RALEIGH, North Carolina — With Tropical Storm Arthur approaching, consumers planning a vacation on the North Carolina coast are advised to know their rights if they've rented a house or reserved a hotel room.

Attorney General Roy Cooper says people should check with their hotel or rental agency to know what to expect if they need to evacuate or cannot reach their destination.

Cooper says if consumers are unable to reach their vacation rental property, contact the rental agency or landlord. He said any refund would depend upon the specific situation, such as whether alternate routes are open.

Many consumers have booked hotel rooms for the Fourth of July weekend. He said if consumers are concerned that they may not be able to keep their reservation due to severe weather, contact the hotel immediately.
