Wayne County Announces Hurricane Shelter Locations

OES Director Mel Powers Jr. announces the following shelter locations in Wayne County for individuals during Hurricane Florence:

  • Wayne Academy at 801 N Lionel St in Goldsboro
  • Spring Creek High School at 4340 Indian Springs Road in Seven Springs
  • Carver Elementary School at 400 Old Seven Springs Road in Mount Olive
  • Tommy’s Road Elementary School at 1150 Tommy’s Road in Goldsboro

Additional shelters for overflow will be announced later, if needed.

The shelters will open Thursday, September 13, 2018 at 10 AM. Lunch will not be served on Thursday but meals will be provided beginning Thursday evening.

Shelter residents should bring personal hygiene items, medication, specific supplies for: infants, children, and elderly. Pets are not allowed at these shelters with the exception of designated service animals.

Wayne County is committed to the safety of our residents, and our Emergency Management Staff has been working diligently to prepare for this storm.

Wayne County is a tier 2 county under the North Carolina Coastal Regional Evacuation and Sheltering Plan and is tasked with moving as many evacuees west of I- 95 in advance of the storm. This allows a greater influx into the shelters closest to impact. For this reason, the shelter locations are disclosed later than counties to our west.
