KILL DEVIL HILLS, NC (AP) — People on North Carolina’s Outer Banks are facing some flooding and damage from Hurricane Sandy, but emergency management officials say it could have been worse.

The Category 1 hurricane brought light rain and diminishing winds to the North Carolina coast Monday. Most counties reported no major damage or storm related injuries, although some roads were flooded.

Currituck County Emergency Management spokesman Randall Edwards says most of the roads in his county were passable. He says the skies were clearing Tuesday morning, though it was windy.

In Carteret County, Emergency Management spokeswoman Joann Smith says they have little damage. Smith says there’s standing water on some roads, but that’s it. Hyde County also reported no homes were flooded.

In other counties, emergency management officials are still assessing the damage.
