Secure outdoor items and move vehicles and property from flood prone areas especially in areas flooded by southerly winds and near vulnerable ocean dune structures on Hatteras Island. Soundside water levels can be monitored at https://fiman.nc.gov/. As conditions deteriorate overnight, it will be important to keep your cell phone charged and turned on with public safety alerts enabled.
Ocean conditions are extremely dangerous and will remain so over the next few days. Everyone should stay out of the water, even experienced swimmers. For updated beach forecasts, visit weather.gov/beach/.
