Impending Nor'easter Lashes Outer Banks

Weather is getting rougher as a nor'easter weather system moves toward the battered Outer Banks.

The National Weather Service says coastal flooding, rain and wind gusts UP TO 40 MPH are expected Sunday. The state transportation department suspended operations of the Currituck Sound ferry Sunday because strong, steady wings have pushed water toward the mainland and resulted in extremely low water.

The DOT is opening and closing four-wheel-drive traffic along a battered section of N.C. Highway 12 on Hatteras Island as high tides threaten the asphalt ribbon and back away. The highway was badly damaged by Superstorm Sandy

The weather service office in Newport says heavy weather conditions could last until Wednesday evening.
