Once the island has been evacuated, no one will be allowed to return until the Mayor of the Town of Carolina Beach has declared that a State of Emergency no longer exists. This is to prevent looting of homes and businesses, and to protect people from fallen power lines, flood waters, etc.
The enforcement of the restriction relating to all island residents will be accomplished by placing Law Enforcement representatives of all three agencies concerned at a designated roadblock when such restrictions are ordered.
No sightseers will be allowed on the island until all electrical power has been restored. This is to keep sightseers from interfering with Emergency Response personnel, damage assessment teams, and Duke Energy employees while in the process of restoring power and overall clean-up efforts throughout the Town.
The re-entry plan is part of the Town's Emergency Operations Plan-CLICK HERE to veiw details.
