Tropical Storm Warning Now in Effect for Hatteras Island
At 5 PM the National Weather Service issued a Tropical Storm Warning for areas south of Oregon Inlet, including all Hatteras Island communities. A tropical storm warning means tropical wind conditions are expected somewhere in the warning area within the next 36 hours. 
Residents and visitors are encouraged to go ahead and prepare now by securing loose outdoor items before the winds increase. Wind impacts are expected to be mostly minor but there could be some damage to awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects may be blown about. Limbs may be broken off trees with a few snapped or uprooted.

Flooding rain is expected with 1 to 3 inches and some locally higher amounts that could lead to flash flooding on roadways.
