Hurricane Dorian Updates & Resources

Hurricane Dorian Information

The impact of Hurricane Dorian on our island.

We’re still assessing the extent of Hurricane Dorian’s damage to Ocracoke Island. We are presently under a mandatory evacuation for tourists, and “on the ground” assessments are difficult to acquire and gauge accurately. Our simple request is that everyone try to stay safe, dry, and warm. On behalf of all of us at Ocracoke Island, thank you for your kind thoughts and concern.
