The Outer Banks was spared most of the impact from the recent hurricane. Our businesses are open and welcoming guests for the new fall season. Meanwhile, our thoughts and hearts are with the areas more affected by the storm. Check the bottom of the page for a few ways the OBX community is helping and other opportunities to contribute to the Carolinas' Hurricane Florence relief. Share your posts of encouragement and volunteer opportunities using #CAREolinas.
