Beachgoers are told to temporarily avoid Rodanthe beach because of hazards

MANTEO, N.C. (WITN) — A small section of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore has been temporarily closed.

The Cape Hatteras National Seashore says house-related septic systems, wires, pipes, and broken concrete parking pads are near G.A. Kohler Court in Rodanthe.

The Seashore says similar hazards may be present in other areas of the beach adjacent to Rodanthe.

A month ago, people were told to avoid another beach on the Outer Banks because of hazards being exposed near the dunes.
