Power Now Restored, 8/4/17, Ocracoke, NC, off the AICW in Pamlico Sound

8/4/17: Power has now been restored on both Ocracoke and Hatteras islands.


7/28: Our thanks to readers Henry and Rose Litke and Rick Simpson for sending this important information. There is no time frame for repairs to be completed. This power outage and mandatory evacuation will certainly impact the travel plans of many folks.
Ocracoke is a charming town to visit at anytime. There are three choices for mooring: Ocracoke National Park Service Docks, Anchorage Marina and Silver Lake Anchorage.

Ocracoke has no power – and as a result they are evacuating visitors to the island.

From NC DOT:
The N.C. Department of Transportation Ferry Division is assisting with the visitor evacuation of Ocracoke Island due to an anticipated long-term power outage. Hyde County Emergency Management issued a mandatory evacuation order for all island visitors beginning at 5 p.m. Thursday, July 27.
There is no deadline on when visitors leave but Hyde County is requesting that all visitors attempt to be off the island by noon on Friday, July 28.

That means that as of 5 p.m. today, only residents, property owners, emergency personnel, vendors and critical infrastructure providers with Ocracoke re-entry documentation are allowed on ferries inbound to Ocracoke.

Priority boarding is suspended for all vessels leaving Ocracoke, and tolls will be waived for ferries on trips between Ocracoke and Cedar Island or Swan Quarter.

Evacuation procedures will remain in effect for all Ocracoke ferries until Hyde County emergency officials lift the order.

Power has been out on Ocracoke and Hatteras since 4:30a this morning. Reports indicate construction workers building the new Bonner Bridge drove steel casing into a power transmission cable. The fix won’t be quick, estimates running from days to weeks.
