Outer Banks Shipwreck Uncovered

This week's radical weather further uncovered a piece of history on our northern beaches across from the Whalehead in Historic Corolla community. The treacherous waters off the coast of the Outer Banks have claimed up to 2,000 ships since reporting first began in 1526 after a large vessel sank off the coast of the Cape Fear River.
