We are under a Tropical Storm Warning and will likely see heavy rains and some strong winds starting this afternoon, July 2, 2022.
Thankfully, we are pretty dry, but we could see some intense rain and that usually takes awhile to drain. Our streets, including South Virginia Dare Trail and South Old Oregon Inlet Road, may have some ponding as a result, so please drive slowly.
According to US National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC, we could also see a few isolated tornadoes and strong winds that may cause minor damage. We're built for high winds here, but just in case, secure those loose items that you have outside, like sanitation carts, chairs, grills, etc...
Little to no impacts are expected from storm surge.
Dangerous marine conditions are expected across the coastal waters and Pamlico Sound.

Also, be patient as you visit our businesses. We are having the same issues as the rest of the country when it comes to staffing, so expect to spend a little more time waiting.
