Back To Normal

The Cape Hatteras National Seashore has resumed normal operations after Tropical Storm Hanna pushed winds and heavy rain through North Carolina.

Seashore Superintendent Mile Murray said all facilities had been reopened to visitors on the Outer Banks by Sunday afternoon.

Beaches from Oregon Inlet to Ocracoke Island were reopened for off-road-vehicle driving, except areas restricted because of closures to protect endangered birds or turtles.

The park said it had minimal damage, including a few lost shingles, scattered debris and loss of some beach signs and fencing.

Park officials had closed facilities last week as Hanna approached the North Carolina coast. The Ocracoke, Frisco and Oregon Inlet campgrounds reopened as did the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse.
