According to the National Weather Service, there was measurable, if negligible, snowfall in Dare County from the overnight storm in our region. An accumulation map shows .5 inches of snow in Manns Harbor, .1 inches in Colington and .5 inches in Southern Shores. Somewhat larger amounts fell around places such as Elizabeth City (2.7 inches) and Moyock (2 inches).

Meanwhile, Sandy Semans, Chief of the Stumpy Point Fire and Rescue Department, posted this warning earlier on the morning of Jan. 28.

“Stumpy Point Volunteer Fire Department has already been called out twice this morning for wrecks on 264. There is no job worth dying for or putting someone else’s life in jeopardy. Put on your sweats, curl up with a good book and keep your butts – and vehicles – off the road until they are safe for driving.”
