OCRACOKE ISLAND, N.C. (WAVY) — There will be an interruption in water service on Wednesday at some Cape Hatteras National Seashore facilities on Ocracoke Island.

Cape Hatteras National Seashore made the announcement Tuesday that the interruption would happen due to a water line leak in the northern region of Ocracoke Village.

  • Ocracoke Campground
  • Ocracoke Beach Access
  • Ocracoke Island Airport
