Currituck County Government continues to monitor the forecast for Hurricane Joaquin, while current rain in the area causes localized flooding in parts of the county. Citizens are advised to not attempt to drive or walk through floodwaters and to take precautions for the safety of their families and property.

While Highway 158/168 is not flooded, some secondary roads in Currituck County are becoming completely or partially covered with water. The four-wheel drive beach road in Corolla was impassable during high tide, with strong surf reaching the dune line. Likewise, some secondary beach roads behind the dune line are experiencing standing water in spots.

The National Weather Service predicts additional rain for Currituck County through the next few days. Along with flooded roadways and property, citizens should also be aware that the overly-saturated ground may lead to downed trees during periods of strong wind.

Projected Track of Hurricane Joaquin as of October 2, 2015
