WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Hurricane Arthur dumped over 4 inches of rain in some coastal locations in southeastern NC. Wind gusts of 71 mph were reported in at least one beach location, but the WWAY viewing area managed to avoid a direct landfall. Residents of the Outer Banks were not so lucky, as Arthur made landfall as a Category 2 hurricane just near Cape Lookout.

In the Duplin County community of Rose Hill, a confirmed tornado caused damage to homes and automobiles. Thankfully, no major injuries or fatalities were reported.

Quiet weather returns for the July 4th weekend, although the risk of rip currents will remain elevated for a few days.

NOW THAT SOUNDS YANKEE, “BUCKS”, I did that on purpose, wanted to make you feel part of this stupid debate. Especially, the person who used the term “Jesus folks”, YOU REALLY GAVE YOURSELF AWAY!!!!! In this part of the country, we are thanking Jesus for FREE salvation, NOT the power companies; ps.… Read more »

What is Duke going to do to be “more prepared”? Outlaw wind and gravity? Suspend the laws of physics concerning electricity? If something hits a line in tropical storm conditions it is going to cause an outage. If Duke has a slow response once the storm is over, you have an argument. However, until then, shut up you entitled fool.
