WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - It’s been almost two weeks since Hurricane Dorian made Landfall in the Bahamas before heading to the North Carolina coast. At least 50 people were killed in the Abaco Islands and Grand Bahama Island while 70,000 people were left homeless.
The storm wasn’t as vicious to the North Carolina coast, but catastrophic flooding trapped hundreds of residents of Ocracoke Island and damaged homes along the Outer Banks.
The storm also spawned tornadoes that turned an RV park into a pile of rubble. The good news is no one was seriously injured.
