Dare County Prepares for Dangerous Conditions; Road Closures May Become Necessary With Heavy Rain and Wind

From Dare County

October 7, 2016 12:30 p.m. 

The Dare County Control Group met this morning to review the latest information from the National Weather Service concerning dangerous conditions that are expected this weekend due to Hurricane Matthew.

Dare County is now under a Tropical Storm Warning. According to the Weather Service, the combination of abnormally high coastal water levels, storm surge, and extremely heavy rainfall is expected to cause a dangerous and life threatening flooding event for the Outer Banks. The National Weather Service has indicated that we should expect ocean overwash in vulnerable areas. We should also expect soundside flooding of up to 4 feet above ground in areas prone to flooding, primarily on Hatteras Island.

The National Weather Service is highly discouraging travel across northeastern North Carolina this weekend.  As conditions deteriorate, road closures and travel restrictions are anticipated in Dare County, particularly for portions of Highway 12 on Hatteras Island.

Because of dangerous travel conditions, visitors throughout Dare County are encouraged to depart today (Friday) and travel to the area should be postponed until conditions improve. For information regarding road conditions and closures, visit tims.ncdot.gov/tims. For the most up to date information regarding the status of NC12, visit www.facebook.com/NCDOTNC12.

The latest forecast also calls for tropical storm force winds with potential for downed trees and power outages.  Vulnerable homes and buildings near tall trees have the potential for downed trees falling on them.

By 5:00 pm today, all visitor services and facilities at Cape Hatteras National Seashore, Fort Raleigh National Historic Site, and Wright Brothers National Memorial will be closed until further notice.

Dare County Emergency Management strongly urges all residents and visitors to heed the following warnings –

  • If you are in a low-lying area, or an area prone to flooding, relocate to higher ground. This is especially important for those with special medical needs.
  • Residents in low-lying areas should take action to protect personal property by moving to higher ground. This includes vehicles.
  • Complete your disaster preparedness kits and other safety preparations now.
  • Stay out of the ocean due to the high threat of rip current.
  • Monitor trusted sources of information for life saving alerts. NOAA Weather Radio is an excellent resource for emergency alerts.

Heavy Rain and Flash Flooding Expected this Weekend

Latest News from Dare County:

October 6, 2016  2:30 p.m. 

No Travel Restrictions in Place or Anticipated with Matthew’s Current Track

The latest forecast from the National Hurricane Center continues to keep Hurricane Matthew south of the Outer Banks. Due to some uncertainty in the track for several days out, the local state of emergency declarations will remain in place to allow local officials the ability to implement protective actions should they become necessary. There are currently no travel restrictions or evacuation orders in place for Dare County and none are anticipated if the current track holds its course.

Locally heavy rainfall and flash flooding are the primary concerns associated with the storm as it moves up the east coast. The most recent forecast indicates rainfall totals from 4 to 8 inches. With water levels already running above normal, it will not take much for low lying areas to receive nuisance type flooding.  Very saturated ground may lead to downed trees and scattered power outages when winds increase late Saturday afternoon into Sunday.

There will be minor to moderate storm surge flooding in areas prone to erosion and ocean overwash. The current forecast indicates that areas along the Pamlico Sound from Buxton south will be most prone to soundside flooding.

As heavy rain and winds begin to impact the area, driving conditions may become hazardous, especially along NC 12 and other roadways prone to flooding. If you encounter water covering the road – turn around, don’t drown. It is never safe to drive or walk through flood waters because you will not know the depth of the water or the condition of the ground underneath. This is especially true at night, when vision is more limited.

The threat of rip currents will remain high through the weekend indicating that the surf is dangerous for swimmers of all levels.

County Continues to Monitor Hurricane Matthew

Dare County Control Group Continues to Closely Monitor Hurricane Matthew

10/5/16:
The Dare County Control Group met again this morning to review Hurricane Matthew. The current forecast from the National Hurricane Center shows the storm tracking further south than previously predicted and away from Dare County. While this is an improved forecast for our area, it is too early to know for sure that this latest track will continue to hold its course.

Because of the uncertainty of the forecast, residents and visitors are urged to remain vigilant and continue to closely monitor the storm because even moderate changes in the projected path could lead to significant impacts for Dare County. The state of emergency declaration will remain in place in case conditions change and protective measures become necessary.

Dare County is already experiencing dangerous rip currents and rough surf conditions that are expected to continue. Dare County Emergency Management strongly urges everyone to stay out of the ocean.

Dare County Public Works is operating on a regular trash collection schedule. Because of the winds that are anticipated in the coming days, residents are asked to roll up and secure their garbage cans as quickly as possible after pickup to reduce the risk of injury and property damage.

A State of Emergency has been issued for Dare County and all six towns following a meeting of the Dare County Control Group Tuesday afternoon. The emergency declarations are effective immediately and allow local officials to implement protective measures – including issuance of mandatory evacuation orders – that may be necessary as the hurricane approaches.

While under the state of emergency, no reentry passes will be issued by Dare County Emergency Management.

Hurricane Matthew is a strong, dangerous storm that, on its current track, is expected to bring significant to catastrophic impacts to Dare County. It is important for residents and visitors to stay informed and take necessary steps now to protect property. Assemble or restock your supply kit with essential supplies to sustain your family and your pets for up to three days. Preparedness information is available at www.readync.org.

Tropical Storm Hermine

Update from Dare County Public Relations:

Make Final Storm Preparations and Travel Decisions Before Storm Conditions Arrive:

A Tropical Storm Warning and Flash Flood Watch remain in effect for all areas of Dare County. A variety of impacts are expected as Tropical Storm Hermine approaches, including possible flash flooding, tropical storm force winds, minor to moderate storm surge and beach erosion.

Outside weather preparations should be completed as soon as possible before weather conditions worsen. Now is also the time to complete all other emergency preparations. Guests planning to depart the area on Saturday should consider leaving today before weather conditions deteriorate or postponing travel until Sunday. Be sure to check the forecast for your travel route and destination before departing.

Tropical storm force winds are expected to arrive late Friday or early Saturday and continue through late Saturday afternoon. Residents and visitors should be prepared to stay indoors, away from windows, during what is anticipated to be a fast-moving storm.

Widespread rainfall of 5 to 8 inches is anticipated with isolated amounts of up to 10 inches. Prolonged heavy rainfall could result in flash flooding. These conditions make travel hazardous, especially along NC 12 and other roadways prone to flooding. If travel is necessary, use caution and expect delays. If you encounter water covering the road – turn around, don’t drown. It is never safe to drive or walk through flood waters because you will not know the depth of the water or the condition of the ground underneath. This is especially true at night, when your vision is more limited.

There will be minor to moderate storm surge flooding of 1 to 3 feet above ground levels in some areas. The current forecast indicates that areas along the Pamlico Sound from Hatteras Village north will be more prone to sound side flooding. The National Hurricane Center has released storm surge inundation maps for Tropical Storm Hermine. They may be accessed at http://tinyurl.com/j7lbsrq.

The threat of rip currents will remain high through the weekend indicating that the surf is dangerous for swimmers of all levels.
