A man walks along Avalon Pier in Kill Devil Hills, Outer Banks, N.C., Aug. 27, 2011, as Hurricane Irene reaches the North Carolina coast. Irene slammed into North Carolina's coast around dawn Saturday with howling winds and drenching rains amid reports of flooding and thousands of people without power. (By mid-morning Saturday, over 300,000 customers were reported to have lost power). The hurricane made landfall on the Outer Banks of North Carolina about 7:30 a.m. ET Saturday morning, losing some power but still whipping up sustained winds of 85 mph, as it continued its run up the Eastern Seaboard.

The National Hurricane Center said the eye of the enormous Category 1 storm passed over Cape Lookout, with winds slipping a bit from 100 mph overnight, but warned Irene would remain a hurricane as it moves up the mid-Atlantic coast. (Photo credit by AP Photo/Charles Dharapak)
