Cape Hatteras National Seashore expects to experience major to moderate oceanside flooding, ocean overwash on some beaches and roads, soundside flooding, gusty winds and dangerous rip currents through Wednesday.

Cape Hatteras National Seashore expects to experience major to moderate oceanside flooding, ocean overwash on some beaches and roads, soundside flooding, gusty winds and dangerous rip currents today through Wednesday.

A Coastal Flood Warning issued by the National Weather Service forecasts 2 to 4 feet of oceanside inundation and 2 to 3 feet of soundside inundation for some areas.

Ocean overwash is expected around high tides.

Large breaking waves of 8 to 12 feet are expected in the surf zone and officials say visitors should remain out of the water because of the dangerous surf conditions.

Annette is originally a Midwest gal, born and raised in Michigan, but with career stops in many surrounding states, the Pacific Northwest, and various parts of the southeast. She has been involved in the media industry in eastern North Carolina for more than three years. An award-winning journalist and mother of four, Annette moved to ENC to be closer to family – in particular, her two young grandchildren. It’s possible that a -27 day with a -68 windchill in Minnesota may have also played a role in that decision. In her spare time, Annette does a lot of toddler and baby cuddling, reading, designing costumes for children’s theater and producing the coolest Halloween costumes anyone has ever seen. She has also worked as a diversity and inclusion facilitator serving school districts and large corporations. It’s the people that make this beautiful area special, and she wants to share those stories that touch the hearts of others.
