IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR HATTERAS ISLAND VISITORS

In response to requests from visitors with upcoming travel plans for Hatteras Island, Emergency Management advises that visitor re-entry will not begin until a future date, sometime after September 17. As vital services are restored and the infrastructure is in place to support visitor re-entry, announcements will be made.

Visitors with travel plans to Hatteras Island, anytime over the next few weeks, should seek accommodations elsewhere in Dare County, north of Oregon Inlet. If you need help finding lodging, contact the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau at 1-877-629-4386 or visit http://www.outerbanks.org/

Hatteras Realty suggests that our guests contact Brindley Beach Vacations, Village Realty and/or Resort Realty for alternative vacation plans. Please let them know if you are a Hatteras Realty guest.


Vendors Requested to Use Special Hours

Vendors carrying commodities to resupply Hatteras Island from Stumpy Point are asked to use the hours of 12 midnight Saturday night, September 3 through 4:30 am Sunday morning and thereafter between 10:00 pm and 4:30 am.

Vendors using the early morning ferry routes will help the recovery effort and benefit from a less congested trip with faster turnaround times between Stumpy Point and Hatteras Island. The early morning hours are intended to help vendors avoid being intermingled with the staged re-entry of residents that starts at 6:00 am beginning Sunday morning.


STAGED RE-ENTRY FOR RESIDENTS OF HATTERAS ISLAND

A staged re-entry for residents of Hatteras Island begins 6:00 a.m. Sunday, September 4. The staged re-entry will start with the villages of Buxton, Hatteras, and Frisco. Conditions, utility service and other supporting infrastructure in those villages is the most conducive for re-entry at this time. As conditions improve in the remaining villages, re-entry will be established and announced as soon as possible.

Re-entry will originate at the NCDOT Ferry dock at Stumpy Point, on the Dare County Mainland. The re-entry times are staggered throughout the day in order to avoid long lines and further inconvenience.

Prior to entering the ferry, the vehicle operator must present a driver’s license showing a local address for the Village designated for re-entry with a last name matching the alphabetically indexed ferry boarding times.
