— T-shirts are usually a hot commodity after any hurricane, and Ophelia is no different.

Souvenir shops in the Outer Banks are now selling "I Survived Ophelia" T-shirts.

The T-shirts show the North Carolina coast and a drawing of the storm swirling in the Atlantic Ocean as well as the date and year of the storm.

Store managers said they expect the T-shirts to be big sellers.
