    Nice fish. I couldn't get out the inlet I had 7 men aboard. To many bodies to cross the sandbar in the event of an emergency. Plus it was the beginnings of a bachelor party

    Hope everyone stays safe over the next couple of days, I visit Ocean Isle beach every year for the last couple of years, so far I do not think that they received any damage there, but further north it seems to be a different story. and where I use to live and work in Pennsylvania, they are expecting severe flooding again with a possible mix of snow and rain.

    Sandy is getting ready to give obx a good douche. Already taking water from ocean side and high tide is 2 hours away yet. Then the wind is gonna switch and all that water has no where to go. Looking at possibly the same or worse flooding as Irene. This ain't pretty. Gonna go for a ride here in a bit , I'll try and get some pics

    9am Update from Dare County Emergency Management

    ( this is a basic list of things, remember we still are not out of danger from this storm and conditions can & will change)

    2-4’ of water on Hwy 12 from Frisco south to Hatteras Village, road is impassable.

    Soundside water coming in at Conners Supermarket in Hatteras Village

    Ocean water filling up the marshes east side of the Fire Dept in Hatteras

    People rescued from 1 house in Hatteras Village

    2’ of water in areas of Avon, with soundside water coming back in
    Hwy 12 South to Buxton is passable until right before entering Buxton

    Water on the roadway in Salvo both North & South, soundside water coming in at about 3’

    Mirlo Beach Area has 6’ with waves breaking over the road

    5’ feet of water at the KOA Campground

    Lots of water on the Beach Rd in Nags Head, areas in South Nags Head are closed, estimated 300 people staying in South Nags Head at this time

    Soundwater is coming back in Kill Devil Hills

    Numerous rescues in Kitty Hawk in the Lindbergh area, between the highways. Power being shut off to most of the area.

    Water on Duck Road in Southern Shores. No Ocean overwash. Soundwater should be coming back in over the next few hours.

    Soundwater coming back in slowly in Duck, rainwater on the road in a few areas. Dunes are taking a beating, and the possibility of loss of houses, no count on how many at this time.

    The Bonner Bridge/Oregon Inlet has railing damage, NC DOT will be inspecting as soon as it is safe, but it appears this is the only damage at this time

    The Temporary Bridge at Pea Island has no damage at this time, the roadways to the north & south have lost asphalt and has ocean overwash.

    Rescues are still going on in the Kitty Hawk/Lindbergh Area in between the Highways. The water in the area is 5' or higher, with overwash slapping at many of the houses.

    Also in from the Town of Kitty Hawk: The Kitty Hawk Police department reports that all parts of NC Highway 12 and all roads in between NC 12 and Highway 158 in the Town of Kitty Hawk are closed. Roads are impassable due to 2 to 4 feet of flood water, debris, sand and road damage. Everyone is advised to avoid this area and motorists need to utilize alternative routes.
