Hurricane Florence – South Carolina, North Carolina, Mid-Atlantic Region Pay Close Attention….

As of the 11:00am advisory Florence has become a category one hurricane with rapid strengthening anticipated over the next 36 hours.  The forecast track is still uncertain; however, residents of South and North Carolina and the Mid-Atlantic region should pay close attention. There is a reasonable possibility Florence could be a multi-day event for the east coast – hovering for several days next weekend – SEE HERE (hit play)

Coastal residents of the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic should pay close attention; and begin carrying out the beginning of a proactive hurricane plan.  Florence will likely approach the coast sometime on Thursday; residents have four full days for preparation. This specific storm has the signature forecast for of a major multi-day power outage.

[National Hurricane Center] At 1100 AM AST (1500 UTC), the center of Hurricane Florence was located by a NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft near latitude 24.4 North, longitude 56.3 West. Florence is moving toward the west near 6 mph (9 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue today. A west-northwestward motion with an increase in forward speed is expected by Monday, and that motion is forecast to continue through mid-week.

On the forecast track, the center of Florence will move over the southwestern Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda and the Bahamas Tuesday and Wednesday, and approach the southeastern U.S. coast on Thursday.

Aircraft data indicate that maximum sustained winds have increased to near 75 mph (120 km/h) with higher gusts. Florence is forecast to rapidly strengthen to a major hurricane by Monday, and is expected to remain an extremely dangerous major hurricane through Thursday. (link)

The concerning aspect to this storm is the possibility it may make landfall and hover, wobble and position in place, on the eastern seaboard; very similar to Hurricane Harvey in Houston Texas last year.  –SEE HERE (hit play)  Under this scenario major flooding and massive ‘prolonged’ (week +) power outages would be anticipated.

For those in the southeast and mid-atlantic; remember, planning and proactive measures taken now can significantly reduce stress in the days ahead.  Plan when to make the best decision on any evacuation (if needed) consider Tuesday night the decision time-frame. As a general rule: take cover from wind – but evacuate away from water.

DAY ONE (Today)

  • Determine Your Risk
  • Make a Written Plan
  • Develop and Evacuation Plan

DAY TWO (Monday)

  • Get Storm Update
  • Assemble and Purchase Hurricane Supplies
  • Contact Insurance Company – Updates
  • Secure Important Papers.

DAY THREE (Tuesday)

  • Get Storm Update
  • Strengthen and Secure Your Home
  • Make Evacuation Decision for your Family.

DAY FOUR (Wednesday)

  • Get Storm Update
  • Re-Evaluate your Supplies based on storm update
  • Flex Time

DAY FIVE (Thursday)

  • Get Storm Update
  • Assist Your Neighbors
  • Re-Evaluate w/ Storm Update
  • If Needed – Evacuate Your Family

Communication is important.  Update your contact list. Stay in touch with family and friends, let them know your plans. Select a single point of contact for communication from you that all others can then contact for updates if needed.  Today/tomorrow are good days to organize your important papers, insurance forms, personal papers and place them in one ‘ready-to-go’ location.

Evaluate your personal hurricane and storm supplies; update and replace anything you might have used. Assess, modify and/or update any possible evacuation plans based on your location, and/or any changes to your family status.

Check your shutters and window coverings; test your generator; re-organize and familiarize yourself with all of your supplies and hardware. Check batteries in portable tools; locate tools you might need; walk your property to consider what you may need to do based on the storms path. All decisions are yours. You are in control.

Due to coastal populations, a southeast storm means adding almost a day to any movement plans based on roads and traffic density. Being proactive now helps to keep any future stress level low. You are in control. If you have pets, additional plans may be needed.

One possible proactive measure is to make a list of hotels further inland that you would consider evacuating to.  Make that list today/tomorrow and follow updates of the storms’ progress.

Depending on later information you might call in advance and make a reservation; you can always cancel if not needed.  It is better to have a secondary evacuation place established in advance.  Being proactive reduces stress.  Even if you wait until much later to cancel, it is better to pay a cancellation fee (usually one night charge) than to not have a plan on where to go.   Trust me, it’s worth it.  Protect your family. Make the list of possibilities today, make the booking decision in the next 48 hrs.

