Emerald Isle Emergency Services Monitoring Tropical Storm Idalia

Emerald Isle Emergency Services Monitoring Tropical Storm Idalia

 

Emerald Isle, 8/28/2023 – The Emerald Isle Emergency Services is closely tracking the progression of Tropical Storm Idalia as it advances towards northwest Florida. Collaborating with local, state, and federal partners, we are diligently staying informed about this tropical system's evolving developments. As the extent of its impacts remains uncertain, contingent upon the storm's track and intensity, we are urging all residents to remain prepared.

 

According to National Weather Service (NWS) reports, the projected impacts of Tropical Storm Idalia on Carteret County are expected to escalate in the mid-to-late week. While the storm's precise trajectory is yet to be determined, it is critical to review family emergency plans, gather essential supplies, and stay informed about evolving weather conditions.

 

Essential components of preparedness include:

  • Developing and practicing an emergency plan, including knowing evacuation routes and destinations for you and your family.
  • Procuring necessary emergency supplies and refreshing your emergency kit. ReadyNC.gov offers guidance on assembling an emergency kit.
  • Checking if you reside within a predetermined evacuation zone via KnowYourZone.nc.gov. If you are in an area prone to flooding, closely monitor updates for potential evacuation orders.

 

To enhance personal safety and preparedness, we strongly recommend frequent monitoring of local media for real-time weather updates and revisiting your individual emergency response strategies. The Emergency Services team in Emerald Isle is actively participating in daily conference calls to maintain a current understanding of the storm's projected path and potential impacts.

Stay safe and informed.
