This is the site where NC 12 at the north end of Rodanthe on Hatteras Isalnd, NC was washed out by Hurricane Irene, photographed Sunday, August 28, 2011. Several hundred yards of roadway in what is known as the Mirlo Beach area are gone and some local residents believe a new inlet from the ocean to the sound cuts across the island.
