Hurricane Season Ends Today – November 30, 2017

The catastrophic Atlantic hurricane season officially ends today. Ten hurricanes ripped through the Atlantic this year, causing major damage in Texas, Florida, the islands, and Puerto Rico.  One storm even went as far as Ireland.

Fortunately, Pender County came through the hurricane season unscathed, especially after last year’s Hurricane Matthew.  Let’s hope the upcoming winter season is a little quieter.
