How wrong I was. On Saturday I reported that there was some overwash on Highway 12, but that it had virtually no effect on Ocracoke. Just yesterday I learned that the overwash was significant (though the road crew quickly repaired the damage to the dunes and re-opened the road). Dale was down at the north end on Saturday at high tide and took these photos. I think they speak for themselves. They are in no particular order, and you can click on them to view a larger image. Thank you Dale!
