To view Hurricane Matthew Recovery Announcements - Debris-Pick-up click here: Hurricane Matthew Debris -------- Water levels on flooded Town streets in the area of the Avenues continue to recede. This entire area of Town was covered with flood waters interconnecting with each other and with existing natural water bodies, making it infeasible to attempt to pump water off any Town street and discharge it into the ocean. Emergency vehicles have been able to access this area the entire time since the storm. Due to certain flooded areas now being separated, attempts to pump remaining high water standing on certain streets to the ocean beach will occur in different locations under an emergency permit - which allows this effort as long as emergency vehicle travel is impeded on a street.
