The weather’s perfect, but a power outage has driven all of the visitors and vacationers off of the southern Outer Banks of North Carolina. This week, people on Ocracoke Island talk about what happens when their tourist destination suddenly becomes off-limits to nearly everybody.
- For more up-to-date information on the Outer Banks blackout, check out the Ocracoke Observer and outerbanksvoice.com.
