Oriental As Matthew ApproachesA Town Preps
October 8, 2016
From South Avenue, the view across to Whittaker Point. (Photo: Ben Casey)A line of cars in most places would suggest traffic; in Oriental it means a storm’s on the way and time to park the car on higher ground. The lower part of the Oriental bridge is one such place.A new place to leave vehicles during storms: the Town-n-Country parking lot .Usually the Methodist Church lot would be full by midday of a storm’s approach. But owing to the T-n-C lot, there was still room for cars at the church lot.Some means of conveyance stayed where they were. A boat on South Water Street. A concerned neighbor tied it down with a line that may not meet US Coast Guard recommended standards.Winds early Saturday morning revealed the underside of leaves, giving the crape myrtles the more tropical look of palm trees.Hot pursuit on high water Hodges Street. (Photo: Ben Casey)East winds blew in at he Town Beach Saturday morn.
