Before and after images of coastal change caused by Dorian in NC

Before and after images of coastal change in Cape Lookout National Seashore caused by Hurricane Dorian.

Detailed Description

The Longpoint Cabin Camp in Cape Lookout National Seashore was heavily impacted by Hurricane Dorian’s waves and surge. All of the cabins were damaged and one pavilion is gone altogether. The area is now inaccessible  due to the cut from the harbor to the cabins. These cuts were likely formed when surge flowed over the island from the sound side. The dunes in front of the cabins are still intact, indicating that waves and surge from the ocean did not reach the top of the dunes. Photos by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
