Hurricane Florence Advisory #1

Outer Banks Preparing for Florence

At noon today The Dare County Emergency Control Group a mandatory evacuation of Hatteras Island was issued for residents and guests.   A follow up order of a mandatory evacuation of the rest of Dare County has been issued beginning at 7 AM tomorrow (9/11/18).   All visitors on the Outer Banks should make preparations to leave the area.

Hurricane Florence is a very strong and dangerous storm.

Florence path

Forecast models show Hurricane Florence to be on a track that would make landfall in the Wilmington, NC area, even if that is the case the Northern Outer Banks would experience tropical storm force winds, heavy rains, threat of tornadoes and significant Ocean over wash.

Even a slight change of course have the storm bring direct and catastrophic impacts to the Outer Banks.

While we regret the storm has impacted vacations, we urge all guests in residence now to heed warnings and exit the area as the local authorities have requested.  Safety is our top priority.

Guests that are set to arrive next weekend (9/14, 9/15, 9/16) should wait for contact from Outer Banks Blue before coming to the beach as access to the Outer Banks may be blocked depending on the damage done by the storm.  Your patience is appreciated.   We will be using a texting system to ensure you have up to date information from us regarding the impacts of the storm so please be sure we have your correct cell phone number to provide you updates regarding the storm.

Another update will be posted here at 9 AM on Tuesday, September 11th.
