Tropical Storm Hermine

Update from Dare County Public Relations:

Make Final Storm Preparations and Travel Decisions Before Storm Conditions Arrive:

A Tropical Storm Warning and Flash Flood Watch remain in effect for all areas of Dare County. A variety of impacts are expected as Tropical Storm Hermine approaches, including possible flash flooding, tropical storm force winds, minor to moderate storm surge and beach erosion.

Outside weather preparations should be completed as soon as possible before weather conditions worsen. Now is also the time to complete all other emergency preparations. Guests planning to depart the area on Saturday should consider leaving today before weather conditions deteriorate or postponing travel until Sunday. Be sure to check the forecast for your travel route and destination before departing.

Tropical storm force winds are expected to arrive late Friday or early Saturday and continue through late Saturday afternoon. Residents and visitors should be prepared to stay indoors, away from windows, during what is anticipated to be a fast-moving storm.

Widespread rainfall of 5 to 8 inches is anticipated with isolated amounts of up to 10 inches. Prolonged heavy rainfall could result in flash flooding. These conditions make travel hazardous, especially along NC 12 and other roadways prone to flooding. If travel is necessary, use caution and expect delays. If you encounter water covering the road – turn around, don’t drown. It is never safe to drive or walk through flood waters because you will not know the depth of the water or the condition of the ground underneath. This is especially true at night, when your vision is more limited.

There will be minor to moderate storm surge flooding of 1 to 3 feet above ground levels in some areas. The current forecast indicates that areas along the Pamlico Sound from Hatteras Village north will be more prone to sound side flooding. The National Hurricane Center has released storm surge inundation maps for Tropical Storm Hermine. They may be accessed at

The threat of rip currents will remain high through the weekend indicating that the surf is dangerous for swimmers of all levels.

Welcome Slash Creek

We’re pleased to share our recent partnership with Slash Creek, a condominium and boat slip property on Hatteras Island.  We began the management transition in mid-April and things have been going great.  Thanks to all of the owners for offering such a great welcome!

Welcome Two Associations

We extend a warm welcome to two community associations that have chosen Seaside Management as their management company. First is The Waterfront Condominiums in Manteo, the second is Bias Shores in Duck.  Welcome, and thanks!

Holding On a Little Longer

Well, most of Joaquin has passed.  We still have one more round of high tide to go and then we think it’ll be gone for good.  No major damage at any of our properties, other than the normal wind driven rain, missing roof shingles and sand and debris blowing around. The dunes took a hard hit along the oceanfront, but thankfully no breaches on the properties.

Today’s Hurricane Update

This from Dare County Emergency Management:

The Dare County Control Group met this morning to review the latest information from the National Weather Service.  Confidence has increased significantly with the forecast track of Hurricane Joaquin and it is very likely that the storm will move northeast, well away from the North Carolina coast.  NO evacuation orders for Dare County are anticipated.

Regardless of Hurricane Joaquin moving well off the coast, a flood watch, coastal flood advisory AND high surf advisory are in effect.  Heavy rain associated with an upper low and frontal system will bring an additional 2 to 3 inches of rain through the weekend.  Given the already saturated ground, flooding is expected in some low lying areas and roadways.  Motorists are advised to proceed with caution.

Anticipated wind impacts have lessened and while no tropical force winds are expected, the area will experience sustained winds of 25 to 30 mph Sunday evening into Monday.  Minor coastal flooding with high surf and ocean swells will occur.  The threat of ocean overwash has diminished but cannot be ruled out in areas that are highly vulnerable.  There is the possibility of some soundside flooding.

A high threat of rip currents remains in effect and ocean swimming conditions are hazardous.  Please stay out of the ocean.

Governor Declares State of Emergency

Governor Pat McCrory has declared a state of emergency for all 100 counties in North Carolina today in preparation for severe weather that is predicted to cause severe flooding throughout the state.
