Outer Banks avoids the wrath of Ian / Beach Driving & Red Flags

Kill Devil Hills, NC Beach Access

 The Outer Banks was predicted to be in the path of Hurricane Ian that devastated Florida. Luckily the Outer Banks was spared the wrath of Ian and woke Saturday to a beautifully sunny day.

However, high rip current ocean conditions continue throughout the Outer Banks as Red "No Swimming" Flags fly high along the OBX dune lines. Ocean conditions are Dangerous. Please stay out of the water, and keep your pets out of the water.

Saturday, October 1st, 2022, is the first day of permit driving on the beach in the Town of Kill Devil Hills, NC. For more information on Beach Driving Permits (October 1st, 2022, until April 30th, 2023) and temporary Beach Driving Permits (14 days), please see the Town's official website at:
