All Beaufort County government offices and facilities will remain closed the remainder of the week due to a shift in storm pattern of Hurricane Florence.

Please be prepared and continue to plan ahead of this storm, as there remains uncertainty on how it may impact Beaufort County. State, County and municipal emergency management officials are closely monitoring Hurricane Florence and are prepared to rapidly deploy resources, if necessary.

The Sheriff’s Office will continue to keep the public updated of official recommendations or instructions regarding public safety.
