SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — In a story July 31, 2020, about tropical weather, The Associated Press misspelled the name of a North Carolina island. It is Ocracoke, not Oracoke. It also erroneously reported that an evacuation order from the island was to begin Saturday evening. Visitors were ordered to leave starting Friday, and residents and property owners starting Saturday morning.
