Hurricane Earl
Hurricane Earl had little impact on the coast when it came through in September. Although it was a very large storm, Earl only brushed the coast, causing no significant damage or beach erosion. N.C. Hwy. 12 in the Outer Banks did require some minor repairs, and DCM staff worked with the state Department of Transportation to quickly obtain any needed CAMA permits so repairs could begin quickly.

Prior to the storm, DCM closed five coastal reserve sites to visitors in an effort to protect public safety. Four of those sites were reopened the day after the storm passed, and the final one, Buxton Woods on Hatteras Island, was reopened the following week after staff were able to assess damage and clear some roads and trails.

 

NOAA meeting
North Carolina will host the Southeast Regional Coastal Program and NERR Meeting on Pivers Island in Beaufort Nov. 8-10. This meeting will bring together coastal managers from North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida, plus officials from NOAA and other federal agencies. The meeting will allow coastal managers to share information and hear from their colleagues on important regional and national issues.

NOAA Launches Coastal Interviews from the States
NOAA's National Ocean Service website has downloaded a series of interviews the Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management did with several Coastal Zone and National Estuarine Research Reserve Managers entitledAmerica's Coasts...A View from the States. In the series, these managers share their perspectives on the value of and challenges facing our nation’s coasts. The first interview,A Glimpse of the Coast, features North Carolina’s reserve manager Rebecca Ellin. The interviews can be accessed on NOAA’s website.
