Here a car lays flooded out along Old Oregon Inlet Road as the rains and ocean overwash flooded out stretches of the coastal highway. Fifty-plus miles of Highway 12, which leads South from Nags Head to Cape Hatteras and the Hatteras Island, was closed off to traffic due to the sand drifts that covered the coastal highway from ocean overwashes. The change of direction by Dennis brought high seas and winds that battered and flooded the coastal road. Photo by DAVE GATLEY/FEMA News Photo
