Hurricane Dorian Recovery

Hurricane Dorian passed by the coast of New Hanover County in the early morning hours Friday, September 6, 2019. Click the panels below for information about assistance for Hurricane Dorian recovery.

New Hanover County is not eligible for FEMA Individual Assistance as a result of Hurricane Dorian.


Many organizations in New Hanover County are helping people impacted by Hurricane Dorian. Visit the New Hanover Disaster Coalition website or call 910-338-9121 for assistance or help with cleanup and debris removal.

 

 

Because of the small amount of debris as a result of Hurricane Dorian, county-wide debris collection will not take place. Residents can bring debris to the landfill (hours of operation can be found here) as they typically do with regular yard and home maintenance.

There is no burn ban in place, but residents in the unincorporated area who plan to burn debris must apply for a free permit to burn at NCForestService.gov.

If you experienced significant damage from Hurricane Dorian, please complete the Property Damage Report for the New Hanover County Tax Department. The form can be found at Tax.NHCgov.com.

Properties that have major damage and repairs that are not completed by December 31, 2019 may be considered for an adjustment for the 2020 tax year. This will not apply to current tax bills, because 2019 tax bills are based on the condition of the property as it was on January 1, 2019.
