Arthur became a Cat 1 hurricane on July 3rd. Arthur impacted North Carolina first. Thousands evacuated from North Carolina and its fragile outer banks before Arthur’s 7 m (22 ft) storm surge, high velocity winds and torrential rain arrived. However, many thousands chose not to evacuate and to ride out the storm. Arthur made landfall in the outer banks of North Carolina at 11:15 pm as a Cat 2 storm with winds of 166 kph (100 mph).
