Recovery Begins for Hurricane Irene

Recovery Begins for Hurricane Irene

Aug 29, 2011

North Carolina is picking up the pieces from the brutal assualt of Hurricane Irene. Power is being restored and many shelters are closing. Although the storm surge on the beaches has receeded, several rivers in Eastern NC are still at flood stage. Unfortunately, there were 6 deaths in NC due to storm-related incidents; most of those were caused by fallen trees. Local, state and federal partners and volunteer organizations are working hard to restore utilities, infrastructure and normalcy to North Carolina. 

Due to planning and foresight, many states along the Eastern Seaboard heeded the warnings and evacuated people from flood-prone areas in Hurricane Irene’s path, likely saving countless lives.
