NAGS HEAD – The day after Irene started out a lot like the day before the Hurricane hit the Outer Banks; a little windy and waves low.

Sand has been swept onto many roads and even into a hotel pool.

The U.S. Geological Survey coastal geologists had forecast that sand likely would be be washed inland, covering roads, evacuation routes, and lower levels of homes in the Outer Banks.

USGS completed pre-storm surveys to assess expected significant coastal erosion and was set to begin post-storm survey flights as early as Sunday.

Part of a deck at a hotel was torn off during the storm. But there was initially no building damage or injuries reported.
