Pipe Damaged by Hurricane Matthew to Be Replaced

Drivers traveling north from Holly Shelter Road on N.C. 210 should be aware that a closure and detour is beginning Monday, March 20, and continuing through April 3.

The closure is necessary for Department of Transportation crews to replace a drainage pipe. The existing pipe was severely damaged by Hurricane Matthew and no longer functions.

A signed detour will use N.C. 201, U.S. 17, I-140 and I-40. Motorists are advised to expect possible delays while traveling in the area and are urged to seek alternate routes.

“Since this a total closure, drivers should plan their trips in advance and prepare for possible delays,” said Jacksonville Resident Engineer Trevor Carroll. “Please stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.”

For real-time travel information, visit DriveNC.gov or follow NCDOT on Twitter.

Pender County received new aerial imagery that was captured in early 2016.  The new imagery was funded by the NC911 Board and will support 911 communications as well as local government’s needs.  The imagery is free for download through the NC OneMap Geospatial Portal.

Along with adding the new imagery to our GIS website, there were also updates that included new search options and a new tool.  You can now easily search for cemeteries from the main search tab instead of having to use the “Query” tool.

 Regional flooding and debris from Hurricane Matthew may bring a tide of scam artists who promise home repairs. Scam artists will leave property owners high and dry.

“In previous weather events, we have heard reports of home owners who paid deposits on materials and the contractor never returned to complete the work,” said Randell Woodruff, Pender County manager. “We have heard reports where contractors charged outrageous fees for trimming broken limbs and not cleaning away the debris.”

Pender County officials urge residents to beware of scam artists in the aftermath of the historic floods in the county.

“Local chambers of commerce in Burgaw and the Greater Topsail area represent local reputable businesses,” said Chuck Strickland, the director of the Greater Topsail Area Chamber of Commerce. “Residents requiring home repair can find contractors on our websites or on our downloadable app.”

Residents are also urged to be alert to scam artists who claim to be gathering donations for flood victims. Residents who want to donate should give through churches, civic organizations, and to the Gateway Community Church, 416 W. Bridger St. in Burgaw. The church is serving as a distribution center. For details call Pastor Ted Mercer at 910-604-0071.

Residents are urged to report scam artists to local law enforcement agencies.

The Pender County Office of Emergency Management has issued a mandatory evacuation for the Black River Basin.

“The Black River is rising 3-5 inches per hour,” said Tom Collins, director of Pender County Emergency Management. “This is a mandatory evacuation. There are homes along the Black River that are already under water.”

“Residents west of Moores Creek National Battlefield, including all roads connecting to Canetuck Road, need to leave their homes and businesses now.”

The evacuation area also includes Borough Road and adjoining roads, Battleground Road and west of Blueberry Farm Road, Beattys Bridges Road and Ivanhoe Road.

“Evacuees may seek shelter at Malpass Corner Elementary or the Burgaw Middle School,” said Collins.

Malpass Elementary School is located at 4992 Malpass Corner Rd., Burgaw. The American Red Cross and Pender Health and Human Services are coordinating shelters. The shelter at Malpass Elementary School will open at 3 p.m. The shelter in Burgaw Middle School, 500 S. Wright St. in Burgaw, is a pet friendly shelter. Evacuees with pets should go to Burgaw Middle with proof of rabies.

“Residents should heed the mandatory evacuation,” said Collins. “The water is rising fast. We are looking a record flood levels, dating back to 1945.”

Pender County is under a State of Emergency.
