We are currently still experiencing the impacts from Hurricane Florence. This includes heavy rain,winds and flooding. Storm surge still remains a high threat to the beach.
We have confirmed flooding in Topsail Beach and Surf City. We have not done any house assessments and streets have debris and have not been cleared. Current weather conditions are limiting infrastructure recovery. Currently, parts of I40 are closed aw well as highways 210, 50 and 53 due to heavy flooding. at this time we have not see major structural damage but lower home flooding is possible. We have had both dune breaches and sound side flooding.
No access is allowed on the island until further notice. Jones- Onslow must assess the damage to determine safety before any return.
