Good evening. Topsail Beach staff is continuing to work on assessing the damage resulting from Hurricane Florence. Unfortunately the storm is moving very slowly, making access to the island difficult. Our hope is to work with Jones-Onslow and Surf City to secure safe entry to Topsail Beach for our residents and property owners. Early today, staff was able to go to Topsail Beach for a preliminary review. There is debris on the roads and standing water in some areas making for difficult travel.
Efforts are underway to restore power and make roads passable. Once this is done, we will have a clearer idea as to when Topsail Beach and Surf City can begin re-entry.
We ask that you remain patient as we deal with the impacts of this huge storm. Our goal is the safety of our citizens and staff. As soon as possible, we will provide more detailed information.
Please be safe.
