Dear Upcoming Vacationers,
We are making headway in the area towards a fantastic recovery from Hurricane Florence. Many parts of the area now have power and water; internet and cellular service are still very spotty in areas as it comes and goes. This is one of the first opportunities we've had to send a message of this kind. Please watch our Facebook Storm Page for the most current and easily posted information.
At this time, no one but emergency personnel are allowed onto Topsail Island. This is change from yesterday when we expected to be allowed to enter the island today. Tomorrow, business owners and property owners will be permitted into Surf City and Topsail Beach. We will then have a better idea of what the situation is and will be in the near future and upcoming stays. Currently there is not a definite plan in place for the town of North Topsail Beach.
Until we can make an assessment on the island, we do not know much other than the following:
- If you were to scheduled to vacation this current week: Sept 15th week time frame, we will be reaching out to you when we are able to help file CSA Travel Protection Claims or possibly reschedule vacations.
- If you are scheduled to arrive next week: Sept 22nd week time frame, it does not look like you will be able to come at this point in time. We will be reaching out to you to help file CSA Travel Protection Claims or possibly reschedule vacations.
- If you are scheduled to arrive the following week or beyond Sept. 29th, we will hopefully know more tomorrow and will reach out to you within the next few days.
We will be reaching out to every guest individually as soon as we are able. We may not have answers for all the questions you might have. If you purchased the CSA Travel Protection Insurance, we do suggest reaching out to them immediately to start a claim if you were scheduled to come in the Sept. 8th through 24th time frame. Their website is: http://www.csaclaims.com/ and their phone number is: toll-free nationwide (877) 300-8670.
We will assist with any claims just as soon as we are able. If you did not purchase the CSA Travel Protection insurance, we do not know more at this time, but hope to within the next week.
Inland NC is severely flooded. Please do not attempt to travel to our area until you have heard from us. The majority of our staff and local population did evacuate for storm, and they have not been able to return to their homes yet either due to inland flooding. Those residents, employees, and local population that did stay in the area for the storm are currently very busy addressing their own damages/emergencies/flooding/fallen trees/etc. and for neighbors, family, and friends. While it’s safe to say that our Topsail Island Areas did not receive much Major Damage as a whole, there is a lot of minimal damage everywhere which requires everyone’s attention short term. Damage to properties is on a case by case basis. Utilities are now restored to about half of the area.
We do not have phone service as of yet. Please do not respond to us via email, as we cannot check it or respond to it as of this time.
Local recovery efforts have been swift, considering the swath/size of Florence. Topsail will be back and open; better than ever. We will keep you posted as learn more.
Many of you that we have been able to communicate with at this time: we truly appreciate your support, understanding, and patience. It's good to know Topsail and Century 21 Action has such a strong support base. Together, Topsail will be better than ever, and the beach we all love.
Thank you for your understanding, patience, and prayers.
