After Last Sept. Hurricane, How Well Has Wilmington...

We had a long weekend planned for Wilmington last year in mid-Septmeber, but just before we went, the hurricane struck (can't remember which one...there were so many bad ones last year). We'd like to try again this year perhaps, but don't know what conditions are like now.

How well has Wilmington repaired itself since the hurricane? Heard initially there was a good bit of damage.

There is no damage in Wilmington or in the area. It flooded a bit, the power was out, and a few beach homes lost some roofing, but rumors of big damage are greatly exaggerated.

It was Hurricane Ophelia, and it never came ashore. Plus, it was a weak hurricane. Basically like the above poster stated, the eyewall never came ashore so it basically a rain event with gusts of winds.
