Hurricanes, Fishing, Music and more! 

 

Hurricane Florence:

A total of $50 Million in public damage was documented following Hurricane Florence in September 2018.  A series of major repairs remain.  Projects include the replacement of 11 piers/docks, the Kayak Launch area at EI Woods, storm water repairs on Reed Drive and a series of other repairs.  The Town plans to release bids in October 2019. Work is anticipated to take place between November and March.  Completion is expected in time for the summer 2020 season!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hurricane Dorian:

The Town of Emerald Isle desires to provide our residents, businesses and visitors with an update related to the impact of Hurricane Dorian 2019. 

DEBRIS: The tornado that hit on September 5th caused severe damage across multiple blocks in the area surrounding Islander Drive. The cleanup effort was massive and would not have been possible without the support of the City of New Bern, City of Jacksonville, Lowes Home Improvement, Sunland Builders, Yardworks Inc., The Yard Barber, the American Red Cross and a host of unnamed volunteers/companies.    As of September 20th, a total of 516-tons of C & D debris has been moved from the island. Thank you all for this major effort!

VEGETATION: The Emerald Isle Public Works team is now shifting gears to vegetation removal.  There are two knuckle-boom trucks working 5-days per week, collecting material from the roadway edge.  We ask for your patience, as storm related vegetation is quite heavy in certain sections of town.

 

Emerald Isle Fishing Tournament:

The inaugural EI Fishing Tournament takes place this weekend, September 21st.  Join us at the NC Wildlife Boat Launch located at 6800 Emerald Drive.  For more information, visit www.emeraldislefishingtournament.com 

 

Beach Music Festival:

The 4th annual Emerald Isle Beach Music Festival returns September 28th.  We have booked another great lineup for this year's event on the beach strand at the Western Ocean Regional Access.  Performers include the Band of Oz, Too Much Sylvia, Chairmen of the Board, the Embers, and the Tams.  Come on out and enjoy a beautiful weekend in Emerald Isle! Parking will be permitted along the grassy NC 58 right of way. Only handicapped parking will be available at the Western Ocean Regional Access.

Thank you to everyone that helped prepare, respond and recover from Hurricanes Florence and Dorian.   Please know, Emerald Isle is "Open for Business"! 

#EIStrong!
