Boil water advisory lifted on Ocracoke

OCRACOKE, NC (WITN) Officials say it is now safe to drink the water on Ocracoke after a water system failed due to Hurricane Dorian.

The boil water advisory that has been in place for the past week has now been lifted by the Ocracoke Sanitary District.

Hyde County officials say the advisory was announced after a faulty generator caused the failure last Thursday.

The island was ravaged by a significant storm surge as Hurricane Dorian moved through North Carolina.
