Tropical Storm Isaias

Press Release:

    Our office is currently monitoring the progression of Tropical Storm Isaias. Isaias is located 125 miles west of Puerto Rico, and currently forecasted to travel along the Eastern US as a Tropical Storm / Category 1 Hurricane through the weekend. This system will begin to impact Eastern NC tomorrow with increased RIP currents along our coast. Other impacts such as rain, wind, storm surge etc. would most likely occur Sunday night / Monday. Specifics pertaining to these impacts cannot be forecasted with certainty at this point. Please see the email below and attached briefing from the National Weather Service (NWS) for additional details.

    We are now approaching the peak of what has already been an active hurricane season. As such, we encourage everyone to have a plan for how your family will respond to the threat of not only this storm, but others as well. This plan should ensure that everyone is as self sufficient as possible, and include and / or address the following.

  • Preparing Your Home and Property
    • Secure outside items such as furniture and other decor.
    • Ensure adequate shelter for outside pets.
  • Sheltering In Place
    • Have enough food, water, medications and other provisions for five to seven days for each person and pet.
    • Have a plan that would allow for the use of these provisions in the event of power outages or other infrastructure failures.
  • Evacuations:
    • Have a plan to evacuate to a safe location if necessary. This plan should not rely on traditional public shelters. Preference should be given to locations that are beyond the expected impact area. This may include staying with family, friends or acquiring a hotel / motel room. Again, your primary plan for evacuation should not rely on the use of public shelters. Public shelters should be a last resort.

    Additional guidance pertaining to preparation efforts can be found at and by following us on Facebook at

    Our next update is scheduled for 6:30pm today.

    Please assist us by sharing this message with your family, friends and throughout your communities.
