Date: September 3, 2016

Facilities and services at Cape Hatteras National Seashore, Fort Raleigh National Historic Site, and Wright Brothers National Memorial will begin to reopen Sunday, September 4, post Tropical Storm Hermine.

Park staff will be making assessments starting early tomorrow morning. Facilities and services will reopen after assessments deem that the facility/service is safe and secure.

Access ramps and routes will be opening for off-road vehicle use on a rolling basis as each ramp and beach area is assessed. This will include assessment and reestablishing protection as needed for the approximately 120 sea turtle nests that existed prior to the storm.

Facility and service openings will be announced via park social media sites and/or press releases.

Dangerous rip currents and shore break will continue for several days as long period swell from Tropical Storm Hermine continues to impact the area.
