So,how are conditions as this tropical storm blows through?

I am curious and wondering how conditions are on 12 south on Hatteras with this tropical storm coming through so early in the season.

I know that there are temporary bridges between Bonner Bridge and Rodanthe and I am hoping those of you who are there now can update us who are coming soon.

We were scheduled to be in Rodanthe August 29, 2011 for vacation but Irene fixed that.

Now scheduled to come June 3 - 10 and figured that we would be ahead of the worst of hurricane season, by over a month at least.

So, if you are there, what's it like now?

Thanks!

This will be a real non-event, nothing to hardly even worry about. They are predicting 40 mph winds and some rain for a day. Snore, we have that several times a year with nor east'rs. It could break up and not even get that much wind so worry about something else and not Beryl.

I'm in Emerald Isle this weekend, south of the OBX, and it's been a bit windy and the surf has been rough, but it's been fine really. Very little rain and lots of fun in the sun.

So glad it is a non-event this time.

We have been in Rodanthe for nor'easters and one smaller hurricane and it can be surprising how much erosion can happen from a "small" storm.

We watched a 20 foot high dune in front of the family home disappear foot by foot in one weekend from a nor'easter in 1994.

And after last year we don't take it for granted that the roads will be just fine anymore.

Thanks again everyone... :)

Nothing here at all today. Yesterday was beautiful, took out the jet ski and went from Kitty Hawk up to Corolla and back. They say maybe some rain Wednesday as it passes.
