Hurricane Irene Outer Banks warning, 6 to 11 feet surge, Ocean Sound and Rain Water, Beach road and highway 158 will be under water

Hurricane Irene Outer Banks warning, 6 to 11 feet surge, Ocean Sound and Rain Water, Beach road and highway 158 will be under water

Hurricane Irene is headed straight for the Outer Banks of NC. The populated areas there are Nags Head, Kill Devil Hills, Kitty Hawk, Duck and Corolla. I have been there many times during the past 15 years and I know the area well. Some stretches of this area, surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and large sounds are approximately 1 and a half miles wide. None of this stretch is very wide.

I just checked the latest storm surge data from The Weather Channel. They are predicting a 6 to 11 foot storm surge for this area. I next went to Google Earth to confirm my memory of the elevations. I chose a spot in front of the Wright Brothers Memorial in Kill Devil Hills. I verified the elevation of the beach road, one block back from the ocean, and Highway 158 which runs parallel to the ocean several blocks from the ocean. Here are the elevations.

Beach Road    3 feet

Highway 158   6 feet

As you can see, a 11 foot storm surge will cover these roads. If you are in a cottage between highway 158 and the ocean, you could easily be in jeopardy. One large wave could wipe out your dwelling.

I have a family member at the Outer Banks and a friend who has a family member there indicated they are going to ride it out. I hear comments from people that they have always weathered the storms. This is a once in a lifetime event. You have never experienced a hurricane like this one going directly over the Outer Banks.

Kill Devil Hills is enacting a 10PM curfew beginning tonight until whenever.

Take this storm seriously!

  1. CW,

    Is the Eye of Irene east or west of the outer banks of NC?

    Free Speech.
    They are still not certain about the eye.
    I just put up another article about the Outer Banks.

  4. Thanks CW.

    If the eye is west of the outer banks they will get a double whammy: Hurricane Force Winds and maximum storm surge. Anyone east of the eye should evacuate. Better safe than sorry.

  5. North Carolina is fortunate that the coastal areas except for Wilmington are not heavily populated. They Northeast is not so fortunate.

  6. Can bo evacuate all the demRats from New York City before Irene hits? I don’t think so. And remember Irene is just the first of the 8 Hurricanes predicted to hit the East Coast.

  7. I lived in fla for fifteen years. Ya gotta get away from the water. The winds won’t kill you unless it’s a strong hurricane. But you gotta get away from the water.

    Right U R!

    During Hurricane Katrina, the demRats nagan & blanco failed to evacuate New Orleans. Unless bo can evacuate New York City, he will be responsible for a catastrophe that will be far greater than Katrina.

  10. bloomberg is shutting down the subways in NYC at 12 noon on Saturday.

    The demRats will have no way out.

  11. Remember Irene is just the first of the 8 Hurricanes predicted for the Atlantic Coast.

  12. Joe Bastardi of WeatherBell.com on Hannity said that another storm is headed for the East Coast after Irene.

    “Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.), an offical candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, slammed the US’s role in the downfall of Muammar

    RON PAUL IS BEING MARGINALIZED AND RIDICULED BY TIME MAGAZINE BECAUSE HE WANTS TO STOP THE SERIAL CRIMINALS IN WASHINGTON D.C. FROM BEING ABLE TO COMMIT THEIR COMPLETELY LAWLESS & UNCONSTITUTIONAL DAILY SERIAL HIGH CRIMES, DAILY LIES, DAILY GRAND THEFTS & LOOTINGS OF OUR USA TREASURY; STOP THEIR DAILY FELONIES, & STOP THEIR DAILY HIGH TREASONS.

    RON PAUL GREATLY WANTS TO FOREVER STOP & END THE ILLEGAL & UNCONSTITUTIONAL USURPATION OF UNCONSTITUTIONAL POWERS THAT THE COMPLETELY CORRUPT USA FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS STOLEN FROM THE USA PEOPLE’S CIVIL RIGHTS, FREEDOMS, AND LIBERTIES.

