Residents along North Carolina’s Outer Banks awoke Saturday to clear skies, receding floodwaters, and a better look at the damage left by Hurricane Dorian the day before. Ocracoke Island, where about 800 people waited out the Category 1 storm, appeared to be the hardest hit of the barrier islands, with floodwaters invading the first floors of most homes. The U.S. Coast Guard ferried assistance to the island and airlifted out those in distress.
