Eye of Hurricane Arthur about to make landfall near North Carolina’s Cape Lookout

03 Jul

 

Packing maximum sustained winds of 100 mph and reaching Category 2 force, Hurricane Arthur made its landfall on the Eastern Seaboard late Thursday, after prompting thousands of residents and vacationers to flee the coastline in anticipation.

The eye of the storm made landfall near North Carolina’s Cape Lookout not long after 11 p.m. ET, after churning and gaining strength as it steadily moved north along the coast.

Hurricane warnings were in place Thursday evening along the North Carolina coast up to the Virginia border, and tropical storm warnings were issued as far north as Nantucket Island and Cape Cod in Massachusetts.
