North Carolina Begins Evacuating Island



    (NECN) - Weather Channel meteorologist Eric Fisher broadcasts into the studio from Wrightsville Beach, N.C.

    Here, locals are prepping for Hurricane Irene to hit by having tourists and residents leave a tiny barrier island called Ocracoke Island.

    Officials are also advising people to not only stock up on supplies like water and food, but to also have about seven days worth of cash in hand in case of emergencies.
