Outer Banks Weather Conditions Demand Caution

Sand and Water on Road - Cape Hatteras National Seashore

Strong winds, rain, and ocean over-wash have left parts of North Carolina Highway 12 covered in sand and water. However, at the time of this post, North Carolina Highway 12 does remain open and passable. 

Currently, a road sign flashes the message "REDUCE SPEED" and " SAND AND WATER ON ROAD" as you enter the Cape Hatteras National Seashore beside the Whalebone Junction Information Center.

Please use caution when traveling on the Outer Banks today and stay aware of your surroundings. Expect delays as traffic speeds will slow to accommodate safe travel.
