Caption: Motorist trapped by Hurricane Isabel on North Carolina State Highway 12. The hurricane caused waves to surge over the highway and within a few hours of the photo being taken, the highway was destroyed. Hurricane Isabel hit the east coast of the USA on 18th September 2003, with the strongest winds centred on North Carolina. Hurricane Isabel was classified as a category 5 hurricane, the strongest type, a few days before it hit the coast. Although the hurricane had weakened by the time it reached land, its winds were still constant at over 160 kilometres per hour, with stronger gusts. Photographed in Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, USA.
