The Town of Topsail Beach is continuing to monitor the track of Tropical Storm Hermine. The forecast is calling for conditions to deteriorate starting early Friday morning and the storm is expected to be out of the area by mid-morning Saturday.Estimated rainfall amounts of 4”-8” is possible, as well as some localized flooding. Winds of 35MPH to 45MPH are expected, gusting to 55MPH.
As of now, the Town expects to remain on a normal operating schedule. We ask citizens to prepare accordingly by staying tuned to the local news for weather updates, bringing in or tying down outside objects such as lawn furniture and trash cans, and it’s always a good idea to have operating flashlights and a supply of food and water, as we all know the road between Surf City and Topsail Beach can flood even with an afternoon thunderstorm.
We will keep you updated if conditions change.
