Ferries Returning To Normal After Wednesday Winds

Most ferries are returning to normal runs, after high winds Wednesday forced many to stop operating.

The Hatteras route began its normal schedule at 5:00 a.m.; while Bayview-Aurora resumed regular operations at 7:00 a.m. The state says Swan Quarter will make its 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. runs to Ocracoke. After a temporary suspension Wednesday night, the Cherry Branch-Minnesott Beach route returned to normal Thursday morning.

The Cedar Island-Ocracoke route is running an adjusted schedule Thursday due to damage to the Motor Vessel Pamlico by Wednesday's storm. A wave broke the hinges on a bow door and maintenance crews are currently working to make repairs.

There will be a 10:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. run from Ocracoke to Cedar Island and a 2:00 p.m. run from Cedar Island to Ocracoke. Operations there will return to normal, as soon as the ferry is repaired.
