Update #2: Hurricane Maria

Dare County has issued a mandatory evacuation for Hatteras Island as of noon today, September 25.

Good morning from a warm and windy Hatteras Island. With concern for ocean overwash and other effects due to the oncoming of Hurricane Maria, Dare County has issued a state of emergency and evacuation of Hatteras Island.

As such, it is imperative that you adhere to the instructions of Outer Beaches Realty and local authorities. Our policies are as follows: When Dare County issues a mandatory evacuation, you should pack all belongings and food, complete the hurricane preparation checklist, and evacuate the Island to the north immediately. Neither Outer Beaches nor the Homeowner will be responsible for any items you may leave behind.

Please be completely out of your home and return your keys to the nearest OBR office as soon as possible. Thank you for your cooperation so our staff can make final checks of every home before the brunt of the storm.

During periods of evacuation, visit OuterBeaches.com or our Facebook page for daily alerts or call our main office at 800-627-3150 for frequent updates of the storm and important information via our automated voice mail system.

Guests currently in OBR homes, please follow our Hurricane Preparation Procedures here as you depart and bookmark the storm resource links listed below. Anticipate localized ocean overwash and use caution when driving. If the evacuation is lifted prior to the weekend and you wish to return for any unused days, we would welcome you back. Please call our office and let us know if you intend to do so.

If you are scheduled to arrive this weekend, keep your plans intact. Other than the next few days, we expect little longer lasting effects and hope you can arrive as planned. Stay tuned to these communications and other news as the storm passes for further information.

Our next communication is scheduled for Tuesday, September 26 at 10 a.m. unless additional information is received earlier.

To all of our Guests, travel safely! We look forward to seeing you soon…

…at the beach.

Sincerely,

All of us at Outer Beaches Realty
