Dare County Emergency Management continues to closely monitor Hurricane Dorian and is advising residents and visitors to begin implementing their hurricane preparedness plans.

“Even with the amount of uncertainty with Dorian’s current forecast track, Dare County could experience impacts from the storm as early as Wednesday, September 4,” said Dare County Emergency Management Director Drew Pearson. “Now is the time to assemble or restock your disaster supply kit with essentials to sustain your family and your pets for three to five days. Have your evacuation plan ready to execute.”

Rough seas and strong rip currents are already creating dangerous conditions for beachgoers and will continue through the week. Everyone is advised to stay out of the water to ensure their personal safety.
