    Hatteras Island is arguably one of the most beautiful locations in the country. It is also of historical, cultural, and economic importance to the State of North Carolina. However, over the past 20 years this island has been held hostage by the Southern Environmental Law Center (SELC) through their continued lawsuits over the construction of a replacement to the Herbert C. Bonner Bridge which spans the Oregon Inlet. This bridge is the only link that residents and visitors have to safely and efficiently travel to and from Hatteras Island. The Bonner Bridge has been intermittently closed over the past few...

Hatteras residents headed north this morning for shopping or appointments and vendors and contractors headed south, unaware that their return route was about to be cut off. Hatteras Island residents waiting at the north end of the bridge this afternoon in hopes of returning said...

    Unearthed photos a gift to historians on OBX Manteo. N.C. A collection of old photos, some not seen before by local historians, shows wreckage in Hatteras after the big hurricane of 1899.

Many of them depict the aftermath of the August 1899 hurricane known as San Ciriaco that killed hundreds of people along the coast and in Puerto Rico and wrecked at least 13 ships along the North Carolina...
