    Hurricane Florence's impact has seemingly been felt by everyone. Local fishermen are no different.

    The storm, which hit Sept. 13-14 of last year, has had some long-term impact on the commercial fishing industry. Some of those impacts may still be unknown for years to come. Some fishermen are still rebuilding while others had to take jobs in areas like construction until they could return to what they love.
