>10/13/18 From Pam Anderson > I have to give a HUGE shout out to the KDH police dept for getting me in to the kennel during the storm in the BIG military truck around stalled cars, dumpsters in the road, and even a boat on a trailer. I am very grateful we have this resource. They went above and beyond to get people out of Colington and a staff person to Spring Arbor and me to the kennel by 4a. Even while responding to the car fire at Blue Crab and our Colington Fire Department was there through it all. When I got to the kennel, all the guests were sound asleep, safe and dry. Amazing dedication by all first responders and a HUGE Thank You from all of us at Ocean Sands K-9 Resort. > From a Sheriff Doughtie: > Just to add a little bit to this story and to give credit to these Officers who were at work and were involved. Deputy Stephen Smith and Deputy Darrell Gray with the Dare County Sheriff’s Office and Sgt.Rodney Rawls who was off duty but came out to help rescue a mom and her children who were trapped in a trailer with water rising and no way to get out on their own. These officers driving with no headlights due to the high water with flashlights hanging out the truck windows for light made it to where they were, Rawls and Gray in about three feet of water waded to the trailer and assisted the people back to the truck and carried them to safety. This is the same team that carried Pam to the kennel and assisted with other rescues in the campground and and various other locations during the night. I can truly say that Sgt. Rodney Rawls is a dedicated Officer who even when not working and received a call to help didn’t just pass it on to the officers at work but met the Deputies at The Colington Airport and jumped in with them to assist. Thank you for doing what you do and the same goes to all the Fire Departments,EMS and Police Officers and Tele-communicators all over Dare County who were doing the same things through the night and might have gone unnoticed but definitely appreciated for what they accomplished. Thank you to Pam Anderson for the kind remarks about all these public servants and the job they do.

1030pm 10/11/18 First responders report travel on NC12 from Pea Island to Avon should be avoided due to soundside flooding. 

Safety Tips and Resources for Approaching Tropical Storm Conditions Post Date:10/10/2018 2:06 PM Contact Dorothy Hester, PIO Phone 252.475.5903 All areas of Dare County are now under a Tropical Storm Warning with a Flash Flood Watch and a Storm Surge Watch in effect. Residents, visitors and business owners are encouraged to take necessary steps now to secure property and ensure safety and preparedness prior to the arrival of tropical storm force winds, heavy rain, and possibly 2-4 feet of above ground soundside flooding. National Weather Service forecasters with the Newport/Morehead City Weather Forecast Office indicate that the current forecast track will bring southerly winds at near tropical storm strength that will transition to the southwest and then to the west as Michael moves rapidly across the region Thursday night into Friday morning. While the Storm Surge Watch covers all of Dare County, forecasters believe that any impacts from soundside flooding will be seen in areas of the county north of Avon. The National Hurricane Center’s Potential Storm Surge Flooding Map can be found at https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/ under Hurricane Michael Storm Surge Inundation link. Dare County Emergency Management offers the following tips and resources: Those in all soundside areas prone to flooding are advised to take precautions. Consider moving vehicles and other personal property to higher ground as storm surge could cause flooding. As weather conditions worsen Thursday evening, travel only if absolutely necessary and stop if you encounter water covering the road. Turn around, don’t drown! It is never safe to drive or walk through flood waters because you will not know the depth of the water or the condition of the ground underneath. Know your location. If visiting the area, learn the exact street address of where you are staying in case of an emergency. The threat of rip currents is already high and will remain elevated until well after the storm passes through. Stay out of the ocean as conditions are dangerous for even the most experienced swimmers. Monitor NOAA Weather Radio or other local news outlets for official storm information. Keep you cell phone on charged with Government Alerts enabled to ensure you receive NWS issued alerts for life threatening weather conditions.

September 21, 2018 Captain Kevin Duprey It has come to our understanding that the SCAM about jury duty has been surfacing again. We do have court coming up where jurors may be needed. You may receive some mail, a phone call or even a visit by a Deputy if you do not show up to court as instructed. WE WILL NOT call you and tell you to pay any amount of money over the phone. If someone calls you on our behalf and asks you to pay anything over the phone it is a SCAM. Do not go get any Green Dot cards or other forms of payment to give to them. If you have any concerns about a call you received please give the Sheriff's Office, your Local Police Department and/or the Clerk of Courts a call. They can tell you what you need to do. DO NOT call the number back they called you from or provided you. These individuals can be intimidating and forceful and may call you back numerous times. These SCAM ARTISTS are getting better at their craft and the phone number may look like it came from a Law Enforcement Facility or Clerk of Courts, 475 5200 After they ask you for money to be provided over the phone, HANG UP and if you need to call us use one of the following numbers. Dare County Communications non-emergency number 252-473-3444 Dare County Sheriff's Office - 252-475-5980

To help prevent damage to our businesses and homes, the Town of Manteo will be enforcing our "no wake" ordinance during and after this storm event. Do not drive through flooded streets or in hazardous conditions and obey all traffic control measures. Turn around, don't drown. Please conserve water during periods of heavy rain and throughout the storm event. Avoid running dishwashers and clothes washers, limit the amount of water used for showering and when flushing the toilet. Make plans to complete the usage of dishwashers and clothes washers before the start of the storm. The Town of Manteo Wastewater Treatment Plant is equipped with a generator capable of maintaining operations during an extended power outage. Not all of the Town of Manteo sewer pump stations have permanent generators and sewer service may be unavailable during a loss of power in certain areas until temporary or utility power is restored. Town of Southern Shores For your personal safety and to allow clearing crews unhindered work space, please do not walk outside after the storm, especially on streets. Southern Shores’ streets are covered with tree limbs that when wind-twisted, become dangerous hanging projectiles until cleared. Please be cognizant of debris pick-up protocols before any yard debris is moved, or before any other type of debris is moved to a public street. Yard debris generated by a non-declared storm must follow normal limb/branch pick up rules. Property owners and residents on private streets should be cognizant of pick up protocols before any yard debris is moved. Any owner of property adjacent to a public canal is responsible, by Town ordinance, for removal of trees and debris which fall from the property into the canal. Be aware of hiring non-local transient workers seeking clean-up work. Be diligent - require and check two local references before hiring. Call local authorities if any discomfort. Southern Shores was founded in a natural area - there is no central stormwater collection and disposal system for stormwater standing in open areas, including streets. Please remember it may take several days or more, for standing storm water to naturally infiltrate into the ground. Pumping storm water from a private property onto property of another-including public streets, is prohibited. Any mechanical collection of standing stormwater by a private property owner must also include legal disposal of the collected water. Only in cases of extreme flooding of a public street and after the resulting stormwater shows no sign of natural infiltration after typical stand times for the particular water volumes, will the USEPA and NCDEQ permit the Town to consider removing and discharging stormwater (at a permitted location - “public trust ocean beach”) to allow emergency vehicles to safely pass on the public streets.
