Hot Spot #6 - Ocracoke Title Header

Hot Spot #6 begins 0.5 mile south of the Hatteras ferry terminal and continues 4.0 miles southward on Ocracoke Island. The erosion rate is 8-10 ft/yr. Like several of the other sites, the road is located in close proximity to the ocean. The dunes in this area have also eroded, allowing sand and water to cover the road during storms.
