Dominion Virginia Power expects to have information by 10 am Thursday on when overall restoration should be completed in areas affected by this week’s severe winter storm. Restoration work continues with service returned to 101,600 of the 215,000 customers who lost power because of the snow, rain and high winds. However, weather conditions continue to be challenging and additional storm outages are possible overnight.
High winds are causing sound side flooding along N.C. 12, and caused the Hatteras-Ocracoke ferry route to stop operations earlier today.
Currently, NC 12 has high water in both directions in areas from Rodanthe to the southern end of Dare County, and is open to high-clearance, four-wheel-drive vehicles only. The Dare County Sheriff’s Office has set up a checkpoint in the parking lot of the Pea Island National Wildlife Center just south of the temporary bridge. The road could become completely impassable at high tide.
The lanes are not expected to re-open until the storm system moves out of the area and the water recedes. That is expected to be mid-morning tomorrow. The ferry will begin operating as soon as conditions are safe.
Crews just closed the CBBT both directions. Wind gusts are now on third island pushing almost 90-100 mph. Lanes are closed in both lanes north and south indefinitely.
As soon wind gusts get below 70-75 mph, they will reopen
