The Hatteras-Ocracoke ferry operations have been suspended due to low visibility from heavy fog as of Saturday morning at 8:30 a.m., per an update from the North Carolina Department of Transportation’s Ferry Division.
Ferry service will resume once weather conditions improve. According to the National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City office, areas of fog across Eastern North Carolina are expected to lift by mid-to-late morning as clouds build in and shower chances increase.
