TV storm troupers descend on coast to catch Ophelia's fury (News & Observer)

I wonder if any of them got it right. Joke of the storm was the staff of the Nags Head pier telling Weather Channel Storm chaser Jim Cantori that they were cathcing "grouper and snapper" both deep water fish. I wonder if that was why he stopped reporting from the pier with its great visuals and moved up by the Comfort Inn North across from the monument. | Hurricane Ophelia
Representatives of Triangle TV stations said Wednesday that Hurricane Katrina did not inspire extensive local television news coverage for the weaker Ophelia.

WTVD ABC-11, WRAL/WRAZ, WNCN NBC-17 and the 24-hour cable news channel News 14 Carolina have all dispatched crews along the coast to cover the storm, classified as Category 1, the weakest on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale.
