Press Release:

    Good Morning Everyone,

    Our office is continuing to monitor Tropical Storm Ian as it progresses towards the southeast US. The current forecast has slowed Ian’s movement significantly, and it is now expected to impact the gulf coast of Florida as a hurricane next Thursday / Friday. The path of Ian has also shifted slightly west since our last update, keeping it over land longer as it moves north, and lessen the likelihood of it regaining strength over the Atlantic as it approaches North Carolina. While these recent developments are more favorable for our area, any impacts Ian may bring to us are still a long ways off in regards to forecast certainty. We encourage everyone to continue to monitor this system, and use the coming days to ensure that you are prepared for any threats Ian, or other storm systems may bring for the remainder of this Hurricane Season.

    Please see the email below and attached briefing from the NWS for more information. We will continue to pass along information as we receive it.


    As always, thank you all for what you do to keep Beaufort County informed, prepared and safe.


    Chris Newkirk
       Deputy Director,     Beaufort County Emergency Services

    1420 Highland Dr
    Washington, NC 27889

Everyone is either a member of a family, or has close association with a family that is forced to shelter a pathetic character, ignobly tolerated; a family member that exists only to be a monumental embarrassment on their best days; their worst days are horror stories.
No big changes with this update. The threats of heavy rain, strong winds, coastal flooding, and isolated tornadoes have not changed. The highest impacts for both heavy rain and the tornado threat will occur today.
Our overall impacts from a prolonged period of wind, rain and elevated waters from both Ian and other weather features, HAVE NOT CHANGED. We still expect a long duration of elevated waters through multiple high tide cycles.
