Charlotte, NC (July 5, 2014) – Local and state officials have reported minor impacts following Hurricane Arthur’s Independence Day landfall along the coast of North Carolina.  Emergency crews continue to make progress in restoring isolated power outages and impacted areas.  The latest information is available at

From its network of locations along and east of Interstate 95, The Salvation Army was prepared for the hurricane and served in local communities when requested.  The organization’s feeding assistance was discontinued Friday morning after shelters were closed.  Salvation Army leaders along the coast continue to coordinate with county emergency management officials in their service area to respond as required or requested.

The Salvation Army is thankful to all of its partners, donors and volunteers for their support before, during and after the storm. The organization could not provide the same level of service without the help of others. The Salvation Army will now return its focus to meeting the basic needs of those in communities across the two states.

As the first named storm of the Atlantic Hurricane Season is long gone, The Salvation Army encourages everyone along the North and South Carolina coastline to remain prepared.  Helpful information for those in North Carolina is available at  The official 2014 South Carolina Hurricane Guide is available for download at the website of South Carolina Emergency Management Division,
