Comments: Hurricane Bonnie made landfall as a category 3 hurricane striking eastern North Carolina and Virginia with extensive agricultural damage due to winds and flooding, with 10-inch rains in 2 days in some locations. NOAA reports $720 million in damges. Three people died as a consequence of Bonnie. A 12-year old girl was killed when a large tree fell on her home in Currituck County, NC. Another person was caught in rip currents and drowned in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. The third person died in Cape Cod in a rowboat accident when choppy seas overturned the boat. The last one may have been indirectly related to Bonnie.
