RODANTHE, N.C. (AP) — High tides and Hurricane Teddy are causing travel problems along North Carolina’s Outer Banks and threatens problems going up to Tidewater Virginia.
Portions of the primary road linking North Carolina’s Outer Banks barrier islands to the mainland were closed Sunday to traffic due to coastal flooding. North Carolina Highway 12 was impassable in long stretches on Hatteras and Ocracoke islands. Hurricane Teddy was several hundred miles off in the Atlantic, but the system was creating rough surf and dangerous rip currents.
The National Weather Service posted coastal flood warnings until Monday for Hatteras Island, heading north to Virginia Beach, Virginia.
