Carteret County Emergency Management has set up 12 food and water distribution sites in areas hit hard by Hurricane Florence.  Chief of Harkers Island Fire and Rescue Chad Mann says stores Down East haven’t been able to restock their shelves because delivery trucks aren’t able to get through.  He says this site is the only place on Harkers Island where residents can get water, canned goods, toiletries, cleaning supplies, diapers and tarps.

“We’ve had as far as Georgia, two trucks from Georgia come and drop stuff off for us.” 

In the last two days, Mann says they’ve had about 500 people stop by the distribution center. 

“They can drive right through and they’re going out just as fast as we can get them in.”

Supplies can be picked up or dropped at the Harkers Island Fire Department from 8 to 5pm.
