PUBLIC NOTICE

As of 12:00 PM (noon) today (09.13.18) the Town of Weaverville will begin operating under a declared State of Emergency along with Buncombe County and all other municipalities within the County.

What does this mean? It means that we may close or evacuate any area of the Town in order to preserve human life and property. In the unlikely event you are given an evacuation order you will be given information on where to go to seek shelter and assistance in getting there if required.

While Hurricane Florence has weakened significantly it remains a powerful -and potentially deadly- storm. We encourage you to make necessary plans and take all precautionary measures to keep you and your family safe during the impending weather.
