About two dozen residents sought shelter in Onslow County after evacuation were order Thursday night.
The Red Cross shelter at North Topsail Shores Baptist Church in Sneads Ferry provided a safe place for 22 people Thursday night.
Residents were able to return to their homes early this morning.
Red Cross workers say once the shelter population reached zero, the decision was made to close the shelter.
The Red Cross says they can reopen the facility again rather quickly if necessary.
