Heard a twister moved 2 campers around. Two injuries not life threatening but causing hospitalization yesterday. No updates yet. The OBX is simply a low lying sand bar. It does not take a huge storm to put roads and more under water. Nothing more than beach erosion over the rest of E NC. Hardly more than a thunderstorm at SE NC, one with more than usual rain, not much wind, and far less rain than many expected and has been seen from un-named storms in the past. By the time it traveled over land this far there was not much left to it.
