Oregon Inlet's Questionable Future


Author(s):
Abstract:
A powerful hurricane created Oregon Inlet in 1846. Throughout its existence the inlet has been known as the East Coast's most dangerous maritime passageway. Just keeping it open today for charter, commercial, and recreational boats is a challenge for local, state, and federal officials. Powell discusses what is being done to keep this doorway to the Atlantic open.
