The Cape Hatteras National Seashore (CHNS) is warning on Sept. 14 that Hurricane Paulette may have impacts on the National Seashore including ocean overwash, life-threatening ocean swimming conditions and inaccessible beachfront areas.

Ocean overwash, particularly at high tide, may occur at the following Seashore locations:
  • South of the Basnight Bridge to the Pea Island Visitor Center,
  • Mirlo Beach area, on the northern edge of the tri-villages,
  • South of the Avon Pier along Ocean View Drive,
  • At the north end of Buxton,
  • Between Frisco and Hatteras Village,
  • Along Pole Rd, south of Ramp 55
  • Along the north end of Ocracoke island

Life-threatening rip currents and rough surf may occur at all oceanfront beaches at the Seashore. Dangerous beachfront conditions and inaccessible off-road vehicle routes may occur, particularly at high tide, on all beachfront areas and off-road vehicle routes.
The National Weather Service at Newport/Morehead City is also issuing a high rip current warning and advising people to stay out of the water in the northern Dare County beaches as well.

    What horrors will arrive in my mailbox tomorrow? So far, I have received five gaudy, mean-spirited, untruthful screeds from an outfit calling itself “Citizens for a Better NC Senate”. Seems to be one of those organizations with nothing but a post office box and no sense at all of decency. This isn’t politics; it’s defamation. The candidate who stands to benefit from these attacks should order a cease and desist immediately.
