The Dare County Control Group met this morning (Thursday) and has established the following entry guidelines for the southernmost villages of Hatteras Island:

  • Frisco – Visitors will be allowed access to the village of Frisco beginning 7 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 14.
  • Hatteras Village – Visitors will be allowed access to Hatteras Village beginning 7 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 15.

Visitors were allowed access to the Villages of Rodanthe, Waves, Salvo, Avon and most areas of Buxton beginning 7 a.m. this morning.

It is important for visitors to check with their rental company or accommodations provider to confirm reservations before traveling to the area since some properties were impacted and require repairs. Also, please be mindful that many residents and businesses of the island have suffered significant impacts and are in the process of recovering so your patience and understanding is truly appreciated.
