Hatteras First Effects of Joaquin

October 4, 2015
Kate Pullen

I don’t know if it was a really low tide this morning, but I didn’t think it was going to be too bad this afternoon.

Was I ever wrong…

It was like someone threw a switch and the ocean just started SURGING.

I took my kids with me to photograph the over wash.

These photos were taken at high tide.

The swell from Joaquin is supposed to peak sometime tomorrow.

The next couple of high tides are going to be pretty bad here in Buxton.

I might venture up to Rodanthe tomorrow morning to see how things are up north.

Keep all of the FOLKS in your prayers that are being affected by this storm.

-Daniel

Yes, I take my kids with me to document storm coverage when it’s not too bad yet. Though she is smiling in the photo,  it’s been a good way to teach them about storms and their seriousness.

Thanks for giving us a look at what is going on down on Hatteras. Can’t imagine how bad things would be if the hurricane was coming closing to our barrier islands. Love that you take the kids out to experience all sides of Mother Nature.

Thanks for sharing these. I know the village and Buxton well. Hatteras Village is probably worse than Buxton. Now you know the government will be slow. I really hope they do the beach reclamation project in 2016 for you and all of us who love the Outer Banks. Again thanks so much for sharing.
