Location and pictures of the NC 12 breaks, in Google Maps
Hurricane Irene did less damage than expected -- unless you experienced any of that damage yourself. NC 12, the lone road connecting the towns on Hatteras Island and the rest of the barrier islands of the Outer Banks, or OBX,
in eastern North Carolina, was cut in two places and overwashed in another spot. Ocracoke Island
, accessible only by ferry, was overwashed, as well. The state vows to repair
, even if it's inevitable that it will happen again.
