eating away at our coastline for the better part of 24 hours.
Ask residents at the coast and they'll tell you it's the second wave of a storm that worries them more. The second wave of a hurricane is hitting the Outerbanks now, even though the center of the storm is well north of here.
The major concern is flooding on the side of the Sound. At the end of a storm, water comes rushing back towards the ocean, which could lead to major flooding.
