Update from Cape Hatteras Electrical Cooperative:

12:00pm UPDATE: Buxton & Frisco are currently being temporarily powered by the diesel generators. Residents & visitors in these villages - please TURN OFF your AC and conserve your usage.

We are experiencing an island-wide power outage. Cape Hatteras Electric Cooperative (CHEC) has crews on the scene to work on repairs. The current plan is to switch the island over to generated power. Villages will be brought back onto the power grid gradually. As they do this, they have asked that all of our guests and residents conserve power.
