Allstate Insurance Adjuster | September 21, 2018

It’s a scene happening at many homes post Hurricane Florence: Wilma Kennedy of S Water St speaks with Kevin Young, an Allstate insurance adjuster deployed from Austin, Texas. Wilma’s home was flooded. Even with power back on, there is no power here. The electrical system was destroyed by the storm.

Keith Bruno Bombing Range | September 20, 2018

Florence knocked out Endurance Seafood, a small family fishing business owned by Keith Bruno. When TownDock visited, Bruno retained his classic positive attitude about it all. The docks and ice house were totally destroyed. It may take a few months, but the business will be back. The sign, washed up in his yard, is from a military bombing target in the Pamlico Sound.

Rabid Rabbit on A Dock | September 18, 2018

It beats sinking. Boats got moved around during Hurricane Florence. This one ended up on A Dock at Oriental Harbor Marina by the bridge, with pilings for jack stands. No word yet on how they’ll get her back in the water. TownDock staff suspects Rabid Rabbit may self-launch. Click for the bigger pic and more views

Florence in the Night | September 13, 2018

TownDock’s HarborCam is on, but there’s not enough net to process the images. So HarborCam updates are now completely manual. Peak wind this morning 62 at 5:31a. Click for the bigger pic and an early shot of the docklines at Garland Fulcher docks.
