During a lull in the storm Friday, Fox News' Leland Vittert surveyed damage from Hurricane Florence on the island of Bogue Banks -- one of the places hit hard by Hurricane Florence.

Hurricane Florence was recently downgraded to Tropical Storm Florence, Neil Cavuto reported on "Your World."

At one point during the storm, Vittert and his crew moved across the Causeway from Atlantic Beach to mainland Morehead City as conditions deteriorated.

Along the waterfront on Evans Street, storm surge was causing water to breach the wooden wharfs where places like the Sanitary Seafood Market has stood for decades.

Back in Atlantic Beach, Vittert stood outside Pacific beachwear on Highway 58, one of the collection of beach-themed mega-stores along the Carolina coast.

He said that many of the windows had been "blown out" and that the front door was missing. Vittert added that authorities in Atlantic Beach considered the roof to be heavily damaged.

Farther along Highway 58, images of massive flooding in Salter Path and Indian Beach were captured by the local Crab Shack restaurant that sits along Salter Path Road.

At the other end of Bogue Banks from Vittert, photos from the town of Emerald Isle showed major flooding near the Emerald Drive portion of Highway 58.

Another photo showed where water from Bogue Sound appeared to have breached across a strip of 58 in the mainland community of Cape Carteret, ahead of the B. Cameron Langston Bridge.

The bridge, along with the Causeway near Fort Macon, are the only two connections between the island and the mainland. 

Pictures from Pine Knoll Shores, the other community on the island, showed several downed trees.

The National Park Service also captured images of hurricane damage along the Cape Lookout National Seashore and on Harker's Island -- about 20 miles northeast of Vittert's position in Morehead City.

Farther down the coast, Fox's Steve Harrigan reported similar damage occurring on Topsail Island, just south of USMC Base Camp Lejeune where Marines were reportedly riding out Florence.

Shepard Smith reported that flooding has affected the inland cities of Washington and New Bern. Dozens of water rescues have been undertaken in New Bern, Smith reported.
