Mandatory visitor evacuation ordered for Hatteras Island

Mandatory visitor evacuation ordered for Hatteras Island

Citing safety issues from a major power outage, Dare County has ordered a mandatory evacuation for visitors on Hatteras Island starting at 6 a.m. Saturday.

The order will prevent vacationers planning to arrive Saturday for weekly rentals from getting onto the island. Ocracoke ordered a mandatory evacuation for visitors Thursday.

Here is the county’s full statement:

Due to life safety issues from the loss of reliable electrical power on Hatteras Island and growing uncertainty as to when repairs to the main transmission line will be completed to enable restoration of full power to the island, a mandatory evacuation has been issued for all visitors to Hatteras Island, effective at 6 a.m. on Saturday, July 29. This evacuation order includes the villages of Rodanthe, Waves, Salvo, Avon, Buxton, Frisco and Hatteras.

Residents, non-resident property owners, essential personnel, and non-resident employees of non-critical businesses will be allowed entry with proper reentry credentials.

This evacuation order does not include any areas north of Oregon Inlet. All areas north of Oregon Inlet remain open with no restrictions in place.

The state of emergency issued for Hatteras Island earlier today included the implementation of mandatory power conservation measures that will remain in place. All Cape Hatteras Electric Cooperative (CHEC) customers must remove air conditioning systems and hot tub heaters from the power grid by turning off system circuit breakers. In addition, mandatory water restrictions have been issued prohibiting the filling of pools or hot tubs, the watering of lawns, and the watering of driveways or sidewalks for cleaning.

Dare County Emergency Management will continue to work with Cape Hatteras Electric Cooperative to help facilitate the restoration of power to levels that will allow visitors to return. At this time there is no estimate regarding the timeline for full restoration of services. Updates regarding reentry for visitors will be provided as information is available.

For updated information from CHEC regarding power restoration, visit

NASA Releases Satellite Images of Shelly Island – New Island on Outer Banks

Shelly Island - New Island on Outer Banks

NASA recently released satellite images that show the formation of a new shoal off Cape Point at Cape Hatteras National Seashore.

The first image of the new shoal, nicknamed “Shelly Island,” was captured by satellite in November 2016. When the second image was taken in January, waves could be seen breaking on the shallow region off the cape’s tip. Where those waves were breaking is where Shelly Island eventually formed, which is visible in the third image, taken this month.
