UPDATE: Highway 12 In Dare County Is Back Open

Ocean overwash from Noel closed parts of highway 12 on Hatteras Island between Oregon Inlet and Rodanthe Saturday morning.

The Department of Transportation worked all day to re-open the highway by six this evening.

The storm's affects sent sand on the highway blocking the only way on and off the island.
