Title: Surface wind analyses and storm-surge effects of Hurricane Emily on the Outer Banks of North Carolina
Authors: Garcia, Andrew W.

Abstract: Abstract: Surface meteorological and coastal storm-surge data for Hurricane Emily (22 August - 6 September 1993) are presented. These data include maximum surface wind speed and minimum surface central pressure histories, surface wind analyses at times of Emily's closest approach to land, 8 hr prior, and 4 hr following; and storm surge data in both tabular and graphic form for the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The report documents Emily's effects in the primary area of impact. Emily's coastal effects are noteworthy in that inundation of the barrier island system was due to high waters from Pamlico Sound rather than the Atlantic Ocean.
