Irene: Strongest Hurricane to Hit Carolinas Since 1996

By , Senior Meteorologist
Aug 23, 2011; 7:01 AM ET
"Residents of the Carolinas should not underestimate the power Irene has the potential to unleash..."

Irene is projected to become the strongest hurricane to hit the Carolinas since 1996 this weekend. Six years have passed since the entire United States endured a blow like Irene is forecast to unleash.
The Hurricane Center is expecting Irene to blast onto the Carolina coastline in between Myrtle Beach and Morehead City this weekend as a strong Category 3 hurricane.
Irene even has a good chance of strengthen into a dangerous Category 4 hurricane by Thursday, and it is not out of the question that Irene maintains this powerful strength through its landfall in the Carolinas.
Whether at strong Category 3 or 4 status, Irene will pose a serious threat to lives and property at landfall as reported by Expert Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski.
Residents of the Carolinas should not underestimate the power Irene has the potential to unleash, especially since these states have not been the target of such a fierce hurricane in 15 years.

OCP Web Cam Up & Running on Web Site

Ocean Crest Pier
Pier Cam Live
We are happy to inform you all that the OCP Web Cam is up-and-running. Finally! And it was worth the wait. Now everyone can check their  favorite fishing spot, view wind direction(via flag), see who's on the pier, check out the local action, see what's biting, and view the waves. 
Some browsers & systems may require you to first install the ActiveX Plugin before viewing  camera for the first time. Then you proceed to view the pier with two options. You have the option of clicking on Stream 1 or 2(these are same) for Real Time Streaming Protocol, or clicking on M-JPEG for frame-by-frame still shots. Please be patient with us on the load and refresh rates as we are   testing out the bandwidth to see its affects on your viewing quality. If you have any questions or comments concerning OCP Web Cam, PLEASE REFER THEM TO: Jaymie Christine.
