Galley Stores Marina New Bern NC Closed "Because of the damage we’ve sustained, road closures, and lack of power, we are unsure as to when we will reopen. As we know the city is working as hard as they can and are doing all in their power to get our city back on its feet, we have not pushed them for a timeframe, nor will we. Thank you for your patience, thoughts and prayers as we get Galley Stores and Made in NC back up and running! #newbernstrong" - Marina's Facebook Page Marina

9/21/18 09:47:00 River Dunes Marina Oriental NC  Open

"Power restored 9/18." "Homes, boats and docks are safe and sound." - Marina's Facebook Page



Port City Marina Wilmington NC Closed "Power is restored at the marina, but not yet on the docks. These are the main issues stalling power being restored on the docks:
  • Our main breaker box was damaged in the storm. Unsure of the amount of damage this caused.
  • Although everything may visually look ok, there may be damage to the system outside of what we can see.
  • The electricians were called a few days ago and are making plans to check the system and return power to the marina. This is expected to occur before Monday. However, many people were displaced by the flooding.
If the appropriate protocol is not followed prior to turning on power to the docks, we could potentially be dealing with a much bigger issue. Please rest assured knowing we are trying our very best to get the marina back up and functioning 100%." - Marina's Facebook Page


Wilmington Marine Center Wilmington NC Advisory "All docks in tact, many trees down As of 11:50 9/17/18, water has not breached bulkead. Mike Loch has already contacted owners with damaged boats. Be safe. Travel to the marina is not advised at this time." - Marina's Facebook Page
