Tropical Weather Wild Horses
FILE - In this July 25, 2011, file photo, a group of wild horses cools off in the ocean breeze on the beach in Corolla, N.C. As North Carolina braces for Hurricane Florence, some tourists and residents are worried about the famous wild horses that roam the Outer Banks. But Sue Stuska, a wildlife biologist based at Cape Lookout National Seashore, said the horses instinctively know what to do in a storm.

The wild horses of North Carolina are "doing their normal thing" despite Florence


WASHINGTON (Circa) - Hurricane Florence has left some destruction on the coast of North Carolina, but the horse residents remain unaffected.

The wild horses that live on the Outer Banks are "doing their normal thing" according to a Facebook update posted by the Corolla Wild Horse Fund. They said the flooding the horses faced was no worse than a regular storm.

Cape Hatteras National Seashore also posted that their Ocracoke ponies are safe and their property undamaged from the storm on their end of the Outer Banks.

The Facebook fans of both pony sites left relieved comments in response to the news.
