It is blowing hard and the ocean is getting nasty. I would not come here to where I am, I certainly would not go where you are going today.

Yup, dune already breached on Ocean View. Not surprising in the least, and it'll only get worse.

Look up the Mirlo webcam to see whether s-turns is underwater or not. I believe high tide is next around 7pm today, Saturday...

I wish you the best of luck!

If the S curves aren’t completed flooded and closed with 50 mph winds at high tide this evening I will be absolutely stunned.

Just read on FB that 12 will close at 5pm from the Bonner to Rodanthe.
They’re doing their best with the road but the winds, rain, blowing sand are creating nearly impossible travel. Visability very poor

You probably aren't going to make it before the road totally shuts down. Try for a hotel on the north side of the Bonner for the night and then scoot across next time they open it.

Plenty of information around and lots of advice being given. I wish you luck, but it really sounds like this is your first time and that's just a recipe for a bad experience. You'll soon find out why...

Save your lodging receipts. If you have trip insurance you may be able to file a claim since you can’t get to your destination.

Oh yeah, and charge your phones and other electronics just in case power goes down
