10:18 a.m. Sunday: N.C. 12 in Dare County, from south of the Oregon Inlet Bridge to Rodanthe, remained closed Sunday morning, according to the North Department Department of Transporation. There were reports of overwash on N.C. 12 in Kill Devil Hills and Kitty Hawk, as well as flooding in Rodanthe.

Additional overwash had been reported at areas further south, the NCDOT announced. In Hatteras, overwash had been reported at Buxton and north of Hatteras Village. Flooding was also reported at the village of Ocracoke.

Crews were surveying damage, but deteriorating conditions made assessment difficult, according to the NCDOT. There was a high chance that more water and sand would get on N.C. 12 during the evening hours, especially at high tide.

On Saturday night, the NCDOT's Ferry Division suspended all ferry operations because of rough weather. On Sunday morning, the Southport-Fort Fisher route resumed normal operations. All other routes remained suspended until conditions improve.
