RODANTHE, N.C. — North Carolina officials are surveying damage caused by the remants of Tropical Storm Ida and working to fix the major north-south road on the southern end of the Outer Banks.

Gov. Beverly Perdue prepared to visit the Outer Banks on Tuesday morning and a washed-out stretch of N.C. 12 north of Rodanthe on Hatteras Island.

State road crews have been working since Friday removing water and debris from the quarter-mile stretch of road. They’ve created a temporary one-lane road around the mess for four-wheel drive vehicles heading to and from Nags Head.

The state also was ready to open before dawn Tuesday a temporary ferry route between Rodanthe and the Dare County mainland. The state also wants federal money to pay for cleanup and repairs.

Officials probe elk death in NC mountain park

CATALOOCHEE, N.C. — Rangers in the Great Smokey Mountains National Park say they expect to charge a man with killing an elk.

The Asheville Citizen-Times reported that a bull was found dead at the edge of a pasture in Cataloochee Valley on Friday.

Officials say someone wrote down a vehicle tag number and they are investigating a Granville County man. His name has not been released because no charges have been filed. Park spokesman Bob Miller said Monday the man said he shot the elk.

Elk had been common in the region until they were wiped out by hunting and habitat loss in the early 19th century. The park reintroduced 25 elk to the valley in 2001. The herd has since grown to about 100 and has become a popular park attraction.

A person convicted of poaching in a national park can face jail time and fines.
