Outer Island Storm Damage Survey - June 2013
The island is open and a great place to visit; the pier has been shored up and is safe; the new floating dock is in perfect shape. However the paths are limited and the access to many places are not safe. Please respect all marked areas (many marked with orange cones, tape, and signage) and continue to enjoy the island safely.
