— Waves of up to eight feet washed sand over N.C. Highway 12 in Kitty Hawk over the weekend, knocking out about 100 yards of pavement, according to a report in The Outer Banks Voice.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation posted a notice online that NC-12 between White and Lindbergh avenues would be closed until about midday on Wednesday. A detour was posted to direct traffic.

The same area was washed out in 2012 by Hurricane Sandy.
