Hurricane Earl is on its way out and preliminary reports are that there was thankfully less of an impact on Hatteras Island than anticipated.
There is both ocean overwash and soundside flooding affecting the island at this time, as well as scattered power outages. Once we receive news from the authorities as to the status of access to the island and the staged re-entry procedures we will communicate that information to you.
At this point, we do know that check-in on Saturday will at least be late and could be delayed even further.
Our offices are still closed due to the mandatory evacuation, but we are monitoring the situation and will continue to update you as information becomes available.
For official storm bulletins from Dare County, please visit www.darenc.com. As soon as we have information to report, we will update the outgoing message on our toll free number, as well as the news page on our website. We are also providing updates on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/surforsound.
We appreciate your patience with us as we gather reliable information and prepare the homes for your stay.
We look forward to seeing you this week!