    RON PAUL WANTS TO AUDIT & END THE FEDERAL RESERVE & END EVERY KIND OF FEDERAL USURPATION OF THE USA GOVERNMENT, & MAKE THE USA GOVERNMENT BE AUDITED FROM A TO Z & BECOME REDUCED IN SIZE. RON PAUL WANTS TO MAKE THE USA GOVERNMENT BECOME 100% LEGALLY ACCOUNTABLE TO WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, & TO RESTORE OUR USA CONSTITUTIONAL FREEDOMS, CIVIL RIGHTS, & LIBERTIES!

    THIS IS WHY THE IMMORAL, DESPICABLE, & DISGUSTING SERIAL CRIMINALS IN WASHINGTON D.C. ARE MARGINALIZING AND RIDICULING HIM. RON PAUL KNOWS THEIR GAMES, SEES THEIR CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES, & HE REFUSES TO JOIN THEM, & WALK & DANCE TO THEIR INSANE MUSIC & DRUM BEATS THAT ARE LEADING THEM, THE USA, & WE THE PEOPLE TO DESTRUCTION & TO OUR END AS A SOVEREIGN NATION UNLESS THESE SERIAL CRIMINALS IN WASHINGTON D.C. ARE STOPPED!!
    RON PAUL IS A SERIOUS THREAT TO THEM, AND THEY KNOW IT. RON PAUL WILL STOP & END THEIR CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES WITH HIS BEING IN THE WHITE HOUSE AS HE WANTS TO OBEY & ENFORCE THE USA CONSTITUTION AND THEY KNOW IT!!

    Excerpt:

    “So the fact is that Ron Paul is no longer being completely ignored by the media. However, as Time as made it all too obvious, he is still being marginalized and ridiculed.

    When the time if right again, the media will simply ignore Paul again – this is the stark reality the Congressman’s campaign and his followers have to deal with and overcome.”

SEE RON PAUL AS A SERIOUS THREAT BECAUSE HE WOULD BRING THEIR SERIAL CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES TO END, AND HE WILL PUBLICLY HOLD THEM 100% ACCOUNTABLE FOR COMMITTING THEIR HIGH CRIMES TO WE THE PEOPLE!! THEY KNOW RON PAUL IS STRONG, FOLLOWS HIS OWN CHOSEN PATH, AND THAT RON PAUL IS A CONSERVATIVE & STRONG CONSTITUTIONAL LEADER WHO THEY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO CONTROL. IF HE CAN GET INTO THE OFFICE OF THE EOP (EXECUTIVE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT), RON PAUL WILL BE VERY GLAD TO CRUSH & STOP THE CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES & CRIMINAL USURPATIONS OF THE DAILY SERIAL CRIMINALS WHO ARE HOPELESSLY CORRUPT IN WASHINGTON D.C., EXPOSE THEIR CRIMES THEY ARE COMMITTING IN THE USA GOVERNMENT, & HOLD THEM 100% ACCOUNTABLE TO THE RULE OF LAW IN THE USA CONSTITUTION & TO WE THE PEOPLE.

  16. I live in North Jersey 25 mins from NYC. Gov Christie said don’t go to Atlantic City and the GSP exit 98 on down is will close tomorrow noon! There shutting down the 10 gambling casinos! I heard Mayor Bloomburgular said that the Path, Amtrak, and bus stations at the Port Authority and Penn also shutting down!

  17. Stage safe, Shannon. It will be very difficult with bo in charge.

  18. All NYC Democrats… remember this weekend to go to the waterfront to protest that evil Republican Hurricane! I’ve heard Hurricane Irene even supports Sarah Palin.
    So be sure to get down to the waterfront to protest. See your union city and state workers in action! Give FEMA someone to help! Declare your dependence on the Federal government! While you’re there, commit some crime so Eric Holder can give you too a free pass!
    btw.. Obie said don’t forget to mail your absentee ballots before the protest…

    If things get really bad, just run to the closest mosque. All are welcome..They’ll be glad to help.

