Hurricane Sandy Update #4 (Monday, 10/29/12)
Monday morning here on the Outer Banks and the effects of Hurricane Sandy are starting to diminish. Winds have died down overnight from the sustained 35 MPH speeds to less than 20 MPH this morning. Wind gusts were in excess of 50 MPH yesterday with the strongest gust recorded at 70 MPH on Hatteras Island in Frisco. The steady rain that has totaled more than 5 inches has become intermittent this morning and more of a drizzle as the storm is clearly moving towards the north away from our area.
