They day after Christmas turned into quite a weather event for Pleasure Island, NC as reports of tornados were making headlines.
Fortunately for the island, none of the tornados materialized although the National Weather Service did report a microburst on the island which did cause some minor damage in both Kure Beach and Carolina Beach.
Here are some great photos as the storm passed off shore. The photos were posted on Facebook and each photographer was nice enough to make them 'public' so we could share with blog followers:
