CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WECT) -

The Town of Carolina Beach is preparing for the impact of Hurricane Arthur as it grazes past the North Carolina coast.

Freeman Park was evacuated and closed around 9 a.m. Thursday, July 3. Once conditions improve and the threat of the storm passes, Freeman Park will re-open on July 4. Keep in mind these plans are subject to change depending on the weather conditions and times could vary by several hours.

The Town of Carolina Beach anticipates the Snow's Cut Bridge will remain OPEN for the duration of the storm. Officials will reassess the bridge conditions if sustained winds in excess of 45 mph are reported.

There could be flooding on Canal Drive in Carolina Beach due to high tide and storm surge. The town said roads may be barricaded and closed to traffic until the water recedes.

As a reminder, be sure to look at the flags on the lifeguard stand to determine the warning stage.

  • Green flags = clear swimming conditions
  • Yellow flags = use caution when swimming
  • Red flags = hazard , NO swimming
