Although the northern Outer Banks was largely spared, there was some structure damage, flooding, countless trees down, and widespread power outages. Two of the Outer Banks’ beloved fishing piers, Avalon Pier in Kill Devil Hills and Nags Head Pier, were damaged in the large surf produced by Dorian. Avalon Pier lost approximately 300 feet of the end of the pier, and Nags Head Pier is now about 75 feet shorter.
The video below was filmed in the days after Hurricane Dorian moved away from the Outer Banks. It details hurricane damage in the Kill Devil Hills and Nags Head areas as the cleanup and power restoration efforts were just beginning.
