Press Release #10: Hurricane Florence Update on Hyde County Conditions

Hyde County officials have been out assessing the flooding conditions throughout the county this morning. At this time, the flooding situation is still evolving and we are advising all residents and travelers to remain patient and stay where you are for another day at least. Do not attempt to drive though water that is crossing over the streets. A couple inches of flowing water can move a car off the road. State officials have recommended that nobody travels east of I-95 at this time.

Flooding is still occurring in multiple parts of the county. The flooding in Engelhard is at its worst yet, as of 10:45 am. Hwy 264 from the Beaufort County line to Rosebay is still impassable. We have reports that flood levels are rising in Tyrrell County in the Hwy 94 area. Hwy 264 to Dare County is also flooded.

At this time, the mandatory evacuation order in Hyde County is still in effect. All sales of alcohol are still prohibited until further notice. The curfew from 9:00 pm to 5:00 am is still in effect.

Hyde County officials would like to remind everyone that we are the only official source for information regarding conditions in the county. We will post updates on the conditions to our social media sites as we get them. You can call the Hyde County EOC at 252-926-3715 for any updates.

If anyone is in a flooded area and need to be evacuated, please call the EOC. We have a local shelter setup at the O.A. Peay School Gymnasium and have boats available to pick you up. Water, MREs, and tarps are available if needed.
