The last ferries from Ocracoke to Cedar Island and Swan Quarter will leave Ocracoke at 4:00 p.m. today.  The last ferry from Ocracoke to Hatteras is scheduled for 5:00 p.m. today. The Hatteras Ferry route has ample capacity to accommodate people leaving Ocracoke. Go to NCDOT.gov/ferry for the most recent information.
Hurricane Arthur is now expected to be a Category 2 hurricane when it passes over or near the North Carolina coast. Tropical storm force winds are expected to affect Ocracoke Island beginning today at 8:00 p.m. and subside around 9:00 a.m. Friday.  Hurricane force winds are expected between 2:00-4:00 a.m. Friday with peak wind projected around 103 MPH at 3:00 a.m. Friday. 15-25 foot seas are expected with storm surge projections of 3-5 feet above ground. Isolated tornados are also possible over portions of coastal North Carolina.  
Reminder
Those that choose to stay on Ocracoke do so at their own risk and need to be well prepared for potential serious impacts of the storm.  County Manager Bill Rich sternly warns everyone on Ocracoke, "There could be loss of electricity, there could be restaurants closing, there could be cars flooding, and roads could be compromised; if you do not want to experience what could be, you should leave the Island."    There is no pre-equipped storm shelter on Ocracoke and people who choose to stay should be prepared to be self-supporting.  Please disconnect your car battery if your car is flooded. Hyde County officials ask all lodging establishments on Ocracoke take every effort to keep their clients out of harms way from 9:00 p.m. Thursday to 10:00 a.m. Friday morning. Go to ReadyNC.org for ideas on emergency supply kits and more information about hurricane preparedness. Please be alert, be prepared, and be smart!


Additional Information
Preparation Measures by Tideland EMC:  Tideland is preparing for the storm by sending additional resources to Ocracoke. Tideland has no plans to shut power off in advance of the storm and is prepared to run the Ocracoke generator in the event of a prolonged outage. However, the ability of the generator to power the island in an emergency situation will largely depend on electric load. Therefore, island residents will be asked to practice extreme conservation efforts if the generator is called into service. Power restoration activities do not begin until storm conditions have sufficiently subsided to ensure safe working conditions for utility crews. More information available here.
Preparation Measures by NCDOT:  Along the Outer Banks, crews are staging motor graders, excavators, bulldozers and front-end loaders in Buxton, Kitty Hawk, Ocracoke and Pea Island. NCDOT has more equipment ready to mobilize, if needed, as well as employees prepared to patrol N.C. 12 during and after the storm. More information available here.

From the NC DOT

Ocracoke Island Journal - Thu, 07/03/2014 - 10:38

(MANNS HARBOR) - Based on current forecasts for the arrival of Hurricane Arthur, the North Carolina Department of Transportation's Ferry Division will suspend operations on its Ocracoke-Hatteras ferry operation at 5 p.m. Thursday, July 3 to enable crews to secure boats and shelter in safe locations before the storm arrives."We urge everyone who is evacuating Ocracoke Island to get to the ferry terminal as soon as possible," said NC Ferry Division Director Ed Goodwin. " Safety is always our first priority, and by suspending operations after our 5 p.m. departure, we will get evacuees to Hatteras in time to drive off the island before the worst of the storm hits, while also allowing our ferry crews to keep themselves and our boats safe."In addition, the Ferry Division's routes between Ocracoke-Swan Quarter and Ocracoke-Cedar Island will suspend operations after their 4 p.m. departures. All routes will resume operations as soon as it is safe to do so.

"Arthur strengthened into a Category 1 hurricane early Thursday.... Arthur had registered maximum sustained winds of 75 mph and was about 190 miles south-southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina, the National Hurricane Center said at 4:50 a.m. ET....The National Hurricane Center predicted Arthur would swipe the coast early Friday with winds of up to 85 mph."
We have completed most of our preparations, but will be removing loose objects from porches and outside (including the clam baskets, etc. from the side of my outbuilding) today. My car is parked on a hill in my back yard.