Look over the National Hurricane Center resources for planning assistance.

      Yes we have a major hurricane barreling towards and there are two tropical storms Helene and Isaac in the eastern Atlantic moving west. Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria came one after another. If the current three systems do the same please post the Suspicious Cat.

        We hit the statistical high point of the storm system in three days. Three (or more) active storms in the Atlantic is not out of the ordinary for mid August.

        Excellent recap and prep lists by Sundance. If one’s never faced this type of situation before, or did as a kid and not as the one in charge, or even if you just have relatives close to the path, it can be nerve wracking. But just like everything else, being prepared and paying attention (as well as following instructions of professionals who are paid to know this stuff) is the key. A well prepared population can mitigate most of the terror of a big hurricane. Stay smart, stay safe.

    This is a good video to pay attention to. This meteorologist is located in Raleigh. I’m on the SE coast of the state where the center may likely come ashore. Several important points are discussed here such as wind and flood threats. One of the last points he makes here is not to focus to much on the center of the cone. It’s good advice since we know these storms can wobble just slightly right or left of the projected path.

      HI Pam, LEAVE. These things are not a joke. Don’t go to higher ground, the winds will be stronger there. Go north or south of landfall, and do it early to avoid the logjam. It’s not the logjam that is the problem, it’s the availability of fuel – gasoline. Been there and have four t-shirts.

      On the way out avoid the Interstate system. Everyone else will be on those. And hotels will fill up for hundreds of miles.

      Plan now and get going early. Think of it as a vacation. It’s what we do here in FL. That because what we leave behind is out of our hands….

    What has happened to the potential tracking analysis? They used to post maybe 40 computer models based on past paths and current wind patterns.

    I read a note a few days ago that said since they started tracking, no hurrican following this trajectory has come within 200 miles of land.
    I am not trying to dismiss the severity and danger of this storm, it is always better to err on the side of caution.

    There has been so much doom and gloom from the past administration about the coming horrors of climate change that just don’t materialize.

    Has anyone blamed PDJT yet??

      In 1938, before they started naming hurricanes, a category 5 hurricane on this same trajectory suddenly veered north and came within 100 miles of Cape Hatteras The storm itself accelerated to 40mph+ and the wind speed dropped to a sustained 120 mph with gusts up to 150 mph as the eye hit Bellport on eastern Long Island. Because the storm moved so fast, the press dubbed it the Long Island Express. ( Not to be confused with I-495, the Long Island Expressway, which is the world’s longest parking lot.) 25 -35 ft. waves hit Long Island and parts of Long Island became islands in their own right. The water in New York harbor rose 7 feet in a half hour. The category 3 storm continued across Long Island Sound and into New England. When it entered Vermont, still a category 1 storm, it became the only tropical cyclone to ever hit the state at full hurricane force. In the storm’s aftermath, cats and dogs were seen living together. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1938_New_England_hurricane

        My parents told me tales of that hurricane, as they both were 10 years old. There was no warning, it came so fast, so children were released from school in the worst part of the storm. My father lived at the shoreline, Northford or Hamden CT I think, and while walking home a friend’s mother picked them up in her car. He recalled that they had to make a lot of detours due to fallen trees and powerlines. Long Island and Rhode Island were hit especially hard.

      I’ve lived in SE NC my entire life. I’ve seen all kinds of hurricanes. Some are just a blip on the radar and some are worse. The best advice I can give you is to listen to your local officials and to forecasts from your local meteorologists. Depending on where you are, you may have to evacuate or maybe not. The track is still a little uncertain, since we are about four or five days out, and there is talk of the storm possibly stalling inland after landfall along the NC or SC (if that indeed does occur) for a few days.

      Look at the top of this thread for the tips that Sundance has posted as far as preparation goes. You can’t go wrong by this simple straightforward advice. 🙂

      Welcome to NC, Sunny D! If you are on FaceBk, join a local group, many communities have one up and running for emergencies and local information. Also your county should have a phone app for emergency messages. Listen to local news and authorities and follow their advice. Many shelters will be opening if this thing follows the projection. Local church groups are a good source of aid and information also. Be prepared, doing so will allay fear; even though none of us are in charge of what happens, the aftermath is easier to deal with when advance planning has been done. Regarding the facebook groups, members of my community are volunteering now to help elderly residents and homeowners board up and evac if needed. People are great!

