Tropical Storm Isaias Update #7

Onslow County Emergency Management has announced that while they do not plan to activate a full Emergency Operations Center for this storm, they are concerned with persons living in mobile homes, campers, etc … and plan to open shelters in the County.

For the North Topsail Beach area the closest shelter will be the Dixon Middle School in Sneads Ferry. They plan to open this shelter tonight at 6:00PM. They suggest that anyone wishing to utilize the shelter eat dinner before coming as no food service will be available. They also require you bring a mask, hand sanitizer, your own bedding, and snacks.

The shelter will close at 12:00PM (noon) on Tuesday. At this time no evacuations or curfews are anticipated in any county municipality.
