Hot Spot #5 - Hatteras Village Page Header

Hot Spot #5 begins near SR 1272 in Hatteras Village and extends 1.7 mile northward to the second National Park Service parking lot on the ocean side of NC 12. The erosion rate along this site is 3-4 ft/yr. Much like the Buxton/Canadian Hole site, the road is located in close proximity to the ocean, and there is a lack of dune vegetation, which allow this section to become flooded during storms.
