how do you solve a problem like Maria?

You evacuate Hatteras and Ocracoke Islands, for starters. Moving slowly parallel to the coast, Hurricane Maria will impact the Outer Banks with high surf and ocean over wash. Concerned about visitor safety, Dare and Hyde Counties ordered visitor evacuations for Ocracoke and Hatteras Islands. The evacuations do not apply to the northern Outer Banks.

“High wind for up to three days threatens to leave N.C. 12 on Hatteras Island impassable and shut down ferry service to Ocracoke Island as Hurricane Maria approaches the North Carolina coast.

Ocracoke is already under a mandatory evacuation order and Dare County has told visitors to leave Hatteras Island right away.”


As Hurricane Maria slogs her way up the coast, the visitor evacuations have been ordered for Ocracoke and Hatteras Islands, as the Outer Banks Voice reports.
