A page went out over our phone system today - an agent was letting us know that there was a funnel cloud visable over Outer Banks Paints. Fortunately, I had my camera. Was told that it was out over Kitty Hawk Bay - have not confirmed it yet
Wildfires west of the Outer Banks have coated our coast with thick smoke. Estimates say it could last for months unless there is a significant downpour. The growth of peat is what's on fire and isn't put out easily.
