That looks like it will be ultra sharky. And it seems like it's risky business living there, but I bet it is well worth the risk if you manage to make it through the years. I am surprised they don't make artificial foundations that are more above sea level that can withstand the effects of a hurricanes.

The back side that took a wallop from the 8 foot sound side wave which slammed the village. I'm curious what they're going to do about the new bridge they just awarded the contract 2 months ago to replace the current one over Oregon Inlet. "The bridge to nowhere." Hopefully common sense prevails and they opt to build the long span bridge that would travel 15 miles on the backside of pea island. Wouldn't count on common sense though :((
