Dorian NOAA imagery pairs: Location 4

Detailed Description

Core Banks within Cape Lookout National Seashore was heavily impacted by waves and surge from Hurricane Dorian. The cuts seen in the island were driven by surge exiting Core Sound as Hurricane Dorian’s winds rapidly changed direction.  The predicted probability of inundation for this location was 50%. These predictions are made for surge and waves coming from the ocean, and do not account for processing coming from the sound side of the island.
