Early start to Hurricane Season not worrying beach visitors


OAK ISLAND, NC (WWAY) -- With the first tropical storm already off the east coast, many say the 2012 Hurricane Season is starting early, but they're not worried about it.

Beachgoers on Oak Island say they are going to enjoy the nice weather while it lasts and worry about storms and hurricanes later when they are a bigger threat.

"It's not near us yet. We go through hurricanes all the time. If it gets closer, preparation's a good idea, but I'm not worried," Shannon Gordon said.

Residents say they tend to have supplies available, but that is because they live on the island, not because they are worried about the weather.
