We have all heard the name, and while there are challenges in saying Isaias correctly there is no question that the Outer Banks will see some effects from this former Hurricane and current Tropical Storm.
Visitor Restrictions Lifted
Earlier today it was announced that the restriction of visitors to Currituck, Dare and Hyde Counties will be lifted beginning Saturday, May 16th.
Guests who are scheduled to arrive that weekend are being contacted by our reservations team and advising them that Outer Banks Blue looks forward to welcoming our valued guests to the beach and is prepared for your stay, and for your safety.
Welcome Back Soon
Like you we at Outer Banks Blue look forward to a return to some sort of normal routine. For us that means welcoming our valued rental guests into our vacation rental properties. While it is still too soon for our local authorities to open the Outer Banks to visitors it seems that things are turning in a positive way.
Good Monday from a soggy, warm, and perplexed Outer Banks community. Like all of you we wake up in uncertainty this morning, but eager to get back to normal.
Non-Resident Property Owners restricted from the OBX
Good evening. The Covid-19 outbreak has caused never before seen reaction from the authorities on the Outer Banks.
Tonight, effective at 10 PM non-resident property owners will not be allowed access to Dare County and Currituck County in an effort to minimize the spread of Covid-19.
Greetings from Outer Banks Blue, and from the Outer Banks,
Earlier today we received this announcement from the Emergency Control Group for Dare County:
Evacuation Order lifted at 4 PM Today for Dare County visitors
The emergency control group for the Dare County areas of the Outer Banks met early this morning and have lifted the evacuation order due to Hurricane Dorian effective at 4 PM today. This is only for guests arriving north of Oregon Inlet in the towns of Nags Head, Kill Devil Hills, Kitty Hawk, Southern Shores, and Duck.
Evacuation order for Guests still in place
The Emergency Control Group for the Outer Banks met this morning and determined that due to Hurricane Dorian the conditions on the beaches are not yet safe for guests to return. The mandatory evacuation order for all of Dare and Currituck Counties remains in effect at this time.
Dorian Gone – Clean up is Next
At this time a state of emergency and a mandatory evacuation continues for the Outer Banks in the wake of Hurricane Dorian. No entry to the Outer Banks is allowed at this time. Visitors are not expected to be allowed back on the beach on Saturday. Please plan accordingly.
Dorian Lashes the Outer Banks
A state of emergency and a mandatory evacuation order continues for all of the Outer Banks due to Hurricane Dorian. Access to the Outer Banks has been closed effective 8 PM on Thursday night and a curfew is in effect for the majority of the area which limits movement around the beaches.