      What to Think: Sundance’s five day plan shown above..

      What to Expect: If near the eye or on the north side of the eye.. Think of the worst thunderstorm you have ever experienced, times that by the category number, which will last in intensity for 12 to 18 hours long..

      If you are on the coast: You can watch the seawater roll in and rise and rise, seemingly out of nowhere.. rapidly. The whole ocean in front of you just – goes up higher and higher.. Fascinating experience, makes you feel really really.. small. It’s at this point that you start believing in God. If in the path of the direct storm surge, it will be a memorable experience.. Be a good swimmer with the ability to tread water for hours – don’t panic – all you have to do is keep your head above water and ride the waves.. it’ll be alright.. just believe in God and yourself..

I cooked all the hamburger I had and iced it down. Do not keep stuff that will give you food poisoning. We lost water on the sixth day, I poured about a couple of inches in a pot and bathed….you wouldn’t believe how much better that can make you feel. It can get pretty rough, I also keep myself busy sweeping all day and attempting to keep some sort of normal household chore routine

    Maybe the eye will hover off the coast just south of Chesapeake Bay – the most powerful punch of the storm – the north/northeast side – that has been pushing water for days and days across the Atlantic, will surge into Chesapeake Bay; The waters will inevitably push inland and rise and rise and rise.. Rain will incessantly fall from above, maybe for days and days.. D.C. and its corrupt corridor will flood and flood.. and flood..

    You would think that some enterprising folks would start pushing shutters with hinges on them and can cover the entire window. It seems a tad ironic to see broken windows after a predicted weather event when the plastic fake shutter is hung next to that broken window, unable to move. There are hurricane shutters that are hinged on top and can be lowered and latched to keep flying debris from breaking the glass and when raised they act as awnings to keep sunlight from heating the glass. Some old ideas are great ideas!

    Today, I’m going to be blunt,, Wilmington, started to be a Chit-Show…

    This report comes from a friend in Carolina Beach boat ramp…

    “”””Ok locals, I am hoping that most of us have common sense on here. My husband and I were taking our boat out of the water today, due to the impending storm, and I watch people arguing and fist-fighting at the boat ramp. Parking lot full of boaters, boaters 10 deep waiting in line to either put in or take out and tempers were high and fuming. A new boater backed down and then proceeded to wait on the boat to arrive. The new boater initiated the argument that continued for 30 good mins with several boaters. He was expecting everyone to move so his boat could come in. In the meantime, I counted 6 other boats docked and waiting for trailers to arrive so they could depart. Then my husband had pulled up and was about to back in when someone cut him off and zipped in. His boat was still coming in. I swear I just shook my head and said dear lord please get us out of the boat ramp safely without dying, because I know the storm you are sending will wash these fools away. Lesson, be kind and courteous and help out your fellow boater. Sheesh. CB police or whom ever the Public boat dock officials are need to monitor it over the next few days. People are nuts.””

    It’s getting nuts at the local boat ramps, Which there are only TWO or 3 that can handle 20′ foot plus boats….

    I watched a “parade of boats” leaving going inland today… As I reside on Carolina Beach Road & Shipyard blvd. Watching, While waiting inline getting Gas..

    I been through ALOT of hurricanes here in Wilmington & Surrounding areas.. over my lifetime
    This one Really SCARES Me… (As forecasted)

    This will be Fran & HUGO & Floyd wrapped in a nice neat bow..
    When this Old fart, hurricane experienced says,,, “I’m scared”.. Well take it at that..
    Once in a 1000 year storm..
    Or Hazel…

    I want too add We had MONTHS of Rains up until mid-August, We are Still “ground saturated.
    We already had a “year” of rain by August…

    I’ll try too stay on-line long as possible.. giving reports..
    I’m 12 miles from Carolina Beach & next to the State Ports.. (with-in a mile)
    MeanWhile, enjoy the views until power is gone at My “home Pier” on the beach..

