In preparation for heavy rains with the potential for flooding, mudslides, and infrastructure damage predicted to occur in Montreat Mayor Tim Helms has issued a State of Emergency. Despite its southern trajectory, Hurricane Florence poses a threat of conditions that may cause widespread or severe damage, injury, or loss of life or property. The Mayor has determined that declaring a State of Emergency is necessary to maintain order and protect public health, safety, and welfare, and to secure property.
A State of Emergency declaration will be necessary to recovery efforts if Montreat suffers damage from the storm.
