Residents, Visitors, and Property Owners,

Damage assessment teams are currently out reviewing damage. Initial review shows the Town has done well.

There were some properties with tree issues, and the Building Inspector will be assessing those properties.

Duke Energy is on the island working to restore power. During the initial assessment, power is expected to be restored later today or sometime tomorrow based on Duke Energy crew availability.

Public Works and Fire Department personnel are working throughout Town, please insure you pay attention and look out for them as they work to clear roads and get water and sewer systems operational. No one should get hurt during the clean-up phase.

Police, Fire, and Public Works personnel are busy throughout Town, everyone is encouraged to remain on their property and not drive around Town as this assessment is occurring.

Snows Cut Bridge re-entry is restricted during this time, and should re-open later this morning.
