The Town continues to watch the path of Hurricane Matthew, although the models look favorable for Topsail Beach, we will still feel the impacts of the storm as it passes. We are now under a Tropical Storm Warning.
The Town of Topsail Beach has declared a State of Emergency as of 10 a.m. this morning and a voluntary evacuation for the general public will be in effect starting at 9 a.m. tomorrow morning. If you intend to stay, be prepared to stay for a minimum of 2-3 days until the flood waters recede. If you are planning to leave and need information on local shelters please call Town hall or the Police department.
Please be aware the beach strand is currently closed to vehicular traffic.
We encourage you to stay tuned to the weather forecasts and we will update you as we get new information.
