I came home Sunday afternoon, after my sailing trip, and discovered significant beach erosion on Hatteras Island, at the village of Rondanthe. We were forced to drive through several inches of sea water where the ocean had breached the dunes (this was where the movie, Nights in Rodanthe, was filmed). Early yesterday Highway 12 was closed there. Webcam photos showed water pouring through the dunes onto the road. According to the Virginian-Pilot one house collapsed into the ocean. You can read about it here. The road was reopened later in the day.
