along the Outer Banks north of Cape Hatteras. Vulnerable
structures in the surf zone could sustain damage from the large
breaking waves. Highway 12 will likely become inundated and
potentially impassable in typically prone locations from both
ocean and sound side flooding. Sound side flooding could also
impact roads and properties adjacent to the Pamlico Sound and
its tidal creeks. Portions of Buxton... Frisco... Hatteras
Village... and Ocracoke Village could see 1 to 3 feet of
inundation above ground in spots.
