Southport, North Carolina (NC) - Hurricane Charley was a very fast
moving storm but packed a pretty good punch for a minimal category 1
storm. Structural damage was moderate on Oak Island in particular.
Just about every oceanfront home and second row home lost roofing
shingles and siding. Some homes lost a significant amount of siding.
The most dramatic damage noted by this reporter was a roof from an
oceanfront home completely torn from the home and landed on the deck
of a second row home diagonally across the street. Flooding from
Hurricane Charley was minimal, as were power outages. Overall,
Charley was a weak, fast moving storm causing minimal damage.