At least they have a plan for more than Doritos’ / Limes / and smoky links…..
    This one has the earmarks of being a true blow!…as well as WET EVENT… Anyone along the coastal area of NC (by the looks of it now) needs to figure out their ELEVATION above SEA LEVEL…and/or, elevation above any local body of water – Highly important if that “local water” happens to have a “sea outlet/inlet/tide”….bad ju-ju…. CAT 4 storm upon landfall “could” end up pushing 20+ FEET of storm surge ahead of the RIGHT-FRONT quadrant of the storm, which can “reach/affect” as much a 100+ miles of shoreline!…(to some variable degree by distance from eyewall)… This could be the “interesting to watch” event before the RAINFALL inland drains the “other way out” to flush all the snakes back from where they were pushed in the first round… AFTER HIGH WATER….DON’T GO FOR LONG WALKS IN ANY TREES….bad ju-ju…. Lay in some 410 ga bird shot, eh?…

    Keep watching the twists and turns…stock the shelves (non-refrigerated) … store the gas and tools.. Hang your hat on the “forecast landfall” from the 36hr to the 24hr “BEFORE” time window – this should be within +/-20-40 miles…. IF you can do it, consider moving yourself 300+ miles inland IF you live within “50 mi south and/or 100 mi north” of this landfall position, AND you are within those 20 feet of elevation above sea level. (or, anywhere near that!)… God Bless & Check-6

    My fear??? That this “high pressure” circulation will slack-off sooner, than later, and allow this northward drift to aim the eye “just north of Cape Hatterras/barrier islands” allowing the actual land-fall point to then become the head end of the Bay itself… Could pick up all that shallow water in there and shove it up the river directly into DC et al…. talk about a “flush season”….wow…

    Tomorrow my calls go into the insurance company for head’s up on the homeowner’s/auto policies. I would think that people who own RENTAL properties in the warned areas should call their insurance companies too.
    Here’s a hack people can try, I’ve used this for years for when the power goes out and you have to use 2 cups of stored water to wash yourself: Mix 1 Tablespoon of hand sanitizer per 2 cups of water in a plastic “body wash” bottle. shake the mixture up before you use it. Of course don’t use this mixture around the mouth, eyes, and “private areas”, use plain water to wash these areas.

      Even Sam’s Cub in Goldsboro ran out of water. Milk, bread, etc gone from the shelves. And that was after a multi truck delivery. Not a generator left in the town. Cars lined up for gas all over. Guess people learned from Matthew – better to plan ahead and not need it than to be without it and everything go bad.

      We keep kiddie pools and buckets to capture water in the storm to use for washing. Keep one for the drinks to set in to stay cold. Even keep some to use to flush toilet when needed.

    Do not forget your animals. They can not be left out in the storm. Bring them in if possible. Make sure to have plenty of food and water for them as in many areas the impassable roads will make it impossible to go get any for days after the storm. Plan ahead for an evacuation that includes them, have carriers available for them to ride in and a place to go to that can accommodate them. It is so sad to see the news with dead animals floating in the flood water or starving on rooftops or in trees because people are too mean to take care of their animals.

    Put important documents, jewelry and such in plastic baggies and place them in either the washing machine if you have a front load or the dishwasher. They are water tight and if you have to evacuate and can not take them with you not too many people that loot would think to look there especially if you toss some laundry in on top of it or load dishes in the front…

    Make certain everything in your yard is either tied down packed up. Get tarps and rope or tie down straps and nails in advance in case of roof leaks or you need to cover something that you can’t move. Use clean kiddie pools or 5 gallon buckets to catch rain water to wash dishes with, flush the toilet, keep your drinks cold with, or even to wash up with. For the pools place a large rock or paver in it to keep it from blowing away before it gets full.

    If you have any spaces in your freezer put in bottles or bags of water so that it freezes now. It will help keep it cold if the power goes out and as it melts will provide water for drinking. Have plenty of grill materials ready as well as disposable plates, cups, etc. Have actual pans you can cook on the grill with. A well seasoned Cast Iron Skillet is a must as they do not take much to keep clean.

    Have plenty of toilet paper available. Flashlights with batteries. I like to keep a lot of scented candles available. They light up the house and keep it smelling good even while closed up in the storm. If you have a landline phone you will need an old style jack plug in phone. Keep a car charger as well to charge cell phones. Gas up all vehicles and fill a gas can. If power is out the pumps will not operate.

    Stay safe everyone.
