This Day in Weather History:
1988 - Low pressure off the Atlantic coast produced high winds across North Carolina, with gusts of up to 78 mph reported at Waves, N.C. The high winds combined with high tides to cause coastal flooding and erosion. About 275 feet of land was eroded from the northern tip of Pea Island.
