How long until the storm hits?

Seems crazy to me that people wouldn't evacuate. Worst case scenario is you spend some money on petrol and it's a bit inconvenient not being at home for a few days. Worst case scenario if you stay is you lose everything.

It's supposed to hit within 24hrs.

Storms are kind of unpredictable too. If forecasts say you're going to be at the rim of the worst bit, you might as well consider yourself in dead center. That's assuming you're the cautious type, of course.

^ Well, if you're guaranteed safe, a hurricane can be quite exciting, though the power-out, as you mentioned, is pretty tedious. Good luck!

My impression is that worst-case predictions for the Wilmington area include 20-foot waves/storm surge followed by one foot of rain with subsequent river flooding, which will prob be a lot higher than one foot. I would advise against hanging around for that, Tristan. Also, the mayor of Somewhere-Along-The-Coast said that emergency services will be suspended when winds reach 50 m.p.h., which is like a full day before the storm really hits.

I’m cool with big storms but once it gets past a certain point it’s too much. For me at least. Anywhere near the eye in a cat two or higher - **** that

This **** that might just sit at 3-4 down to a 2 for 24 hours straight - and then maybe still keep flooding - no ****ing way

I’m still thinking oh watch this sneaky ****er change course and hit Florida

Either way they’re going to continue just like the wildfires out west

Things are too far gone. Katrina Sandy and now this big bitch - it’s the new normal

I’m mos definitely cool with rich ass shouldn’t be there anyway beach front property getting crushed and hopefully never rebuilt

I just wish I owned a canoe. Then I'd be counting the hours to fun and excitement.

When Floyd hit I took the boat around my flooded town.. Here's where I grew up and lived during Irene:



Place floods every time theres a heavy rain. That video is being recorded from a railroad overpass where you could reach down and touch the water at its peak.

What's going to be extra bad about Florence is that the ground in many of those areas is already saturated due to them getting lots of heavy rains these past couple of weeks. Secondly, most experts predict that once Florence comes on shore it's gonna stall and keep hammering the crap out of the coastline.

Folks are insane if they are planning on riding this out in their homes. I guess they don't realize that there's hurricanes, and then there's M-Fing HURRICANES!!

I’m predicting the remains of some of Peewee Gaskins victims get washed out and found.
