Most of the houses now have a late check in time. I think a lot of people are counting on coming very early and just hanging around and waiting to get in. If the mandate is issued at noon and check in isn't until four or five, I don't see why the companies would be obligated to admit them.
For COVID, nobody was kicked out. The bridge closure just prevented new people from arriving. I thought weather events were evacuations and rental companies and hotels would require people to leave after they have arrived if an evac order is issued. Do I misunderstand? Agree with GregMD, that if no order is in place at check-in time, they would have to be allowed in. Although I suppose for AirBnB or other cases where you rent directly from the owner you might be able to stay. Many people I have listened to or spoke with have a feeling they have been through a small wind storm and so they think a hurricane is just a bit worse, they soon find out it is really no fun and it is scary.
I heard mandatory evacuation as of noon today
I heard mandatory evacuation as of noon todayHeard from where?
I was in an OF rental house for Hurricane Dennis in 1999. It was probably a low 1 and, at first, Dare did not order evacuation. It was harrowing! No power, howling winds for hour after hour, heavy Adirondack chairs slamming from one end of the deck to the other, ocean spray soaking 3rd floor windows and THEN we were evacuated. I swore I would never stay during another storm. Now we own a house (primary residence) that is not OF and the decision-making has changed a bit. We would likely stay unless it was a 3 or higher (maybe...).
Work told us this morning that Dare will be evacuating today. Management was informed by someone on the board.
Work told us this morning that Dare will be evacuating today. Management was informed by someone on the board. If this is accurate and a decision has been made over an hour ago, what's the point in not letting everyone know then and there? There are thousands of people with little kids, babies, elderly parents, dogs etc in route right now. Every hour you save them driving is huge.
