The Frying Pan Tower is located more than 30 miles off the coast of North Carolina and is out of sight of land.

The Frying Pan Tower is formerly the U.S. Coastguard Frying Pan Light Station, situated at the end of Frying Pan Shoals, 32 miles south of Bald  Head Island.

Today, the Frying Pan Tower serves as one of the world's most unique bed and breakfasts, and an adventurous Frying Pan resident is sharing YouTube videos as Arthur makes its way toward the North Carolina coast.

It appears this guy is going to ride out the storm; as long as he continues to post videos, we'll post them here. Be sure to check back.

Check them out below.

So this is what 99mph feels like
