Published 12:20 pm Monday, July 30, 2018

Due to heavy rainstorms over the weekend, many roads in Dare and Currituck counties have standing water on them, in some cases that water is quite deep, the North Carolina Department of Transportation said in a news release.

The town of Kill Devil Hills reported deep water at the following locations Monday afternoon:

There is approximately six inches of water on NC 12/Virginia Dare Trail between Holly Street north to Clark Street.

Water is also standing on Wrightsville Avenue from Clark Street north to Neptune Drive.

“Please stay out of these areas, if possible.  If you must enter an area with standing water, please drive slowly and do not create a wake with your vehicles,” the town said in a news release. “Water displaced by moving vehicles can wash into homes and businesses and cause property damage.”

NCDOT reported high water on the following routes:

NC12 South of Bonner to Hatteras Village has many areas of standing water, but traffic is getting through slowly.

NC12 On the beach road in KDH has areas of very deep water, but traffic is getting through slowly.

NC12 Duck to Corolla has many areas of standing water.

Crews are out clearing inlets and inspecting systems, most all roadways have some standing water.

If you must travel today, please be aware of these conditions and drive with extreme caution throughout the Outer Banks.

More rain is expected through Tuesday.