Hyde County officials have declared a countywide state of emergency and a voluntary evacuation for Ocracoke Island that went into place today at 2:00 p.m. The National Weather Service has issued a hurricane warning for all of Hyde County and much of the Outer Banks in anticipation of Tropical Storm Arthur strengthening into a hurricane Thursday, July 3, 2014.    Recent data from the National Hurricane Center shows little change in the storm's track.  Sustained tropical storm force winds around 45 MPH are expected to affect Ocracoke between 10:00 p.m. Thursday and 8:00 a.m. Friday.  Peak sustained winds of 65 MPH are expected to occur around 2:00 a.m. Friday.  15-20 foot seas are expected with storm surge projections of 0-3 feet above ground.  Those that choose to stay on Ocracoke do so at their own risk and need to be well prepared for potential serious impacts of the storm.  County Manager Bill Rich sternly warns everyone on Ocracoke, "There could be loss of electricity, there could be restaurants closing, there could be cars flooding, and roads could be compromised; if you do not want to experience what could be, you should leave the Island."    There is no pre-equipped storm shelter on Ocracoke and people who choose to stay should be prepared to be self-supporting.  Hyde County officials ask all lodging establishments on Ocracoke take every effort to keep their clients out of harms way from 9:00 p.m. Thursday to 10:00 a.m. Friday morning.

Waiting...

Ocracoke Island Journal - Wed, 07/02/2014 - 05:44
...and preparing.

Although "Arthur" is still just a tropical storm, the system is expected to become a category 1 hurricane by the time it reaches the Outer Banks early Friday morning. Wind speeds by then are forecast to be around 85 miles per hour. However if the storm passes far enough offshore we may be spared the brunt of Arthur.

Nevertheless, we are getting ready for the first named storm of 2014, and will keep you posted as regularly as possible, either here on the Ocracoke Journal or on our Village Craftsmen Facebook page, as events unfold.

Understandably, July 4th events on the island have been canceled. Maybe they will be rescheduled for Saturday.

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is the story of Ocracoke's Agnes Scott, direct descendant of Agnes Scott for whom the women's college in Decatur, Georgia is named. You can read the Newsletter here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news062114.htm.

Vacationers help needy families on the Outer Banks

Village Realty Blog - Mon, 07/20/2009 - 13:41
Saturday, July 18, 2009 BRBRBy Jennifer Preyss BRStaff Writer for The A href="http://www.dailyadvance.com/news/vacationers-help-needy-families-726249.html"Daily AdvanceBR/A DIV class=subheadline H3Pa. families give 2 families $1,400/H3BRWhen Currituck locals get the urge to complain about tourists this summer, they might want to consider what three families vacationing from Pennsylvania are doing to make life a little easier for the area’s neediest residents. BRBRFor the second year in a row, the Malagise family of Freedom, Pa., the O’Donnell family of West Mifflin, Pa., and the Wilson family of Bethel Park, Pa., have donated money to help an area family struggling to make ends meet. BRBRAccording to Ginger Candelora, executive director of Interfaith Community Outreach, the families were vacationing on the Outer Banks last summer when they discovered that behind the Outer Banks’ beautiful beaches and tourist attractions, there was a rising unemployment rate and hundreds of families in dire financial straits. BRBR“They were just talking one night around the pool and said, 'It’s hard to believe you’ve got so many poor people living in the middle of paradise,’” Candelora said. BRBRCandelora isn’t sure how the families learned about ICO, but they contacted her office and inquired about making a donation to local family in need. BRBR“They said they wanted to donate money, but they wanted to write the check themselves and give it to the person, rather than go through ICO,” Candelora said. “We don’t usually do that, so we found a Currituck lady who was in the hospital, she had contracted a virus, and was facing eviction from her home. We told (the families) they could write a check to her landlord.” BRBRThe vacationers agreed, and wrote a $400 check to the woman’s landlord. BRBRWhen the families returned for a vacation this summer in Duck, they again contacted ICO and inquired about making a donation to another family. This time, they wanted to donate an even larger sum: $1,000. BRBRAs Candelora went through her 44 faith outreach networks and the Departments of Social Services in Currituck and Dare, one family rose to the top as a perfect candidate for the donation. BRBRA young Dare County family was struggling to pay bills after the husband had lost his construction job. Their troubles mounted after his hours at a local restaurant — where he had found another job — were cut. BRBR“He finally found full-time work at Food Lion, but they were hurting with their finances and about one and one-half months behind in their rent,” Candelora said. BRBRInterfaith was familiar with the family because that’s what it does: helps needy families in Dare and Currituck counties by providing them with emergency services and funding. Since January, the ecumenical outreach program and its network of donors between Moyock and Hatteras have helped more than 500 families in the two counties. BRBRThe families left quietly about a week ago, and requested their donations remain anonymous. But Candelora, touched by their giving, begged them to go public. BRBR“They wanted to give anonymously, but we wanted to let folks see that our visitors care so much for our paradise,” Candelora said. “And they’re so young. I was impressed with that. It gives us hope."BRBRA href="http://www.dailyadvance.com/news/vacationers-help-needy-families-726249.html"Link to the ArticleBR/A/:OD/DIV

