Heavy Rainfall Causes Flooding in Emerald Isle

Portion of Reed Drive Closed

Due to ongoing heavy rainfall, several streets and roadways in Emerald Isle may be unpassable on August 4, 2021. The Town has received several inches of rain in the past 24 hours, and a Flash Flood Watch will continue through Thursday. 

9:30 a.m. update: Reed Drive, between East and West Sea View drives, is barricaded and closed to traffic at this time, due to flooding.

If you encounter a flooded area, be sure to turn around and find an alternative route. Do not attempt to drive through standing water.

Town staff is aware of where there is standing water, and is hard at work to alleviate the issue.
