What locals are saying

Both the town and island bearing the name Oak Island have survived multiple hurricanes only to be rebuilt stronger than before. Hurricane Hazel in 1954 did the most damage, destroying all but five buildings on the island. Severe damage was also caused by hurricanes Diane in 1984, Bertha and Fran in 1996, and Floyd in 1999. But don't fret! It's been 15 years since the last one, so residents are happy and scrappy in Oak Island as ever.

There's more than one Oak Island off the coast of North Carolina near the South Carolina state line