This Week... Free and Otherwise

Village Realty Blog - Mon, 06/22/2009 - 11:34
Interior Secretary Ken Salazar announced June 2 that the National Park Service (NPS) will offer three fee-free weekends this summer to encourage Americans seeking affordable vacations to visit these national treasures.BRBR"During these tough economic times, our national parks provide opportunities for affordable vacations for families," Secretary Salazar said. "I encourage everyone to visit one of our nation's crown jewels this summer and especially to take advantage of the three free-admission weekends." The 147 NPS sites across the country that charge fees for entry will waive these entrance fees during the weekends of June 20-21, July 18-19, and August 15-16, 2009. This would include the Wright Memorial at Milepost 7!BRBRHere are some places that are always free:BRBROur Beaches!

Outer Banks Rules

Village Realty Blog - Fri, 06/19/2009 - 15:38
DIVYes, this is a laid back beach town and yes, it is summer. That means relaxation and rest and fun, fun, fun. Great.BRBR/DIV DIVHowever, there are some rules for everyone that will make your time here, no matter if you are here for a week or a weekend or even if you live here, much more pleasant and possibly safer.BRBR/DIV DIVAfter 35 + years of island living and having worked in many businesses here, here is what I have learned:BR/DIV DIV/DIVBR UL LISPANSPANNo socks with sandals. No exceptions. This is just wrong, peopleBR/SPAN/SPAN LIDo not pass a car on the RIGHT if you are on the beach road. Seriously. This is not only rude, it is dangerous. I cannot stress this one enough.BR LIIf you are not sure where you are going (guys, this one is for you) then ASK someone. We are happy to give you directionsBR LISTOP and let pedestrians cross the beach road. There are many places that are designated as crosswalks but you will see folks waiting sometimes at a non designated spot. Do the nice thing.BR LIDo go to John's Drive In on the Beach Road. Get a milkshake and a dolphin boat. You will thank me for thisBR LIPlease shop at the locally owned businesses ... you can tell which ONEs they are.BR LIPlease do not throw cigarrette butts out the window or dump the car ashtray in the driveway or in the sand.BR LIIf you have small kids, ask around for kid friendly restaurants. Most are, but some are truly not.BR LIIf your little one is screaming, crying or running around in the restaurant, please take him/her outside.BR LIDogs are welcome here. We love them, that is why so many A href="http://www.petfriendlyobx.com/" target=_blankFONT color=#336699vacation homes allow pets/FONT/A. Please clean up after your dog. Enough said.BR LII really do not care to read the suggestive slogan on your t-shirt and I am sure many other moms and dads and grandparents feel the same way. Save those for when you are IN the house, please. BR LIGo fly a kite. Seriously, go to Jockey's Ridge in Nags Head and fly a kite.BR LIGo see the A href="http://www.thelostcolony.org/" target=_blankFONT color=#336699Lost Colony Outdoor Drama/FONT/A. You will enjoy it.BR LITake lots of photos. Take them in high resolution. A href="http://www.villagerealtyobx.com/OuterBanks/VacationRentals/photocontest" target=_blankFONT color=#336699Enter our Photo Contest /FONT/Aand perhaps you will win a free week at the beach!BR LILeave the beach the way you found it. BR LIWant to visit a real old fashioned movie theater that still shows movies? Go over to Manteo and watch a show at the Pioneer Theater.BR LITake deep breaths, smell the ocean air and gaze at the water for long periods of time. You will never get this moment back so savor it.BR LIDon't, do not, no way ... forget about drinking and driving. Please don't do it.BRBRRemember that the locals appreciate that you are spending your time and your money here. We want you to come back. /LI/UL PStay safe. And thanks!
