North Carolina expands evacuations due to Hurricane Earl

 

North Carolina officials expanded mandatory evacuation orders across new areas of the state's low-lying barrier islands on Thursday ahead of rapidly approaching Hurricane Earl.

The orders affect all visitors throughout Dare County as well as residents and visitors to the popular town of Nags Head, county emergency relief officials said.

Mandatory evacuations, similar to those already in effect for Hatteras Island and Ocracoke Island, were also ordered for the beach communities at Morehead City, authorities said.
