IT*3 THE SEASON A hurricane is probably the most dangerous and
distructive storm situation on earth. Many
FOR HURRICANES I people will tell you they have been through a
hurricane, but the chances are they really haven’t
... most likely they have been on the fringes of a
hurricane... because very few people have ever survived a hurricane.
Hurricane winds are in excess of 74 miles an hour and have been re
corded as high as 190 miles an hour. At 74 miles an hour anything
loose, such as flower pots, garbage cans, pieces of lumber, wheel
barrows will start to fly. The shingles on your house will start to
loosen and shortly tear off. As the storm progresses a surge will
^develop on the ocean and Bogue Sound, which can reach a height of 10
|to 15 feet. The weight and velocity of this water will simply dis
solve the dune in front of your house, can left a house off its slab
or foundation and can batter a house into a pile of rubble.
This sounds awsome, and it is; but it is also the facts of life
with respect to a hurricane as it was discussed at a recent reor
ganization meeting of the Pine Knoll Shores Civil Preparedness Or
ganization. V/ith the resignation of Bob MacAnaw as director, Allen
Mitchell was appointed by the Commissioners to fill the post. Others
in the organization include George Eastland, Deputy Director and
Operations Officer; Bill Macdonald, Damage Control Officer and Scott
Cuthill and Mel Wylie, Traffic Controllers.
The Town of Pine Knoll Shores, for the purposes of civil preparedness
has been divided into five areas. The coordinators of these areas
are George Kloek, area one; Ray Hare, area two; Eric Hassel, area
three; Milton laeck, area four; and Ed Sigall, area five.
