Dare Mainland – East Lake and Manns Harbor
Debris removal is underway in Manns Harbor. Delays have occurred due to equipment failures. Removal is expected to resume today. Construction and demolition materials will be removed first. Remaining piles will be picked up during a final sweep through unincorporated Dare County. Due to a large number of limbs and branches in the right-of-way, debris removal in East Lake will begin once crews have completed removal of the limbs and branches.

To expedite debris removal, please ensure storm-related debris is in four seperate piles in front of your property, in the right-of-way. Keep it at least 30 feet away from fire hydrants.
