Re: next up...

anybody know the exact location of long beach? sfc obs out of the brunswick county airport (just west of southport) made it look like the center tracked in just to the east (winds dropped to almost nothing near the time of landfall). all i can figure is that the landfall point was just east of caswell beach at the eastern end of oak island... only smith island to the east of that... cape fear is the pointed southeastern tip of smitht island.
anyhow, the brunswick county airport also reported a min. pressure at 988 mb. doesn't look like it hit the center of the eye. i guess whenever ernesto is written up (late in the fall, probably) they'll say whether it was that or a mb or two lower.

oh, ok... it's the western tip of oak island. i either misread the obs or the winds were variable in the eye. -HF
