U.S. Rep. Walter Jones, R-N.C. is asking President Obama include more than $30 million to clear North Carolina waterways in a funding request to cover damage caused along the East Coast by Hurricane Sandy.

Jones’ request includes $9 million for Oregon Inlet, and $2 million for the Rollison Channel used by ferries between at Hatteras and Ocracoke.

He would also like to see $600,000 for the Silver Lake ferry channel at Ocracoke and $150,000 for the Stumpy Point-Rodanthe emergency ferry channel
