Tattered US Flag Remains on Frying Pan Tower as Camera Turns Back on After Florence

The live camera atop Frying Pan Tower, a Coast Guard light station turned bed-and-breakfast off the North Carolina coast, returned on September 20, a week after Hurricane Florence’s devastating winds shut the camera down.

In much calmer weather, what remained of the American flag on the tower – last seen nearly shredded by hurricane force winds – hung limply on the flag pole.

Richard Neal, the tower’s owner, said last week that Flag and Banner had offered to replace the tower’s damaged flags. Credit: Explore.org via Storyful
