Coastal Storm Causing Issues on Bodie Island Shoreline, and
Other Seashore Updates for the Week of Oct. 26

The Cape Hatteras National Seashore (CHNS) announced several recent updates related to beach driving and recreational activities on Hatteras and Ocracoke Islands. Changes related to the National Seashore for the week of October 26 include the following:

         The National Park Service reported on Friday morning that the beach between off-road vehicle ramps 2 and 4 on Bodie Island has formed a cliff with the onset of a coastal storm, and is creating hazardous conditions for beach driving and walking. Another area of concern is around ramp 25, which is just south of Salvo. The deteriorating weather approaching the Outer Banks may create additional hazardous beach and ocean conditions, and visitors are advised to use caution.For beach and ocean condition updates, go to http://go.nps.gov/beachaccess.
