Hurricane Izzy starts innocently enough as a tropical wave off the coast of Africa. She quickly gains strength and speed as she fights her way across the Atlantic. In the way is Kitty Hawker Todd Richards, a dog he claims he doesn't own, and his girl on Roanoke Island.
This is a story of hope and strength that lie within the people of the Outer Banks of North Carolina. It illustrates their resiliency and teamwork in the face of the "storm of the century".
