Emergency declaration issued in Manteo as potential for storm impacts increase

The Town of Manteo has issued an Emergency Declaration as the forecasted impacts from Tropical Storm Isaias have increased. Isaias could regain minimal hurricane status. It is likely the Outer Banks area – including the Town of Manteo – will experience strong tropical storm force winds with an increased risk of soundside flooding.

The current forecast is predicting 2-4 feet of flooding along with tropical storm force winds. The town is reminding Manteo residents and businesses to secure trash cans, dumpsters and loose items. The town also is urging people to relocate property or vehicles that are in flood-prone areas. The town reminds people they should not enter floodwaters for their own safety.

For storm information, Manteo officials recommend visiting the National Weather Service site at weather.gov/mhx or Dare County’s dedicated Isaias web page at https://www.darenc.com/departments/emergency-management/isaias.
