NC12 on Ocracoke closed, additional overwash possible on Monday

NCDOT NC12  Due to ocean overwash, NC12 on Ocracoke has been CLOSED between the ferry terminal and the NPS Pony Pens. Overwash is expected to continue through the day today. On Hatteras, NC12 is OPEN, but there are several areas of deep standing water due to rain. Please drive carefully.

    Why not abandon that section of road and have the ferry’s come in at Silver Lake instead? It seems like it’s a losing battle and a waste of money to keep fighting the Ocean.
