(Pitt County) — In light of the most recent forecasts involving Hurricane Florence, Pitt County Government is issuing a weather-related travel advisory, beginning at 8:00pm on Thursday, September 13, 2018. This advisory applies to unincorporated areas of Pitt County. Additional restrictions may be placed by individual municipal governments. Conditions will be monitored and this advisory will be adjusted as warranted.
Safety is a highest concern, both for those in our first responder and public services communities, as well as all residents of Pitt County. As weather conditions deteriorate, travel by any means will become increasingly dangerous, placing travelers, and those who may be called to their rescue at continual risk. If not done so already, all residents are strongly encouraged to finalize sheltering and general traveling plans now.
