Power is beginning to be restored across town. If you don’t have it now, it shouldn’t be long. We are so appreciative of the fast response from Jones Onslow.
An assessment of the town streets show sand and vegetative debris on the road. Some quantities of debris, mostly pieces of siding and the occasional roof shingle, are also visible around town. Although all roads are passable, please use caution when traveling in and around Town.
Isaias came through Topsail Beach overnight as a strong Tropical Storm. Unofficial reports show sustained winds at 47 mph with the strongest gust at 77 mph. Rainfall totals were less than 2”. Initial damage assessments this morning are consistent with what we would expect from a strong tropical storm. Vegetative debris, sand on the roads, some power and cable lines down, and minor siding and roof damage. Power is out in all of Topsail Beach but Jones-Onslow EMC crews are working hard to restore power quickly.
A more detailed message will come once we get more information.
