I believe in solving problems, not sharing them.


Anyone live in the area?

Hurricane Florence is closing in on the Southeast as officials warned more than 1 million people in its projected path to leave now or face disaster. Florence is a category four hurricane with sustained winds of 130 mph, and computer models on Wednesday morning show it will make landfall around Wilmington, North Carolina on Friday as a major hurricane, said National Hurricane Center (NHC).

Florence is expected to be one of the strongest hurricanes on the eastern seaboard in decades and could unleash dangerous storm surges, flooding and hurricane-force winds in the Carolinas and Mid-Atlantic states.

According to reports, Florence’s track to the U.S. East Coast shifted slightly to the south overnight and the storm is now threatening to batter a wide swath of coastline as it makes landfall near Myrtle Beach.

“With the new track, you’re just exposing more shoreline to worse conditions,” said Evan Duffey, an AccuWeather meteorologist. "If Florence rides southward, as now forecast, it means its strongest side will rake the shore, threatening property from South Carolina to Virginia."

Not a "wind event" but a "water event" thanks to its slow-moving nature and how it followed the coastline, much like Hurricane Harvey. Up until yesterday, some rivers were still rising. I believe they've all crested by now.
