You would not know there is a storm coming by looking at traffic here in Kitty Hawk. The north bound traffic is heavy leaving and there are just as many south bound cars repacking the area. Serious smiley


RE: Traffic to Ocracoke




We had about 12 hours left on an evacuation and I called to see if we could get a quick Ocracoke trip in (5 P.M. evac) . So I called the ferry people and this very nice man with a huge southern drawl proceeded to ask me "whereabouts are you at now". I informed the kind gentleman that I was in Avon. "What you need to do is to get on Highway 12 and start heading north". His tone was so dry and so southern I can still here it from 25 years ago. They came thru town with the antique fire truck that day proclaiming on loudspeaker mandatory evacuation dangerous hurricane approaching. Well we had 8 kids ages 3 to 8 that year and half of them started crying cuz they were scared to death. So we moved up to my parents beach house in Delaware where the hurricane made landfall. I believe it was Bertha.
