Hurricane Flo
« on: September 10, 2018, 10:06:07 PM »
Cat4 right now, aiming toward Cape Fear, concerns of a stall out after landfall and flooding.  Suspect stores are getting cleaned out of food, water etc .

Pan, JF & Glock I am am sure are watching & prepared.  Hopefully doesn't stall out.   ::praying::

Stalling:  nay nay, not good.  JF's pacing (by his telling), Gunsmith and I are tucking stuff up and away and ....... I dunno about Glock, but I hope he is and will be well.

Seems to be tracking pretty direct, but these things can and will shift around and gain or lose strength.  Right now they are basing storm surge warnings off of Hugo and other previous storms, 15-20 feet, wind shear, flooding heavy from Wilmington to Kitty Hawk and inland to the Piedmont.  And not one to miss a good panic attack the media is having kittens over Nuke Plants, toxic sludge, manure lagoons....

Still, would not want to be on coast or coastal plain, some high ground would be nice

You mean the '55 Chevy?  Thanks, but she's tucked away nice and safe in our garage.

Glock comes around only once in a blue moon now.

IIRC he is in Raleigh area...yes?  May be inland from worst of it but still a flooding risk.

Plus...these can spawn twisters, lightning...etc....

Hunker down time Thursday into Friday!

Last I understood, Glock was in the western part of the state.

I hear the too-laters bitching about no gas, water, juice, food...

Preparation is equal parts intelligence, experience and timing...some people lack all three!

Current news is good for some, bad for others, however, it appears Florence is veering south now,
though currently still looking at the Cariolina's for a hit, though quite a bit further south now.  Of
course this can change again.

Well, looks to be a SC super-soaker as it's weakens, didn't recover it's last ERC event and after soaking SC and surrounding areas most models have it trailing out up Appalachians.

I saw a quote from a resident who lived a few blocks from the beach saying "We can't afford to leave". How much does a bus ticket cost these days? Seriously!
