How Far Inland Do I Have to Live to Avoid a Hurricane in North Carolina?

Answer

If you want to live in North Carolina, regardless of how far inland you are, you will still be in the danger zone of feeling a hurricane's wrath. Some hurricanes are very powerful (category 4 or 5), and can travel a long distance (several states) before its fury begins to dissipate. There have been hurricanes that hit in Louisiana, and travel all the way to Missouri, knocking out power, causing deadly floods, billions of dollars in damage, and claiming many lives.
