Hurricane Arthur
NHC/NOAA ^ | 2 July 2014 | NHC/NOAA

Posted on 07/03/2014 4:02:22 AM PDT by NautiNurse

Arthur becomes the first hurricane of the 2014 Atlantic season. Independence Day travelers and revelers up and down the U.S. Atlantic coast are eying the path of the storm. Forecast models are in good agreement that Hurricane Arthur will dampen July 4th festivities along the N.C. Outer Banks. Mandatory evacuation of the Outer Banks has begun. Warm waters from the Gulf Stream are adding fuel to the storm development.

Hello! Official Thread once again. It’s still a non singing zone. Right?

I was recently reading about beach erosion along the Outer Banks. Of course, that is the nature of the barrier islands.

The article was relating to “climate change” and how the rising seas would flood beach front.

NC coastal dwellers are all too familiar with ‘canes. It’s the adventure tourists that generate concern.

The storm would have to strengthen considerably to be much of a concern other than roads flooding, and that happens with a strong thunderstorm.

The weak point on the OBX currently is on the north end of Rodanthe at Mirlo Beach. I’ve always loved the look of that place, the big dunes right by Highway 12, the sound views, the really distinctive large beach houses built in that Hatteras style, juniper shingles, towers and such. Many of them are modeled to an extent after the nearby Chicamacomico Lifesaving Station.

Many of them have fallen into the Atlantic over the past several years, too. What a pity.

We were in the OBX in late April and the road just north of Rodanthe flooded and was closed just before we arrived and also for a time while we were there after a heavy thunderstorm.

They’re always moving sand away from the road in that area to keep the road open when heavy rain comes. Must be very expensive, but tourism is the lifeblood there and if Hwy. 12 is closed, the money dries up.

Just think of the millions of $$$ lost this coming weekend with everything shuttered. The timing couldn’t be worse.

What does “mandatory evacuation” look like on the OBX? There’s just that one bridge, right?

I wouldn’t worry the “officials” are really good at closing down the beaches and everything they can up there. It’s a sad story.

What was the storm that cut a new inlet a few years ago, Irene? I had a long weekend booked with friends for Halloween weekend on Ocracoke Island that year, missed the last direct ferry from the mainland at Swan Quarter and had to drive down from Manteo to catch the ferry at Hatteras. The storm had just passed and it was a pretty wild ride, I actually went into the ferry’s passenger lounge instead of staying in my car, lol. To get there we drove on sand in many areas, wind whipped, snaking across in the headlights. There was a temporary steel plate bridge just north of Rodanthe over that new inlet. It took quite a toll on campers and such, there were destroyed ones lining Highway 12 off and on all the way down. Ocracoke was unscathed. Had a nice time, a little more chilly than we had planned but the house had a fireplace with gas logs and a fire pit outside, so we adjusted.

Not only was Arthur caused by Global Warming - he is gay and multi-racial too.

And we all know how people discriminate against hurricanes and tropical storms because they form in seas that are home to the "People Of Color"!

We camped in Waves in our ultralight travel trailer in late April. The week after we came home, there was a bad storm with hail and we read that it wrecked a lot of RV roofs. So RVing down there really is a crap shoot, I guess.

"We camped in Waves in our ultralight travel trailer in late April. The week after we came home, there was a bad storm with hail and we read that it wrecked a lot of RV roofs. So RVing down there really is a crap shoot, I guess."

Years ago my family camped at Buxton in a 18 foot Twilight trailer. The park rangers drove through with an announcement that a storm was coming and we would experience hurricane force winds and were to stay inside.

The storm barely reached wind speeds that would qualify it has a level 1 hurricane and as a result to this day when Hurricanes are reported on the East cost I still do not feel safe...

here in Southern Ohio...

The Weather Channel is in drama mode, but hurricane tracking forecasts do allow preparation and evacuation plans well in advance. Not so true for earthquakes, volcanoes, sink holes, landslides, forest fires, isolated/erratic storms with heavy rains/flooding and tornadoes.

Living on the Georgia coast I gave birth to my daughter during the 1964 Dora hurricane. Too young to panic;) We did not name her Dora!!!!!

Prayers up.

A lot of the attraction is feeling like you’re at the end of the earth, the wind, the roar of the waves, the dunes always moving. Pretty stiff breeze on a normal day.

Here’s a link to a surf cam at Cape Hatteras. Beautiful day, sun’s out, looks like the normal Hatteras surf to me.

http://www.surfchex.com/hatteras-web-cam.php

There cams at other beaches at the same link. Looks like rain has gotten as far north as Wrightsville Beach, NC. Folly Beach near Charleston, SC normally has very moderate surf, but it looks to be picking up.

“A lot of the attraction is feeling like you’re at the end of the earth, “

That’s the allure of the Core Banks for me. It’s Hatteras without a bridge or development.

The Army cam(s) images are updated every hour or so.

The images might not load quickly (or at all) as the hurricane approaches,
since everybody wants to see what the storm looks like from the 141 foot tower..

As bad as the storms are that come through the Federal govt./park service causes much more grief, aggravation and loss of income to locals. They close the beach for bird nesting all the time. Don't allow this don't allow that and between the epa and the bird watchers its a nightmare all the time.
NC has no political representation for the locals on the outer banks,its sad.

Yeeeeeeehawwwwwww! Hurricane!!!!

Weather people finally have something they can dolt on for the next 4-5 days — provided the thing doesn't weaken.

Last season didn't give them much to be excited about. They are hoping for a better new season.

Stay safe.

In 1959 our family survived “Gracie” while my Father was at Shaw Field. It almost destroyed the mobile home in which we were living. We had to flee the home in the worst of the winds and go to Shaw for shelter. In October we transferred to Japan to Yokota AFB and were living in the “paddies” when a Super typhoon hit the area, destroying our house and again we had to flee in the midst of the storm to the base for cover. I have empathy for those that are going to endure the hurricanes each season. I was only seven years old when I went through those two and have endured many others but those two's memory is entrenched.

The name of the SC hurricane was Gracie but I had remembered it as Gloria.

Florida is in the clear now - my wife is now down there on the Space Coast and said their effects were limited to a couple of squall lines (like that never happens during a Florida Summer anyway) and a bit more breeze.

There are some advisories about rip currents, but even that shouldn't be a big deal - perhaps so up along the Georgia coastline now.

Models now in tight agreement: landfall tonight somewhere along the corridor from Cape Lookout to Cape Hatteras. That angle of arrival - almost matching the contour of those barrier islands - is gonna overwash that entire stretch of beach as water is pushed in... erosion is going to be the biggest problem there.

Last 1-2 hours of satellite pics looked to show a weakening eye as dry air was circulating in... hope that continues, though it does have all day to recover from that. Still wouldn’t be surprised if it was a high-Cat 1 by landfall.
