Floyd Follow-Up - The Lingering Effects

Record #:
Floods from Hurricane Floyd devastated Eastern North Carolina. Coastal waters were affected by an increase of nutrients and decreased levels of salt and oxygen in the estuaries. While the Cape Fear system was able to quickly recover because of a faster flow of water, the Pamlico Sound still has signs of stress. The long-term effect of the flood on these areas is yet to be determined.
