Hatteras Wave Fest 2008, The "Sub-Tropical Storm" Aftermath
Well, it appears that the crazy is over, though the aftermath equates to closed roads where heavy ocean overwash has the islands closed off. Reports of a number of spots where sand and ocean water cover the roads from Pea Island to Buxton. Check the Dare County EM Bulletins for the latest info on road closures. The winds are currently light in a lull between the interaction of the weather systems surrounding the OBX; however, the forecast is for a return of easterly winds this afternoon and Friday. The bigger question is though, will we be able to get to the Cove to sail it??
Mirlo Beach at the northern end of Rodanthe. Plenty of sand on a closed road. If you are going to travel today north or south across the OBX, likely you will not be able to get much further than Oregon Inlet. source: Date County Web cams
