Hatteras Light has gone dark (for a moment)



For 148 years, the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse has kept ships clear of the Graveyard of the Atlantic. In all that time the iconic striped structure has weathered untold storms, eroding beaches and a half-mile move inland.

But it’s never gone dark for as long as it has this winter.

The light atop the 198-foot lighthouse has been turned off for about a month now, the Outer Banks Voice reported, after January storms caused damage. With its vintage mechanism, parts have to be custom made.
