“A Wreck across the street from The Wreck! A lot of sand has washed out with this Nor’Easter & look what’s been exposed!” The Wreck Tiki Bar in Hatteras, North Carolina, said on Facebook.

The wreck appeared not far from the North Carolina Maritime Center’s Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum. Mary Ellen Riddle, with the museum, said she did not get a chance to see the wreck before it was covered again in sand.

Orville Wright bust stolen from North Carolina monument

  Orville Wright bust stolen from North Carolina monument The National Park Service says a copper bust of aviation pioneer Orville Wright has been stolen from the Wright Brothers National Memorial in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The Park Service and local law enforcement officials are investigating the case and are asking the public for any information.

“You never know what’s going to wash up,” she said in a phone interview with McClatchy news group. “It’s amazing what does wash up.” She said the most interesting thing to appear on Outer Banks beaches recently was a civil war cannon ball.

North Carolina’s Outer Banks have long been treacherous for sailors, and countless shipwrecks dating back to the 16th century earned the state’s coast the name “The Graveyard of the Atlantic,” according to the National Parks Service.

“To follow coastal trade routes, thousands of these vessels had to round not only North Carolina’s barrier islands, which lie 30 miles off the mainland, but also the infamous Diamond Shoals, a treacherous, always-shifting series of shallow, underwater sandbars extending eight miles out from Cape Hatteras,” the Parks Service said.

Man strangled to death in Seattle's Lake City neighborhood identified

  Man strangled to death in Seattle's Lake City neighborhood identified A man strangled to death in the early evening hours on Saturday in Seattle’s Lake City neighborhood has been identified. The King County Medical Examiner identified the man as 52-year-old Derrick Frost and determined his cause of death was due to strangulation. Seattle police responded to the 12500 block of 33rd Ave. NE just after 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12 for a report of a fight happening. Officers found Frost unresponsive on the sidewalk and began performing CPR before Seattle Fire Department medics arrived, but Frost died at the scene.A 39-year-old suspect, later identified as Michael Banks, was found a short distance away and arrested.

Ships drew close to the Outer Banks to catch currents running along the eastern seaboard. “Flowing like massive rivers in the sea, the cold-water Labrador Current from the north and the warm Gulf Stream from the south converge just offshore from the cape,” according to NPS.

Storms and shifting sands reveal the Outer Banks’ dangerous history from time to time. Earlier this year, the remains of the four-masted G.A Kohler were visible on the beach near Salvo, North Carolina, according to Cape Hatteras National Seashore and The Charlotte Observer.
