We at Arts of the Pamlico, are grateful and humbled in the wake of Hurricane Florence. We are grateful the theatre sustained minor water damage, grateful our staff and families are safe and moving into cleanup phase now, grateful that you as our community have shown over and over the meaning of the word community. Feeding your neighbors, or applauding linemen, first and emergency response teams. Everything you have done thus far to go out of your way to show others their value, and your appreciation. That is the meaning of being part of a community like ours. The storm has humbled us, shown us what even a minor category one can do to our community and others. Thank you for your continued support of not only AOP and all the businesses downtown, but in our community and of your neighbors and selves. Stay strong as we all move forward, the process will not be overnight nor simple. Thank you BOCO, stay strong! ... See MoreSee Less

WHDA ChamberofCommerce⚠Good morning City of Washington! Please review Hurricane Florence updates as of 9:00 am this Saturday.⚠

🚗Street Conditions🚗

➡Water still remains in approximately 50% of our street system.

➡The Police Department has “coned” off those streets that still have water remaining. Several cars are stranded within the Central Business District and efforts are being made to move the cars in order to travel once Water Street is open.

➡Our offices have had numerous calls concerning River Road. The City of Washington has no jurisdiction on River Road. NCDOT controls the access and maintenance from Washington Park to the Washington Country Club. Once again, certain Streets within the City of Washington are controlled by NCDOT.

➡Currently the city has no trees that haven fallen across our rights of way.


👩‍🚒Fire/Rescue/EMS👩‍🚒

➡ The count of people evacuated remains at approximately 300 persons; EMS transports total 12; Fire responses total 11. We have created a modified shift to allow our personnel rest. Normal shift rotation will begin Sunday.


💡Electric💡

➡All of circuits are up and running. Approximately 300 customers still remain out of service. Our crews along with outside crews assisting our lineman should have most of the electrical services back on by 4:00 p.m. Power will be restored today at 4:00 p.m. within the Central Business District.


💦Public Works💦

➡All of our drinking water is safe and we have ample supply still remaining in our system.


➡Sewer lift stations are slowly coming back on through our system. We are still using portable generators and service is on-going.


➡The Jack’s Creek pump station is still operating off our electrical system and all of our pumps are at capacity to remove water adjacent to the creek and the central part of the city.


💦WATER IS SLOWLY MOVING OUT IN THE CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICT INTO THE PAMLICO RIVER.💦💦


➡Water from the hurricane pushed water up to the intersection of Market and Main Street. This morning at 6:00 am the water has moved down Market Street within 6 feet of Water Street. If this trend continues all of the water should be gone by Monday afternoon around 4:00 P.M.


👷‍♀️NORMAL SHIFT ROTATIONS👷‍♀️

➡All of our shift personnel with resume their normal shift rotation work beginning Monday, September 17, 2018.

Thank you all for your understanding, patience, and comments during these difficult times.

🚨PLEASE BE SAFE TODAY. It's not quite over yet as clean up has yet to begin!🚨
