HYUNSOO LEO KIM, THE VIRGINIAN-PILOT/AP PHOTO Bryan Wilson, owner of Miller's Waterfront Restaurant, braves floodwaters Friday to check the damage to his property as wind from Hurricane Arthur pushes water into his parking lot in Nags Head, N.C. Arthur struck North Carolina as a Category 2 storm with winds of 100 mph late Thursday. Arthur left tens of thousands of people without power Friday in a swipe at North Carolina's dangerously exposed Outer Banks, then brought lousy Fourth of July beach weather to the Northeast as it veered out to sea. Forecasters predicted the storm would weaken before its center moves over western Nova Scotia in Canada early today.
