— Written By

Hurricane Florence has forced one of the largest evacuations in US history. VisitNC is collecting and updating information regarding accommodations for evacuees looking for relocation. Using this information, VisitNC and welcome centers will be operating as a call center for those in need–visitors and locals alike.

If you must evacuate and have relocation questions, call 1-800-847-4862 (1-800-VISITI-NC).

Operating hours are extended until 8 p.m. on Wednesday (9/12, today) and will operate 24/7 beginning Thursday (9/13).

In preparing, download the ReadyNC app. The app gives information on real-time traffic as well as weather conditions, river levels, evacuations, and power outages.
