The North Carolina Outer Banks, which is an alternate route of the Atlantic Coast route is under mandatory evacuation as of July 31, 2017 and should be closed for up to two weeks. This is because electrical power was cut off from the islands by damage during construction at the Bonner Bridge at Oregon Inlet. Only residents and property owners are being allowed on the Outer Banks. The closure is from Oregon Inlet in the north of the Outer Banks, going south through Hatteras Island and Ocracoke Island.

Notification of the closure is here: http://www.darenc.com/government/hatteras-island-power-outage-information
