HARKERS ISLAND, NC – Cape Lookout National Seashore announces that Portsmouth Village is now re-opened to the public.
Due to the effects of Hurricane Maria which caused beach erosion from higher than usual tides and rough surf in late September, the park was evacuated for safety of visitors and staff.
Portsmouth Village was fortunate not to have suffered any damage to its facilities. However, the grounds were flooded and it has taken time for the grounds to dry enough to allow for safe access.
Visitors should use caution when visiting Portsmouth as the ground may still be moist in low-lying areas.
