NAGS HEAD, NC - AUGUST 28: Billy Stinson (L) is comforted by Lisa Morrisette while he sits next to a pile of debris that was once his cottage August 28, 2011 in Nags Head, North Carolina. The cottage, built in 1903 and destroyed yesterday by Hurricane Irene, was one of the first vacation cottages built on Albemarle Sound in Nags Head. Stinson has owned the home, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, since 1963. (Photo by Scott Olson/Getty Images) less
