Ocracoke Island Harbor at Sunset by 

Ocracoke Island is part of the chain of islands that form the Outer Banks (also known as OBX), a 200-mile (320-km) long string of narrow barrier islands off the coast of North Carolina, USA.
The Outer Banks is not anchored to offshore coral reefs like some other barrier islands and often suffers significant beach erosion during major storms. Hatteras Island was cut in half on September 18, 2003, when Hurricane Isabel washed a 2,000 foot (600 m) wide and 15 foot (5 m) deep channel called Isabel Inlet through the community of Hatteras Village on the southern end of the island. The tear was subsequently repaired and restored by sand dredging by the Army Corps of Engineers. It was cut off once again in 2011 by Hurricane Irene
