Dare County and the towns of Duck, Southern Shores, Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills, Nags Head and Manteo, are in the process of updating the Dare-Currituck County Hazard Mitigation Plan. Local governments are required to prepare and update hazard mitigation plans in order to be eligible for FEMA disaster relief assistance.
One component of the process is the solicitation of public input on hazards that affect the Outer Banks and appropriate responses to these hazards. An online survey is available at www.obx-hmp.com The online survey will take no more than 5 minutes to complete and your feedback is valuable. For more information on the 2019 Outer Banks Hazard Mitigation Plan update, please visit www.obx-hmp.com.
The League of Women Voters of Dare County, in conjunction with the N.C. Coastal Federation, presented a forum to highlight updates in offshore oil drilling and seismic testing along the N.C. Coast. Opportunities for the public to contact federal elected officials were also shared. This segment was produced by the Town of Kill Devil Hills, and will also broadcast on Current Television (Charter Spectrum channel 191)
Because of last December's winter storm, potholes are appearing earlier than normal across the state. They are caused by water seeping into cracks in the road and ice forming. Those cracks widen, causing the asphalt to rise while traffic loosens the pavement eventually creating a hole in the road.
You can help expedite repairs by letting NCDOT know where potholes are located on STATE roadways by visiting NCDOT's website: https://www.ncdot.gov/contact/Pages/form.aspx?UnitName=pothole&sourceUrl=/contact/
For all other KDH roads, contact the Town's Public Services Department at 252-480-4080.
