Ferry service resumes to Hatteras Island
RODANTHE, N.C. -- The state Transportation Department says ferry service providing a way home to Hatteras Island residents who evacuated because of Hurricane Irene has resumed.
The ferry between Stumpy Point and Rodanthe was temporarily shut down on Monday because of damage to a ramp.
But supervisor Keith Matthews said service resumed Tuesday morning.
Residents of Hatteras Island are being allowed to return home this week. Emergency officials had planned a staggered return by village but said Sunday that services and infrastructure had been repaired enough to allow all to return.
