Hurricane Isaias has formed in the Atlantic and, while currently located off the coast of Florida, it is expected to approach our area overnight Monday and into Tuesday. A tropical storm warning has been issued by the National Weather Service for southeastern North Carolina, including Bald Head Island. Isaias is expected to move out quickly and continue its path northward along the East Coast.
The Village of BHI has issued a State of Emergency and earlier today put in place a curfew beginning Monday evening at 5pm and running through 9am Tuesday morning.
With expected sustained winds of at least tropical storm strength (39-73 mph), it will be important to secure outdoor items, including patio chairs and tables, plants, garbage cans, etc., prior to Monday afternoon.
Once the curfew goes into effect, please remain on your property and inform your guests or renters about the curfew as well.
The Village's emergency team will evaluate the condition of the Island after the storm departs on Tuesday and will remove any downed trees or other hazards before giving the all clear for individuals to get out and about.
