N.C. 12 on Hatteras Island. (NCDOT)

As Tropical Storm Idalia speeds offshore south of the Outer Banks, Hatteras has recorded more than 5 inches of rain, and winds gusting up to 50 mph were being clocked at Hatteras Inlet this morning.

So far, no major problems have been reported as conditions have been similar to a strong winter storm or nor’easter. N.C. 12 on Hatteras Island is often threatened around high tide, which was at 8:06 a.m. today.

Rain gauges monitored by volunteers with NOAA’s Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network showed that 5.3 inches of rain had fallen at Hatteras Village by 7 a.m. In Manteo, the reading was 3.26 inches. Rainfall was estimated at 2 inches on Kill Devil Hills. Wave heights were up to 11 feet, according to NOAA buoys along the coast.

Soundside flooding could be a problem when the wind shifts from out of the north later in the day.

Coastal Flood and Tropical warnings are still in effect.

The center of Idalia was about 65 miles southeast of Wilmington, N.N. with top sustained winds at 60 mph. It was moving east-northeast at 20 mph.

  • Steven

    No issues in Rodanthe, drove a mile to work at 6am, road is clear.
    Just some rain and wind, something we usually get every week during the on-seasons. (summer is the off-season for us residents)
