Well, Hurricane Irene has come and gone, but her aftermath is still hanging around. I thought I’d share a few pictures that were sent to me from my sister and her FIANCE (I’ll share that story soon…). Here’s the rundown of my eastern contacts. First off, John and I lived there for 4 years for college, and then he lived near the NC/SC border around Southport, NC for a few years after college. My sister is in Greenville, NC, her fiance, Tommy, lives in Swansboro (right where Irene made landfall), and Tommy’s parents are in Nags Head, NC.
Downtown Greenville, NC

Those two previous pics were Tommy’s parents backyard.
This is standing in Tommy’s Parent’s front yard. Their entire first floor of their house is flooded (it was finished in, unlike most beach houses that you park under the house).
Highway 12, Right near Rodanthe, NC. All residents of Hatteras Island can only access the “mainland” by private boat or emergency ferry until the road is fixed. The inlet  was not there Friday before Irene hit.
Another view of the Highway 12 damage in Rodanthe, NC.

Please keep Eastern NC and the entire East Coast in your prayers as they rebuild. The flooding damages are substantial for most and power is still out for thousands.


  1. sorry to hear of the damage that occurred to your sister's in-laws.

    Those photos give provide a glance into the horrible damage, for sure.

  2. Oh my goodness - I haven't heard from my mom since last night - they are in Rocky Mount and I know the power is still out.
