Section of Carolina Beach Fishing Pier destroyed by Florence

CAROLINA BEACH, N.C. (WECT) - The Carolina Beach Fishing Pier appears to have been significantly damaged as Hurricane Florence slammed the New Hanover County shoreline throughout Friday.

Some of the pier's broken pillars could be seen jutting out from the ocean water as the rough waves continued to hammer the Pleasure Island landmark.
