When in doubt, throw it out.

Your refrigerator will keep food safe for up to 4 hours during a power outage. Discard refrigerated perishable food such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs, and leftovers after 4 hours without power.

After a power outage never taste food to determine its safety.

It's never a good idea to go out driving around after a storm until you are told it's safe to do so, but if you must go out, watch for the following:

โ€ข Downed trees blocking the road ๐ŸŒณ
โ€ข Other obstructions in the road like trash/recycling carts ๐Ÿ—‘๏ธ
โ€ข Downed power lines that may be live ๐Ÿ”Œ
โ€ข Flooded streets ๐ŸŒŠ
โ€ข If you come to a dark traffic light, treat it as a 4-way stop. ๐Ÿšฆ

If you come to a flooded road, DO NOT try to go through the water. There may be obstructions under the water that you can't see and the water may be deeper than you think. Remember, Turn Around, Don't Drown!

Wilmington, let's have an honest conversation. We've never experienced something quite like COVID-19 before. The uncertainty of everything -- from the illness itself to job security -- can be overwhelming. Thereโ€™s a lot we donโ€™t know about this situation, but thereโ€™s a lot we do know: We know we're working hard to ensure the health and safety of our residents, visitors, and employees. We know we're following the precautions put forth by the CDC and state. We know, that no matter what, weโ€™ll be with you every step of the way.

Weโ€™ve created a web page (www.wilmingtonnc.gov/coronavirus) dedicated to local updates and resources. It includes everything from operational details to a small school toolkit to keep the kids busy and learning while out of school. The website will be updated regularly, as will our social media feeds.

Take a deep breath. Wash your hands thoroughly. Keep at least six feet apart from everyone. Tip if you get takeout. The resiliency of our community is unmatched. No matter if it's a hurricane or a pandemic, we know how to adapt. Wilmington, we will be ok because we are #ILMStrong.

โ€œGentleโ€ density can save our neighborhoods

"But as communities across the U.S. grapple with worsening housing affordability, there is growing interest in how zoning rules could be relaxed to allow smaller, less expensive homes, as in Minneapolis. Often, the choice is posed as a trade-off between detached homes with big yards or skyscraping apartment towers. In reality, the housing stock in most communities is much more diverse than these two extremes. While high-rise apartments in strategic locations should be part of the solution, many single-family neighborhoods could easily yield more housingโ€”and more affordable housingโ€”if land use rules allowed โ€œgentleโ€ increases in density, such as townhomes, two- to four-family homes, and small-scale apartment or condominium buildings." https://www.brookings.edu/research/gentle-density-can-save-our-neighborhoods/

Malls are dying. The thriving ones are spending millions to reinvent themselves.

Big changes are coming to Wilmington's mall.
โ€œThere was an explosion of one-level malls with four anchor stores, a dreary food court and a carousel in the middle,โ€ said Nicholson of Syracuse. โ€œDevelopers realized they could put a large, flat building in the middle of a field and quickly make money โ€” so for decades, in the โ€™60s, โ€™70s and โ€™80s, thatโ€™s what they did.โ€
https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2019/11/22/malls-are-dying-only-these-ones-have-figured-out-secrets-success-internet-age/?arc404=true

In the past decade, as shopping dollars migrated online and a parade of well-known retailers toppled, the malls that didnโ€™t evolve fast enough stumbled into a devastating cycle of dwindling traffic, lower sales and disappearing storefronts.

ROAD CLOSURE REMINDER: River Road will be closed between Raleigh St and Sunnyvale Drive starting TOMORROW. A temporary signal is being installed at the intersection of Carolina Beach Road and Sunnyvale Drive to accommodate northbound traffic turning left onto Carolina Beach Road.

HURRICANE FLORENCE REPAIRS UNDERWAY: This is one of several large repair projects the city is undertaking in the next phase of efforts to repair damages to streets, sidewalks and drainage systems across the city that were damaged during Hurricane Florence.
