The Topsail Beach Board of Commissioners declared a State of Emergency for Hurricane Dorian effective September 1, 2019 at noon. The State of Emergency allows the Town to proceed with preparations for possible impacts from the storm and to be in position for aid from FEMA if necessary. The current State of Emergency DOES NOT CALL FOR VOLUNTARY OR MANDATORY EVACUATION. As the Town monitors the track of the storm, we will determine any further action necessary.
According to the National Hurricane Center, there is an increasing likelihood of strong winds and dangerous storm surge along the coasts of Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina later this week. Residents in these areas should continue to monitor the progress of Dorian. We urge you to continue to use this time to prepare for possible impacts from Hurricane Dorian. A good source of information for an individual checklist of supplies is available online at www.readync.org. The app is free for downloading.
Please also note that in an effort to clear the roads from potential debris, the bulk item pick-up normally scheduled for Friday will be on WEDNESDAY this week. Please plan on placing any items you wish to have removed out by the road by Tuesday.
The Town Board of Commissioners will meet again on Monday, September 2nd at 1:00 for further updates. Thank you and STAY SAFE.
STATE OF EMERGENCY - DORIAN
