Cleanup and recovery got underway Wednesday (Sept. 11) at Boardwalk RV Park, where a tornado destroyed or damaged several residences and businesses off Islander Drive in Emerald Isle, N.C., last week, according to the Carteret County News-Times.

The tornado struck Thursday morning as the community was preparing for Hurricane Dorian, which made landfall Friday at Cape Hatteras.

While some residents were in their trailers at the RV park when the tornado struck, officials report no serious injuries.

Gov. Roy Cooper and Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., have both visited the site and talked to residents and business owners there.
