Earlier tonight, the North Carolina Ferry System posted this photo and caption of the procession leaving Ocracoke Island after an Evacuation Order was issued today. “The evacuation of Ocracoke is well underway tonight. We’ll be running ferries through the evening hours if need be to get our residents and visitors to safety.”

    Why doesn’t the reporter interview folks who are in their cars evacuating to see how it really is while evacuating. Let’s see some real reporting on the actual situation ongoing and not just quotes from a bureaucrat.

    One barrier to being able to interview people who were leaving is because people who weren’t residents or homeowners were restricted from getting access to Ocracoke Island by that point.
