Hurricane Florence ripped through the North Carolina coast - but not all the way through Old Glory.

A U.S. flag outside the Frying Pan Tower withstood the storm's punishment, and has now been auctioned off in aid of hurricane victims.

The flag was able to raise $10,900 at auction, with all proceeds going to the American Red Cross.

EBay Inc. said 25 people bid 96 times for the flag. It's not known who made the winning bid.
