Hatteras and Ocracoke islands woke up this Saturday morning to no power, after a yet-to-be determined issue with the high voltage lines that bring electricity to the island.

Cape Hatteras Electric Cooperative and Tideland EMC are the providers of electricity to the areas south of Oregon Inlet, and get their power from Dominion-managed transmission lines that run to a small transfer station across from the Oregon Inlet Campground.

The National Park Service is alerting visitors to their sites and campgrounds that services are being affected.
