truth is that interior counties sustain far more damages, typicaly, than the coast.
Goldsboro, Tarboro & Wilson all sustained severe damage from Fran, Dennis & Floyd. Even Raleigh took more of a hit than the Coast.
Heck, Hugo, in 1989, did half a billion dollars of damage in the Charlotte area.
Dennis did virtually nothing at the coast; but flooded out Rocky Mount.
Remember Ivan in 2004? Did not even come ashore on the NC coast. Came in the Gulf in Alabama and came right up the backside of NC where it did significant damage in Asheville.
But not to worry. Bobblehead is in charge. That's the pseudo name for the Commissioner when he stands behind the Governor at a Press Conference and bobs his head up and down.
