Contact: Outer Banks Group, 252-473-2111 ext. 148
The National Weather Service has issued a tropical storm watch that includes all of Cape Hatteras National Seashore from Ocracoke Island to town of Nags Head, NC. In preparation for potential impacts to the beaches of Cape Hatteras National Seashore, the National Park Service anticipates strong surf conditions, with dangerous rip currents and possible ocean overwash and the potential for flooding in some areas, such as beach access ramps. Park visitors are encouraged to stay out of the water while the effects of Tropical Storm Danny pass by the National Seashore areas.
