Animal Stress, Exposure

Veterinarians should be aware that health problems may arise as a result of exposure to all of the materials that were released in the flooding, as well as stress related illnesses in both companion animals and in livestock.

If you notice any of these signs, please contact Claire Holley at NCVMA, 919-851-5850.

Mortality Management

Owners of livestock/poultry are responsible for the proper disposal of mortality from natural disasters. View a PDF with guidance information on mass mortality management in the event of a catastrophic natural disaster.

Flood Conditions

Inland Flooding: Flood waters continue to recede, but dangerous conditions still remain in some areas. All rivers are forecast to be below flood stage by 10/24.

Coastal Flooding: Minor coastal flooding will be possible along the Pamlico Sound as flood waters combine with the higher than normal tides. An elevated risk of rip currents continues along the coast.
