Flooded road remains closed on Hatteras Island

New York Daily News 2 weeks ago

North Carolina transportation officials have closed a flooded road on Hatteras Island after a storm brought heavy rain and high winds to parts of the Outer Banks and coast.

The state Department of Transportation said in a news release Sunday that workers have been removing wind-blown sand from N.C. 12, which remained closed between Marc Basnight Bridge and Rodanthe.

The state says officials haven't found any structural damage to the road, which partially closed on Saturday evening. But sand was covering it at several points between Oregon Inlet and Rodanthe. More flooding overwash was expected on the road at high tide on Sunday morning and Sunday night.

The storm brought sustained winds of up to 45 mph. It is expected to pull away from the coast by Monday.
