Ouch! That's why I never plan an in-season round trip to the Tidewater Area Friday thru Sunday. You just never know what's going to happen.

I look at the map every Saturday to see what the traffic is like, as we will be there in 4 weeks. Then I saw this! Yikes! Hope everyone is ok.

How do I find that map? Does one also show all of RT 12?

Go to google maps and type in "Duck, NC" (or wherever you want to look). Once the map displays, there should be a menu in the top left corner. Choose "traffic". You can zoom in or out and look at any road you want and it will show the traffic.

Googlemaps with traffic turned on. I check it all the time to get a sense for vacation traffic on 95, 64, OBX, and across the MD Bay Bridge. You can see any and all roads in the nation.

Ouch! I hope everyone if OK! That is really going to mess up some vacation plans. Looks like some of those guys were planning on driving on the beach and fishing. Their loaner from the insurance probably won't be that capable Confused smiley

Click on "cameras" on menu at left

You can't use the old link with tims. That no longer works. Use Click to follow link... and turn on the cameras - must turn them on each visit.

So if you click on the link with tims in my post it doesn't work? I've got that one, and the Mirlo beach tims one bookmarked on my phone and they both work fine. The screenshot in the earlier post was from the tims site and has worked all day. Here's a shot from Mirlo just taken. I know the main tims page that shows the coast and all the cams is giving an error now, but seems to me that if the specific cam is bookmarked you can go directly there without issue.

Sad. that is the worst feeling. vehicle out of commission and being out of state on vacation...I agree with the above poster. Our rental was not a 4 x 4 last year when our only truck broke down on vacation.....then the towing as well. I hope there were no kids involved bwcause thats a lasting memory. We are taking 2 trucks for the beach this year. My SIL said never again alone. We had a dog and a baby.

It asks me to log in, never had to do that before. Do you log in? Can you send the url of where you select the camera? I see the bridge on your link but can't figure out how to get to where you select a camera.
