Town Newsletter: December 18, 2023

The unusual weather this weekend caused rough seas, high tides, very little wind damage, several streets were flooded, some beach erosion and approximately a thousand tires to wash upon the beach strand (from an offshore fish reef constructed by the state of North Carolina years ago) and some trash relocated due to water and wind.

The sustained winds were less than 45 MPH, we had seven inches of rain and the tide was three feet above normal.

The tires are scheduled for removal immediately by the state of North Carolina thanks to the quick action of David Hewett and Town staff.

The Holden Beach Chapel Christmas cantata was held last night despite the storm. The attendance was great and music was wonderful as usual.

Most of the island’s Christmas decorations faired well during the storm. Santa should be able to find the Holden Beach lights during his trip south.

The regular Town meeting is tomorrow night at 5:00 p.m. The newly elected officials will be sworn in as scheduled.

Happy holidays to all!
