>> are beginning to feel the effects on north carolina 's outer banks . weather channel meteorologist julie martin joins us now from nags head . how are things there?
>> reporter: good evening, lester. things are definitely deteriorating in nags head . we are getting lashed with outer rain bands from sandy, even though it's still well offshore from the carolinas. just goes to show you the size and strength of this storm. the worst, however, is yet to come here in the outer banks . late tonight and overnight we are going to be dealing with tropical storm conditions, high winds , coastal flooding. possibly even power outages. most of the residents here have been through nor'easters, hurricanes and tropical systems many times. they have decided to ride it out. one man here told me a long time resident that he's not sure about this strange storm named sandy. he's not letting his guard down just yet. probably shouldn't do so. it's already been full of meteorological surprises for us, that's for sure. this is really just a taste of what's to come in the northeast and possibly worse. lester?
>> julie martin along north carolina 's outer banks tonight. julie, thanks.
