Yesterday, the storm moved over Buoy #41047, providing a crazy webcam snap during waves that had just fallen from over 40 feet (one of the highest wave readings I've seen this season). Soon, Hurricane Maria (wind gusts shown below courtesy Windy TY.com) will start to affect the Outer Banks, which took a hit from Hurricane Jose last week.
We also evaluated the Logitech C270, which lacks autofocus but meets our other requirements and costs only .
The Outer Banks has a number of fairly high-resolution coastal DOT webcams -- a couple of their live images are shown below and you can get many more North Carolina coast webcams on my website.
You can see from the first shot, which is just south of the new new Bonner Bridge, that they built up huge sand dunes after Hurricane Jose, which cut right across the road, covering it in sand and temporarily closing it.
UPDATES: 12 PM 9/26/2017: Significant overwash is occurring at the Hatteras Ferry and on Highway 12 south of the new bridge.
I've added a special page where you can see all the North Carolina coast webcams, and there are also some from Virginia and South Carolina on that page. 9 AM 9/26/2017: Removed the Bonner-South camera which stopped transmitting at 6 AM.
Its mount also folds around the camera to protect the lens, making the C615 a better portable option than the C920.
