WILMINGTON, N.C. (WNCN) – A live camera 34 miles off the coast of North Carolina that earned fame during Hurricane Florence is back.
The camera atop the Frying Pan Tower shows an American flag on the platform.
During Florence, the flag, named “Kevin,” was battered throughout the hurricane and became badly damaged.
“Kevin” was later auctioned off for $10,900 in the weeks following Florence.
The proceeds went to the Red Cross and its relief efforts.
The tower was a lighthouse up until 1965. It was being used as a bed-and-breakfast after it was bought from the U.S. government, but it is now being restored, according to the tower’s website. The goal of the restoration is to make “this amazing piece of USA history last well into the next fifty years.”
