North Carolina

DARE COUNTY, N.C. (WAVY) — Portions of North Carolina 12 have reopened after being closed Tuesday due to ocean overwash with the high tide.

The areas affected were NC 12 between the Basnight Bridge and Rodanthe, as well as on Ocracoke Island between the Pony Pen and the Ferry Terminal.

WAVY meteorologist Jeremy Wheeler says the area was at high tide before 10 a.m. but tides came down over the next few hours.

There wasn’t a full closure due to the weather system on Monday, but several areas had standing water.
