NC Ferry System Suspends Southport-Fort Fisher Operations

Raleigh - High winds and strong rain from Tropical Storm Hermine forced the N.C. Department of Transportation's Ferry Division to suspend operations of the Southport-Fort Fisher ferry route.

The last ferry from Southport departed at 1:45 p.m., and the last ferry from Fort Fisher departed at 2:30 p.m. Crews safely completed their trips and secured the vessels for the duration of the storm.

All routes will resume operations as soon as it is safe to do so.
