Town News: Hurricane Michael Advisory 3

Hurricane Michael Update

October 11, 2018 – 4:00 p.m.

Holden Beach has been spared and blessed again! Hurricane Michael passed north of Holden Beach in central North Carolina.

The high tide late this morning did not damage the oceanfront grass line. It did erode some frontal dunes and damage some boardwalks in the Holden Beach West subdivision.

The canals overall did well. Only a few came out of their bulkheads. The damage was not serious.

Shingles suffered again. There are multiple houses with shingle damage and some with siding damage. There is nowhere near the damage to homes delivered by by Florence.

There were no bridge closings and no streets flooded by the rain.

Overall Holden Beach faired well!

Josh was born with sand between his feet and salt air in his lungs. As a kid, you could have found him riding his bike to old Jeff's Grocery for a few candy treats or merrily working the checkout counter at Beach Mart.
