Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Update (9/11) — Tropical Outlook (9/8 – 9/14)

Press Release:

    Heavy Rain Threat Continues

    Localized heavy rain is possible right through the weekend. If your area gets under one of these areas of rain, flooding is possible especially in poor drainage areas due to the high rate of rainfall.

    Distant Storm Paulette Expected To Impact Us

    ***Please help us message this threat to those visiting the beaches over the next week ***

    Please note that while Tropical Storm and predicted to be Hurricane Paulette is expected to pass well to our east (toward Bermuda), we expect impacts from this distant storm. A long period swell from this distant storm will produce life-threatening rip currents, large waves and rough surf. Ocean over wash and coastal flooding is also possible, especially from Cape Lookout north. The timing would be sometime early next week.

    The Time To Prepare Is Now

    Lastly, as you can see from the graphic, right on time with the peak of hurricane season, the tropics are quite active. This is a good reminder that folks should ensure they have both a hurricane kit and plan. For resources visit our hurricane preparedness page.
