HARKERS ISLAND, N.C. (AP) — A man’s body has washed ashore on a North Carolina beach, authorities said.

The National Park Service said in a news release that the body of Gregory L. Miller, 65, of Durham washed up on the north end of South Core Banks on Monday.

Miller was staying at the Great Island Cabin Camp, which is operated by the park service on Cape Lookout National Seashore, the news release said.

Authorities have not said how Miller died. National Park Service rangers and the Carteret County Sheriff’s Office have begun an investigation, according to the news release.

The area had been under several flood and wind advisories due to a storm system moving through over the weekend. As of Monday, many spots along the Outer Banks were still reporting marine issues left by the storm, and portions of Highway 12 remained impassible due to flooding, especially during high tides.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation said dune repairs were not likely to begin until Tuesday.
