Hurricane Dorian caused extensive damage at Cape Lookout National Seashore.  About 40 historic structures at Portsmouth Village had major damage from wind and flooding.  The cabins on North Core Banks also received major damage. The storm created more than 50 new inlets cutting through from the Atlantic Ocean to the Core Sound.  According to a news release, nearly 70 National Park Service employees from across the nation are helping clean up and repair infrastructure. Hurricane Dorian passed offshore of Cape Lookout National Seashore as a category one hurricane on Friday.
