    I guess you could say my journalism career began about the time I won “Best Storyteller” in my kindergarten class. I’m a proud graduate of Winston-Salem State University, where I worked at the school newspaper for four years, three as sports editor and one as editor-in-chief.

Upon initial review, it looks like the first major storm of the season did minimal damage on North Carolina’s coast.

NC Governor Pat McCrory issued a statement regarding relatively light impact of Hurricane Arthur.

“Although Hurricane Arthur made landfall near Morehead City as a category two hurricane, there are minimal reports of damage,” McCrory said. “Our teams have transitioned into the recovery phase and have begun damage assessments in the hardest hit areas.”

Emergency Management Director Mike Sprayberry cautioned that it was still too early to declare the storm as a pushover, however.

“Although preliminary reports are very positive, it is going to take us a few days to fully comprehend the full impact of Hurricane Arthur,” he said.

Perhaps the most unusual thing about Arthur is just how early it made its way to the coast. It was the earliest hurricane to hit the state in recorded history, which dates back to 1851. It beat the old record by more than a week.
