Oh my word. What's the status on the Outer Banks? Is Ocracoke still there?

Elise Felman and her son, Josh, 11, of Leonardtown, Md. navigate a pier that starts to break up from the force of waves stirred up by Hurricane Isabel Thursday. Josh wanted to experience the storm to receive extra credit for school.

Yes, Okracoke is still there. There was a complete evacuation. Even the old salters left.
They fared well enough, time tested as they are... Generators are up. 50 power poles out to sea. The mainland, particularly Swan Quarter, saw high water. Long Distance power transmission lines were hit, leaving with them without power for many days to come. Here on the other side of the Pungo, our power returned, thanks to western NC crews, yesterday pm.
