Storm damages dock, closes several Morehead City streets

MOREHEAD CITY, N.C. (WITN) – Crews are cleaning up after a morning storm caused some damage in Morehead City.

The coastal storm damaged the town’s downtown docks, while flooding closed several streets.

High waters shut down Shepard Street between 4th Street and 12th Street. People were told to avoid that area until the waters recede.

The waters have also flooded first floor parking at the Bask Hotel on Shepard Street, while some homes on 10th Street are surrounded by water.

The hotel said it remains open, but wouldn’t say if they were able to get all the vehicles out of the garage in time.

At least one hotel guest said he couldn’t leave because his car was stuck in the garage.
