Ella Clark, left, and her family look up and wave at the news helicopters circling Nags Head, N.C. as her family prepares to leave the Outer Banks before Hurricane Irene hits on Friday, Aug. 26, 2011 in Nags Head. The Clarks own the house but live in Virginia and were cutting their vacation a few days short to head back home. With four young children they didn't want to take the risk of staying and then deal with the possibility of no water or power.
