A strong cold front moved through Eastern NC during the day. Ahead of this front, a powerful line of severe thunderstorms produced widespread strong damaging wind gusts, ranging from 60 to 70 mph, both just ahead of, and along, this line of showers and storms. Some localized gusts to at or above 80 mph were recorded on the Outer Banks.

October 11, 2018

Hurricane Michael was the third-most intense hurricane to make landfall in the United States, behind only the 1935 Labor Day Hurricane and Hurricane Camille in 1969. The storm made landfall near Mexico Beach, Florida as a Category 4 storm on October 10, 2018, with top winds of 155 mph and a central pressure of 919 mb. Once inland, Michael weakened rapidly and was a Tropical Storm on October 11 as it moved across inland portions of North Carolina before exiting the coast along the Delmarva Peninsula early on October 12, 2018. ||As Michael passed through North Carolina, thousands were left without power. Wind gusts as high as 74 mph were observed in Kitty Hawk. Sporadic tree damage along with minor shingle damage was observed across the northern Outer Banks. The main impact in eastern North Carolina from Michael was surge flooding on the northern Outer Banks. Water levels were 2 to 4 feet above ground level on the sound side north of Avon. Hardest hit areas included Manteo, Kitty Hawk, and Kill Devil Hills.

September 13, 2018

Hurricane Florence was a long-lived Cape Verde hurricane and the wettest tropical cyclone on record in the Carolinas. The sixth named storm, third hurricane, and the first major hurricane of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season, Florence originated from a strong tropical wave that emerged off the west coast of Africa on August 30, 2018. Florence became a tropical depression near Cape Verde on August 31 and progressed west-northwest, becoming a Tropical Storm on September 1. Florence strengthened rapidly on September 4���5, becoming a Category 4 storm on the Saffir-Simpson wind scale with maximum sustained winds of 130 mph. Florence weakened to a tropical storm by September 7, but the system regained hurricane strength on September 9 and major hurricane status with winds of 140 mph on September 10. However, increasing wind shear caused the storm's winds to gradually weaken over the next few days. However, the storm's wind field continued to grow. By the evening of September 13, Florence had been downgraded to a Category 1 hurricane. Hurricane Florence made landfall near Wrightsville Beach early on Saturday September 15, and weakened further as it slowly moved inland.||Florence produced extensive wind damage along the North Carolina coast from Cape Lookout, across Carteret, Onslow, Pender and New Hanover counties. Thousands of downed trees caused widespread power outages to nearly all of eastern North Carolina. The historic legacy of Hurricane Florence will be record breaking storm surge of 9 to 13 feet and widespread devastating rainfall of 20 to 30 inches, locally up to 36 inches, which produced catastrophic and life-threatening flooding. The hardest hit areas included New Bern, Newport, Belhaven, Oriental, North Topsail Beach and Jacksonville, along with Downeast Carteret County, or basically south of a line from Kinston to Cedar Island. A storm total rainfall of 34.00 inches was reported in Swansboro, while the NWS office in Newport recorded 25.20 inches. Wind gusts of 106 mph were reported at Cape Lookout with 105 mph at Fort Macon.

September 2, 2016

Hurricane Hermine made landfall in the Big Bend area of Florida during the early morning hours on September 2nd, and moved northeast along the Southeastern United States states on the 2nd. Hermine weakened slightly to Tropical Storm strength and crossed through Eastern North Carolina during the late evening on September 2nd, and exited off the North Carolina coast near Duck during the morning of September 3rd. The lowest pressure of 994.3 mb was measured on 03/0629 UTC at a mesonet site located at Fort Macon in Carteret county. Highest official winds were measured at the Duck tide gauge DUKN7 where sustained speeds of 71 mph with gusts to 84 mph occurred between 1447 and 1454 UTC on the 3rd. These strong winds led to sporadic power outages across eastern North Carolina. Official Storm surge flooding of 2 to 4 feet above ground level occurred along much of the coast. The highest surge of 3 to 4 feet was observed on the sound side of the Outer Banks on the morning of the 3rd as strong north winds developed on the backside of Hermine as it passed offshore. Preliminary damage from storm surge was estimated at 5.5 million dollars with the vast majority of this occurring across Outer Banks Dare County. Rain-bands associated with Hermine produced two EF1 tornadoes and one EF0 tornado that led to around 30 thousand in property damage. Bands of heavy rain associated with Hermine produced rainfall totals of 4 to 8 inches over most of the region, with the highest amounts near the coast. This heavy rain produced widespread poor drainage flooding with a few reports of flash flooding.

July 3, 2014

Hurricane Arthur is the earliest hurricane to hit North Carolina in a season since records began in 1851. The storm intensified, and by late on the evening of July 3, the system attained its peak winds of 100 mph as a Category 2 hurricane on the Saffir���Simpson hurricane wind scale. Arthur made landfall at 11:15 pm EDT July 3, over Shackleford Banks, between Cape Lookout and Beaufort, and intensified slightly further. The minimum official pressure of 974.9 millibars or 28.79 inches/mercury was measured on 04/0812 UTC at the Oregon Inlet tide gauge, ORIN7. Highest official winds were registered at Cape Lookout C-MAN station, CLKN7, where maximum sustained winds of 67 knots or 77 mph were recorded at 04/0300 UTC. Peak wind gusts of 88 knots or 101 mph were recorded there as well on 04/0230 UTC. Widespread power outages were reported throughout coastal eastern North Carolina. Official storm surge flooding from 4 to 5 feet above MLLW was observed over the central and northern Outer Banks with portions of NC Highway 12 and U.S. Highway 64 closed in Dare County. The highest official surge 4.5 feet MLLW was reported at Oregon Inlet at 04/1024 UTC. Storm surge value was measured at 7.21 ft MSL by a NWS damage survey team at Rodanthe on Outer Banks Dare County. Arthur produced two destructive EF1 tornadoes, during the evening on July 3rd, which caused an estimated 176 thousand dollars in property damage. Storm surge and hurricane force winds caused an estimated 2.17 million dollars in damages in Dare County, 1.5 million due to storm surge flooding, and 0.67 million dollars in estimated damages due to wind. Damages elsewhere were minimal and not reported. Storm total rainfall averaged between 1.3 to 7.21 inches, highest along the Dare Co. Outer Banks. Heavy rainfall resulted in minor freshwater flooding across the Eastern NC inland Coastal Plains counties and coastal counties from Carteret County on the southern coast through Dare County on the Outer Banks. There were no reported injuries or fatalities.
