Cape Fear region rebounds from Hurricane Arthur

Posted: Updated:
WILMINGTON, N.C. -
Officials in the Cape Fear region say Hurricane Arthur did little to slow visitors to the region despite making landfall just before the Fourth of July holiday weekend.
    
Arthur passed through the Wilmington area last Thursday night, bringing bands of heavy rain and top winds of up to 70 mph.
    
By the morning of Independence Day, the storm was gone and visitors were heading back to the beaches.
    
Ocean Isle Beach Mayor Debbie Smith told the StarNews of Wilmington that the town had a beautiful weekend and that the holiday was as busy as it normally is. Smith said the weekend was probably busier than normal because conditions improved after the storm.
    
Meanwhile, one charter boat operator says media coverage of Arthur brought his business to a standstill.
