SURF CITY, NC (WWAY) — Residents and visitors on Topsail Island will soon have access to more weather and tide information.

According to a post on the Pender County Emergency Management Facebook page, EMS staff assisted the state of North Carolina last week with the first part of installing a complete weather station and tide gauge on the new surf city bridge.
