North Carolina's Hurricane History by Jay Barnes (UNC Press 1998)(551.552) is a thoughtful compensium of hurricanes from the 1500's forward that have significantly affected the North Carolina coast. I found particularly interesting the accounts of flooding in New Bern and Morehead City, which has occured numerous times. Tricia: There has never been a Categpry Five storm top hit North Carolina. 6.5/10, finished 9/7/11.
Informative but a bit dry and really needs to be updated to reflect the hurricanes through 2010 at least. The latest one is Floyd in 1999 so hearing it talk about that Hurricane being the worst ever is a bit odd in light of Katrina etc.

Lots of material on Fran and Floyd (and vivid material at that), not much on storms before the 1940s. This is not intended to be a comprehensive historical treatment, nor especially one focused on the mechanics of hurricanes.
