Hurrican Earl Update
September 3, 2010 by USA Post
The impact of waves on the beaches of the north area, which is expected to cause erosion problems, will not be known until dawn, said Hawkins.
But what is known is that the local area saw little or no precipitation. And some precipitation would be a good thing.
“We have not received any rain and we really need the rain in southeastern North Carolina,” said Hawkins.
The greatest impact of the area is likely to see in their fragile beaches where the waves were up to 14 feet on the banks of frying Pan and seven to eight feet 10 miles southeast of Wrightsville Beach, said Hawkins.
A small craft warning is still in the affections of the area and there is still a high risk of rip currents even though the waves are expected to settle back to about four to six feet this afternoon.
Wilmington residents in the north might not be so relieved to wake up this morning, as Earl was due east of Cape Hatteras at around 5 am with its strongest winds ranged from 60 to 70 kilometers per hour, said Hawkins.
