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.
Dorian tracking Northeast
A mandatory evacuation order and a state of emergency continue for all of the Outer Banks. All guests in residence have evacuated, and many residents have left the area as well in advance of the arrival of Hurricane Dorian.
Evacuation Order Expanded to Corolla
The Mandatory Evacuation order for visitors of the Outer Banks has now been expanded to include Currituck County which includes all properties in Corolla.
