Oregon Inlet Gets Dredge Funding

Nearly $9 million dollars has been funded for the dredging of Oregon Inlet and its channels.  Since Hurricane Sandy the Outer Banks inlet is only 2-3 feet in depth; making it nearly impossible to pass through due to shoaling.  Commercial fisherman need 8 feet or more in order to keep their businesses operating.
