KURE BEACH - Town Councilman and Emergency Manager for the Town of Kure Beach issued an update on preparations for Hurricane Isaias on Monday August 3rd.

Residents, Visitors, and Property Owners,

Tropical Storm Isaias is now forecast to impact Kure Beach as a strong tropical storm tonight through tomorrow morning. All preparations of property should be completed today. The Town has finalized preparations and all departments are ready to respond following the storm passage.

All outside furniture, garbage/recycling cans and loose items that could become airborne in high winds should be tied down or brought inside at this time.

Real Estate and other signs should be taken in until the storm passes.

Construction materials should be tied down or moved inside.

Based on the current track and assuming no significant issues to town infrastructure garbage pickup will likely resume on Wednesday and Thursday, this will be communicated as soon as decisions are made.

With tropical storm winds, you should be prepared for some or all of the town losing electricity during the storm passage (late Monday or early Tuesday morning) and for it to not be restored until the following day. If portions of the Town lose power during the storm, the Town will be under CURFEW until daylight or power is restored. The CURFEW will be enforced by the Kure Beach Police Department. If your property loses power - please report the outage to Duke Power at 800-419-6356 or at on the Duke Energy website.

The tornado risk associated with this storm has increased. You should plan for where you and your family would shelter in your home if a tornado warning is announced for our area. This would be an inside room on the lowest level of the home, typically the downstairs bathroom. Go to the NHC website and sign up for emergency alerts to ensure that you are aware of any tornado warnings.

During the storm passage, you should shelter in place and not be driving/ walking around the town as high winds and debris represent a life safety hazard. If wind speeds exceed 45 mph sustained, the Snow’s Cut bridge will be closed to traffic AND emergency services will be suspended in the town until the winds pass.

Stay safe and if you have any questions please send them to the town emails of This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

David W. Heglar, PE
