Water from Hurricane Arthur buckled a section of North Carolina Highway 12 on Hatteras Island, seen in a Friday, July 4, 2014 photo provided by the North Carolina Department of Transportation.

When Arthur made landfall as a Category 2 hurricane last on July 3rd, Ocracoke and Hatteras Islands in North Carolina absorbed the bulk of the impact. According to catastrophe modeling firm AIR Worldwide, approximately 44,000 customers lost power and part of both barrier islands experienced some flooding. There were downed trees and power lines from North Carolina to Nova Scotia, but the amount of damage sustained was relatively light by insurance standards.

State Farm reported less than 50 claims in North Carolina by late yesterday afternoon. According to AIR, a section of Highway 12 on the Bonner Bridge buckled and its stability had to be assessed. The road provides a link between Hatteras and the mainland, and was eventually reopened on Saturday.
