Outer Banks - Aerial footage of the coast on Friday showed damage brought on by Hurricane Arthur that made landfall the night before.
People had to maneuver through flooded neighborhoods and around downed power lines.
The storm surge and heavy rain caused flooding in many neighborhoods, causing some roads to be impassible.
Many of the homes along the coast were unscathed but there was some roof damage with shingles peeled off of them.
By late Friday morning, power outages were at 41,500 customers, with 11,000 of those in Carteret County. Figures continued to drop through the day; Duke Energy, for example, was down to 6,000 outages by noon, 11,000 fewer than in the morning.
Arthur is the first named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season. It is the earliest in the season a hurricane has made landfall in North Carolina.
