Hurricane Arthur Advisory #2

Hurricane Arthur Advisory #2  (7:00 AM 7/3/14) Tropical Storm Arthur has become a hurricane as of this morning.   The Outer Banks is under a state of emergency and a mandatory evacuation has been ordered for Hatteras Island effective at 5:00 AM this morning.   The only condition of the state of emergency is the evacuation of Hatteras Island. A hurricane warning remains in effect for the remainder of the Outer Banks including all of the areas where Outer Banks Blue Realty has rental properties. Hatteras Island is to the south of Outer Banks Blue’s property locations and no evacuation order is expected to affect any of Blue’s rental property inventory. Hurricane Arthur continues to travel along the expected track which will take the eye of the storm very close to Hatteras Island before moving out to sea to the north and east.  It is not expected that any north beach locations will have a mandatory evacuation ordered at this time. Guests currently staying with us should expect heavy rain and strong winds over the next 24 hours with conditions improving rapidly on Friday as the storm pulls away from the Outer Banks. Guests expecting to arrive this weekend should continue with their travel plans as normal.  Outer Banks Blue expects to be open for business as usual.
