Whenever there’s a hurricane, there’s someone who decides to use Mother Nature’s strength to do something fun but dumb. In this case, it’s a kitesurfer at Nags Head, North Carolina, a place that luckily avoided the real brunt of Hurricane Florence.
Still, although Nags Head might’ve caught a lucky break, some 90,000 North Carolina residents are currently without power. Five people are dead, and flood waters are rising. In certain places, nearly two feet of rain has fallen, and it’s not slowing down. “I cannot overstate it,” Gov. Roy Cooper said. “Floodwaters are rising, and if you aren’t watching for them you are risking your life,”
