WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Members of the U.S. Coast Guard saw some damage from the sky Friday morning at the Outer Banks. Afterwards, they gathered in Downtown Wilmington to talk about what they saw.

Rear Admiral Stephen P. Metruck says that some locations were clearly hit harder than others including several mobile home parks. He said that the Coast Guard is working to get Ferries and other transportation up and running as soon as possible, but still urged people to remain cautious.

“And the main thought that comes up, is the message that has been repeated, is that people should still exercise caution when on the beach,” He said. “Because obviously the conditions are still there. And there were lots of people on the beach immediately, which means that the storm was fast moving.”

Crews are continuing to assess the situation and damage along the coast and help any who need it, but overall there is not much significant damage.
