Two hours before high tide and the ocean waters were creeping over the dunes in places and running across NC 12, the highway on Hatteras Island.
There is a lot of concern about sound side flooding today, the waters of Pamlico Sound being pushed up over the barrier island. Some forecasts last night had sound slide flooding from four to seven feet. We'll see. Not much rain this morning and from the looks of the radar we may be out of the rain bands from the hurricane.
To all my friends in Maryland, Delaware and New Jersey, be safe and stay dry.
