Hurricane Emily (1993)

Hurricane Emily was a Category 3 tropical cyclone during the 1993 Atlantic hurricane season. Emily formed as a tropical depression over the open Atlantic Ocean on August 22 and moved generally northwestward. Initially, the cyclone remained disorganized due to unfavorable wind shear, but it was upgraded to a hurricane on August 26 after reconnaissance aircraft observed unusually high winds. It continued to strengthen while moving toward the west to west-northwest, becoming a major hurricane off the coast of the Carolinas. On September 1, the storm brushed the Outer Banks of North Carolina before heading back out to sea. Despite coming within miles of North Carolina as a major hurricane, the storm caused only three deaths and $50 million (2004 US dollars) in damages.
