Hurricane Irene

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. It is the same spot on Hatteras Island that was breached in Hurricane Irene in 2011. Proving far less damaging than feared, Hurricane Arthur left tens of thousands of people without power Friday in a swipe at North Carolina's dangerously exposed Outer Banks, but the weather along the narrow barrier islands had already cleared by Friday afternoon (AP Photo/North Carolina Department of Transportation)

Irene, the hurricane that weakened to a tropical storm, thrashed the East Coast, knocking out power to millions of homes and businesses, destroying piers and killing at least 40 people in 11 states. (AP)
