The Cape Hatteras National Seashore posted this report at about noon of Sept. 18.
Standing water is already present in multiple areas along NC-12 including near the visitor center on Pea Island, in the tri-villages, and at the north end of Ocracoke Island. Road conditions are expected to worsen due to large swells from distant Hurricane Teddy, northeasterly winds, and high astronomical tides.
Life threatening rip currents and rough surf are occurring at all ocean-front beaches at the Seashore.
