Lexus Meekins,  9, right, and her aunt Jessica Meekins, center, help Lexus' brother Freeman Meekins, 5, walk along a flooded street from the beach with Jessica Meekins' fiance Eric Hissey, right, and his dog Bella, as Hurricane Irene continued to bring wind and rain to Buxton, NC, on the Outer Banks on Saturday, Aug. 27, 2011.  The adults took the kids to see the beach because they were getting cabin fever in the hotel during the long storm.  The sand blast from the high winds was too much for them, and they left after only a minute.  Photo by Ted Richardson
