Outage on the NC outer banks reported in Wa Post
      #1740017 - 07/31/17 09:20 PM (72.93.12.135)

How bad is this? It is a short story and states it could not be resolved for 2 weeks! Anyone there that can elucidate? Family members have 4 families renting on Topsail NC starting Sat Aug 5.

I'm not exactly sure where Topsail is, but I assume it is in the affected area?? My understanding is that the outage is expected to be a minimum of a week, and probably two weeks. I feel really badly for all the property owners in the area and all those who planned on vacationing there. I would do a google search for more updated information, but I kind of doubt it will be fixed by this weekend. Best wishes!

Topsail is not affected - no where near affected islands. As far as I have read, only affected areas are Hatteras and Ocracoke Islands.

Topsail is south of the affected area. My daughter owns a home there and says she is not affected.

Judy, just to set your mind at ease, we live on the intercostal just across front North Topsail Beach, just minutes from the beach. This area has no power outages! The power outage is only affecting the lower half of the Outerbanks, which is some 3 to 4 hour drive, to the north of us. So just wanted to let you know. Tell your family to come on down, the power is great, and the weather right NOW is even better! Good luck, and have a Great vacation!
