Hurricane Irene 2011 Neighborhoods Cleaning up after storm Posted by dawnstultz 09/06/2011 Many ocean front areas of the Outer Banks were spared during this last storm. The sound side and canal front communities were another story with many residents cleaning out garages, downstairs rooms that were flooded, damage vehicles, boats, piers and docks. Residents and visitors have returned to most areas except for the Hatteras Island area - Pictured above is Rodanthe. Evacuated residents are just now returning to their homes in this area. If you own a home on the Outer Banks (except Hatteras Island) and would like somone to drive by and check on it, please let me know and I will try my best to accommodate your request.
