We just got back from a really nice trip down to the coast! Our first stop was a week at the Assateague Island State Park
Campground! We did hit that coastal storm for a couple days by all worked out well. Then we did two weeks at the National Seashore Campground. Both had great staffs and lots to see and do. We then headed up to Cape Henlopen State Park in Delaware.
Nice areas, great restaurants and lots of nice people. Worth trying if you are looking for places to stay in the area.

That noreaster was a bad one. The noreasters are very often worse than the hurricanes. That one was particularly bad because it hung out for many days and tore the place up.

Not sure how bad the Delmarva got hit but several homes were lost on the OBX, and many more were damaged. Most of them are oceanfront vacation rentals so I don't think anyone lost their permanent residence. Still, getting your beach rental house taken out of commission right at the start of the high season is not a good thing.

Sea level rise and beach erosion are increasing rapidly on the East Coast. Much better to have an RV that can be relocated inland than an immobile building IMHO. The campground infrastructure and roads often get taken out of commission for awhile, but all that means for an RV'r is that they have to pick another destination that season.

We sold our house on the OBX several years ago and moved to the mountains. Not going to get ocean flooding at 2700ft elevation...

It did do a lot of damage to the shoreline, they roped off the beach entrances and closed the dune buggy trails. Maryland lost a few vertical feet of beach, someone at Cape Henlopen said they lost close to 6 vertical feet in places. For a couple days we had 20-25 mph winds steady with up to 40 mph gusts.
Makes camping interesting.
We did see that video of the Residence on Cape Hatteras, we used to stay at the Cape Hatteras KOA for several years which was just down the road.
