LOWLAND, NC - AUGUST 28: Ivan Ireland, 43, traverses his property with a cooler and his daughters Ava Ireland, 3, and Layla Ireland (hidden), 5, as they prepare to leave their destroyed home after riding out Hurricane Irene on Goose Creek Island on August 28, 2011 in Lowland, North Carolina. Water rose over six feet and into the Ireland's home where they escaped by fishing boat only to find nowhere to escape to. It is estimated only 10 of 500 residents on Goose Creek Island did not lose everything. (Photo by Sara D. Davis/Getty Images) less
