Emerald Isle Update - Overnight Flooding

Emerald Isle Update-

The Town of Emerald Isle received several inches of rain overnight. There are places along Coast Guard Road and other low lying areas that have post Hurricane flooding.

Based on local weather reports, the rain should taper off today (6/17/20). All Town owned storm water pumps are operating at full capacity.

We have secured a large rental pump as well. This unit will used to move water from blocked roadways and critical infrastructure.

Every member of the town staff is in the field now, working as quickly as possible, to move the water.  We appreciate everyone’s patience.
