TOWN OF BELVILLE PREPARES FOR TROPICAL STORM IAN

Belville – The National Hurricane Center issued an advisory which includes a Tropical
Storm Warning for Brunswick County. This advisory indicates that it is very likely that
the Town of Belville will receive some effects from Tropical Storm Ian, if it remains on
the same path as it is now traveling.


Mayor Mike Allen and the Commissioners request that all residents, property owners,
boating interests and construction sites make preparations in securing their property. All
residents are advised to secure outdoor furniture, building materials, boats and any
other objects that could blow around in high winds.


“While we have been through stronger storms in recent years, we cannot let our guard
down, become complacent, and avoid taking precautions,” said Mayor Mike
Allen. “There is nothing wrong with being overly prepared for any tropical system. It is
my wish that everyone remains safe.”


Town officials are in constant contact with emergency management officials and the
weather service and will provide you with updated information as it is received. Keep
your vehicles fueled and familiarize yourself with locations of emergency shelters and
the best possible routes to them. A list of shelters can be found at https://readync.org.


All residents with special needs are encouraged to register with the Brunswick County
Emergency Services Department by calling (910)253-5383 or completing the special
medical needs form online at http://www.brunswickcountync.gov/emergency/ems/. For
