Hurricane Maria is tracking up the east coast, and to ensure you are aware of the latest information from the coast we wanted to provide you a brief update from the beach.
Traffic flow to the Outer Banks is still restricted
As of 9:30 this morning there is unlimited access onto the Outer Banks. The Highway Patrol lifted the road block at the Wright Memorial Bridge and visitors are being permitted access to the Dare County beaches. The town of Kitty Hawk remains under a state of emergency due to flooding and power outages. Curfews have been lifted in the area.
Storm’s track changes dramatically overnight
It is business as usual here on this Wednesday morning on the Outer Banks, but just like everyone else on the east coast our eyes are pointed towards Hurricane Matthew and the proposed storm track of the system. As of 9 AM the storm was a category 4 hurricane with winds in excess of 115 MPH, and the storm location just south of the Bahamas.
Another 2 Fer Monday!
This week’s Memory Monday Photo Submission Contest brings us two more great photo memories of Outer Banks’ Vacations.

Planning a Self-Guided Coastal Lighthouse Tour on the Outer Banks
Way back in colonial days, lighthouses were built to warn sailors of dangerous coastlines – whether it be rocky shores that would tear the hulls of ships or dangerous shoals (like those in the Outer Banks) that caused ships to run aground or wreck.

Sunset on the Outer Banks!
This week’s Memory Monday Photo submission comes to us from Daniel Werner of Rutledge, Pennsylvania who stayed with Outer Banks Blue Realty Services this past September in “B’s Dream” in the Crown Point subdivision in Corolla. Daniel is a long time customer of Outer Banks Blue having stayed with us for several years, and we are taken by his beautiful sunset pictures taken this past summer at Heritage Park in Corolla.
