Good morning from a partly cloudy and warm Hatteras Island. Irma has now been downgraded to a tropical storm, so we expect to see only some lingering wind and rain reach the Outer Banks as the week progresses and the storm dissipates. We look forward to welcoming all incoming Guests without interruption for a wonderful fall week at the beach.
While we are extremely fortunate to have remained outside Irma's path, our thoughts and prayers go out to the residents, visitors and emergency teams in Florida, our neighbors in the southeast and the Caribbean. We hope everyone remains safe as the storm abates and wish you a strong and swift recovery in the coming weeks.
Dare County officials are reminding visitors and residents to continue monitoring the storm and to be prepared for any potential effects. A beach hazards statement is currently in effect for dangerous surf conditions and strong rip currents, so please be cautious when enjoying the beach.
Our next communication is scheduled for Tuesday, September 12 at 10 a.m. unless additional information is received earlier.
Please continue to follow these updates for more information as it becomes available. If you haven't yet booked your fall stay, check out our great deals happening now. Come enjoy one of the best seasons of the year at one of the nation's top beaches. The fish are jumping, the wind is steady, and the water is warm. We look forward to seeing you at the beach!
