…WITH SLIDE SHOWS
Island Free Press photographer Don Bowers sent us some photos that he took after hurricanes Emily and Isabel.
There are two slide shows – one very short one from Emily and a longer one from Isabel.
The Hurricane Emily photos were taken in the Buxton area shortly after the storm passed.
The Hurricane Isabel photos were taken during and after the storm.
are many photos of Isabel Inlet that was cut between Frisco and
Hatteras village – from the air and from the Frisco and the Hatteras
sides of the breach. There are photos of the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers moving sand that was moved in through a pipeline from

Many of the photos
show the destroyed businesses and motels on the eastern edge of
Hatteras village – and even the one house that was washed into the
The flooding photos are mostly from the Buxton area during the storm.
