Preparing For The Storm:

Here are a few local businesses, located in Southport and Oak Island, who were prepared for Irene to hit. In "Prepping the Church" is a couple, Bonnie and Jim Fritchey, protecting the sign for the church they attend, as their pastor is away on missionary work in Venezuela.

Also pictured are a few homes who have boarded up to keep Irene's damage out. In ''Prepping The Home" is the Donovans getting their home, which is just across the street from the ocean, ready for windy conditions.
