Kitty Hawk, N.C. (WTKR) - The remnants of Tropical Storm Ana pushed through the Outer Banks of North Carolina on Monday.

Much of the storm activity was marked by gusty winds and periods of heavy rainfall.

In Kill Devil Hills, rain water covered some portions of the Beach Road and trash cans were blown over by the wind, but by and large any damage was superficial.

In Kitty Hawk, NCDOT officials were keeping a close eye on a rebuilt section of NC12 around Milepost 4.

The northbound lane of roadway there collapsed onto the beach earlier this month after a stalled coastal storm wiped out a protective dune and rolling waves carved into the pavement.

The rebuilt section of roadway reopened to traffic last week and held-up during Monday's surf and rain from Ana's remnants.

While many on the Outer Banks stayed inside Monday, some did venture out, including Patrick Kovack and his girlfriend who were visiting from Michigan.

"I enjoy coming down and seeing Mother nature in all her glory whether it's bright sunshine or wind and waves," he told NewsChannel 3's Todd Corillo.

Many though were just looking forward to the forecast of sunnier skies later in the week.
