Hurricane Dorian: County & CCV Updates

Share

Good Morning!

Below is the latest update from Currituck County.

A mandatory evacuation order remains in effect for both Corolla and Corva.

Storm prep has been completed on our rental homes and CCV office. Our office is currently closed and will remain closed for the duration of the storm. Once Hurricane Dorian has passed, we will assess conditions and determine at that time if it safe for our staff to return to work.

We know that you will have questions regarding the status of your vacation and access to Corolla. Once the storm passes and our staff is able to safely return to work, we will begin assessing our vacation rental homes, and be better equipped at addressing questions/concerns for upcoming reservations.

We will continue to post updates to our Facebook page and blog as information becomes available. We do ask that our guests stay vigilant and keep track of outside websites for up to date information on Hurricane Dorian. We’ve post websites below.

Thank you to all of our visitors and homeowners for being understanding and patient during this time. We appreciate all of your kind words, thoughts, and prayers you have sent our way!

 

CURRITUCK COUNTY IS UNDER: HURRICANE WARNING, STORM SURGE WARNING & FLASH FLOOD WATCH

CURRENT FORECAST

Watches and Warnings

A hurricane warning means that hurricane conditions are expected within the area. Expect the first occurrence of tropical-storm-force winds in the next 36 hours. Currituck County is expecting minor impact form Hurricane Dorian.

STORM SURGE WARNING is in effect from

8:00 p.m. Thursday, September 5, 2019 until 8:00 p.m. Friday, September 6, 2019. A storm surge watch means there is a possibility of life-threatening inundation, from rising water moving inland from the coastline.

FLASH FLOOD WATCH is in effect from

8:00 p.m. Thursday, September 5, 2019 until 8:00 p.m. Friday, September 6, 2019. A flash flood watch means that conditions are favorable for a sudden violent flood that can take from minutes to hours to develop. It does not mean flooding will occur, but it is possible.

You still have time to make your preparation before the storm.

Wind

The strongest wind is expected early to start affecting the area early Friday morning until Saturday morning. Peak winds are forecast to be 45-60 mile per hour (mph) with gusts to 75 mph. Hurricane force wind is possible, especially over coastal communities. This strong wind will have the ability to knock down trees and weak structures, and cause power outages.

Storm Surge

Based on the current forecast, flooding is expected to be 3 feet above ground in coastal Northeast North Carolina. Even a small shift in the track could change what locations may see the most significant inundation. Large breaking waves will likely result in moderate to significant beach erosion and ocean overwash along the coast. Vulnerable areas could experience erosion at multiple high tide cycles.

Do not focus on the storm track alone. Impacts will occur well away from the center. Water levels could rise well in advance of the arrival of strong winds.

A high threat of rip currents will continue for all area beaches and it is advised to stay out of the water.

Rainfall

Hurricane Dorian will produce heavy rainfall across northeast North Carolina, with moderate impacts possible. The current forecast shows rainfall amounts ranging from 4 to 8 inches with locally higher amounts possible over northeast North Carolina.

Flooding

Major flooding of 3 feet above ground is possible in the Currituck Sound. Major beach erosion is expected.
