As of September 6, 2019, the mandatory evacuation has been lifted and visitors are once again free to enter Topsail Island.
The Town of Surf City’s silence after Hurricane Florence was deafening and sent nearly everyone into a total outrage which included actual threats of violence. However, this time around, the Town of Surf City Facebook page has been very active the last several days with great communication.
Dorian spared Topsail Island. Electric is restored. So are sewer services. Businesses are opening back up. Water is running. After Dorian and all other hurricanes there’s a water boil in effect which is expected to be lifted around September 10th. Town Hall will reopen September 9.
Below is a press release from the Town of Surf City about the reopening of the beach and beach access points after Dorian.
