Raleigh - To protect the safety of its passengers and crew members, the N.C Department of Transportation's Ferry Division will continue to suspend operations at all crossings until weather conditions improve.
High winds continue to impact the coastal region, even as the center of Tropical Storm Hermine moves into the Atlantic Ocean. Early morning reports indicated sustained winds of 40 mph and gusts as high as 60 mph in some locations.
Ferry crews will conduct test runs when winds subside, which could be as early as Saturday afternoon. Clearance must be issued by the U.S. Coast Guard before operations may resume.