  19. Thanks Free Speech!

    “Hurricane Irene is beginning to lash the Carolina coast with heavy rain and gusty winds. Buoys off the North Carolina coast were reporting waves to near 20 feet as Irene heads for landfall early Saturday. Irene’s fury is expected to deliver extremely destructive storm surges of 6-11 feet and torrential rains that could isolate the Outer Banks from the rest of the state. Strong winds will likely cause power outages.”

  24. New Yorkers ignore obot mayor bloomburglar’s order.

    http://news.yahoo.com/hurricane-yorkers-soak-beach-225117758.html

    Hours after Mayor Mike Bloomberg ordered the evacuation from the low-lying Rockaway Beach, the sun-kissed coastline was packed with sunbathers and surfers as city dwellers took the dire warnings about Hurricane Irene in stride.

    No such massive hurricane has directly hit New York City since 1938, and Bloomberg has ordered an unprecedented mass evacuation and closure of the subway, one of the few in the world that usually stays open around the clock.

  25. YAHOO: In new poll, Ron Paul rates with front-runners Romney and Perry

    And the key to this poll is that Ron Paul is viewed more favorably than any other candidate in the GOP field. And he is the only one with crossover electability. You better believe he can win. WE ARE WINNING

    http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/poll-ron-paul-rates-front

    id you notice That Ron Paul was the only one with a lower unfavorable position than his favorable, ie: 37 Fav; 36 Unfav

    Perry: 33 Fav; 36 Unfav.
    Romney: 39 Fav; 41 Unfav.

    It seems that more people no what they want in our next Prez.

    And it is growing!!!

  32. Check out the dollar bin of your local Target stores.

    Look for the children’s book, “U.S. Presidents, Hail To the Chief” (Blue with Lincoln on the cover),

    Under Zero’s entry you’ll find,

    Barack Obama is the first African American President.

    His father was from KENYA,

    His mother was from Kansas and,

    His stepfather was from INDONESIA—

    Giving Obama a diverse, uniquely AMERICAN heritage.

    Yep, nut’n says AMERICA like foreign exposure…

  33. P.S.

    I am dreading Zero’s speech at MLK’s dedication.

    I am absolutely dreading it…

    Like Hitler feigning praise for PM Netanyahu.

  34. God speed to those on the East Coast. Stay safe.

  35. The MLK dedication has been cancelled. No speech from OB.

  36. Delayed, I recall, Tina,

    Oh and we know it’s coming,

    Like a bad dream it’s coming…

    One of our Finest American Citizens “honored” by our Nation’s Biggest Fraud who’ll only hijack it for his own egotistic ends.

    I just can’t stomach it…

  37. One more Target story,

    Our local outlet sold out of Corsi’s book a week after it’s release,

    It hasn’t been restocked since.

    Be strong and safe there on the East Coast everyone.

    I can’t stand the sound of the pervert’s voice. Whenever he is on the radio or tv I turn down the sound or change the channel.

  39. CW,
    I hope your safe. Wind speeds down right now, Cat 1 at landfall. Hope your away from the surge.

    Thanks Pete.

  41. Marmar…

    Just watched the you tube you posted…you are right…this woman is ONE SCREWED-UP OBATE….being stupid would be a compliment to her….

    This is exactly whats wrong with America today…her kind (and they number in the millions) want everything given to them.. their policy is “you work, I take”. They are part of Obama’s “redistribution of the wealth” scheme..to take from the hard working men and women and given to trash like this.

    The African-American woman in this video felt she shouldn’t have to work to earn money to pay for her rent, car, insurance, her good time, etc. She felt that all this should be “given” to her. There’s a lot of her kind running loose in America today. Most feel if you don’t give it to me, then I will steal it. Every day we see the “flash” mobs running loose in most major cities. I have yet to see a white boy in the mob.

    One thing really caught my attention in this video. The woman said, “If I had my way today, I would live in Africa”. To this I say, then why dont you go to Africa and live, if this is what you want.

    I really got upset listening to her pure unadulterated bullsh*t. But, this is Obama’s kind of supporter. Thank God, her kind are not in the majority here in America!

    I have “No White Guilt” for working hard to get where I am today…I expect anyone who has worked hard to get what they have today would feel the same.
