Hurricane/Tropical Storm Ian is expected to impact Florida Wednesday, Sept. 28 into Thursday, Sept. 29. With evacuations now in effect for many communities along the state’s West Coast, the Fayetteville Area Convention & Visitors Bureau, area hotels and other businesses in Cumberland County are preparing to help accommodate those displaced by the storm and who are traveling north on I-95.

“As our team at the Fayetteville Area Convention & Visitors Bureau watched the threat of Hurricane Ian increase and evacuations become necessary for many Floridians, we knew we wanted to help in any way we could,” shared Interim President and CEO of the Fayetteville Area Convention & Visitors Bureau Randy Fiveash. 

FACVB  hosts a website with Emergency Management contacts and resources which can be found online here: 

A full list of available hotels is also posted online at The list includes details for evacuees such as whether hotels are pet friendly, the number of rooms they have available and the dates they are available. This list will be constantly updated to reflect changing information. 

“We have developed a unique microsite with Emergency Management contacts and resources as well as Fayetteville area hotel room availability. This will be updated frequently each day. There is so much uncertainty during a hurricane. In providing this service to our neighbors to the South, we hope to be a respite for those affected by this dangerous storm,” added Fiveash.  

Individuals can also reach the Cumberland County Hurricane Information Line by calling 910-678-7657.
