Category 2 inland near Fayetteville (or anywhere) is a scary thought.

Agreed. Fayetteville is pretty far inland. For it to get hit with a Cat II (which is a prospect), then thing on the coast would be pretty bad.

Joe Bastardi is the best weather forecaster on the planet right now (has been for years).

Hi Sam.

Agreed. He is one smart cookie. He doesn't just bloviate - he knows the why, when, and where of what he is saying.

My good friend lives in Wilson. The rising rivers did severe flooding damage over a very wide are. As I recall, it took forever for the waters to recede

He has a place down on the sound that was severely damaged and then later pretty much destroyed.

A little advice from a Katrina evacuee Carolina. The day you plan to evacuate, like everyone else waiting to see it it turns, and it won’t, leave the day before.

Agreed wardamneagle. I evacuated from Ivan. I left a day earlier than most (that Monday), and got out before the traffic. I was not a seasoned hurricane person, but 3 days before, I gassed up, got water, money out of the ATM, supplies, etc.

As I was making my way out, that was when 90% of the rest of the people were stuck in gas lines and stuck in traffic.

If people wait too long, then your committed.

Flooding from Hurricane Floyd caused hundreds of coffins to pop out of the ground. Fresh water flooding also caused angry snakes and other critters to move to higher ground. Fire ant bites aplenty.

Gloucester County, Virginia here, and daughter lives in Virginia Beach. We’re very warily watching Florence.

Dang Cooter, so is my brother. He said he’s sticking it out.

Glad you are following the storm updates. If the storm makes landfall south of you, that puts your area on the dirty side of the storm. Potential for a lot of water piling up in rivers and bay as the storm approaches.

Yep; we’re on relatively high ground relative to the York River, but my daughter’s neighborhood is susceptible to flooding; she and the granddaughters will likely come up our way.

If the storm heads south, we may be in a better spot because it is a compact storm. But they are meeting tomorrow to decide whether to kick us off.

“Large storm surge into the bay and Hampton roads area..which use to be a swamp..military bases in danger..plus any runoff from rain will not be able to drain out of the bay either for days”

I was assigned at Langley AFB in Hampton when Hurricane Isabel hit in 2003.. the storm surge was so pronounced, dolphins were seen swimming in the flooding three blocks in from the shore.

During Fran, my niece foolishly stayed on Topsail Island until it was too late to evacuate. The house she was in was picked up by the storm surge and sucked out towards the ocean. She is lucky to be alive...

My 101 year old mother is just west of Wilmington (New Hanover Co.) I hate hurricane season as I’m 3000 miles away.

Yeah, and I’m more than a bit concerned about that part of the NC Coast with Florence this time ‘round, too.

Thanks for the thread! I get more precise info from here than anywhere else. We are an hour from the NC/VA border I-95 [Rocky Mt/Wilson area]. I remember the flooding from Floyd like it was yesterday. Just awful. We didn’t flood, but it was all around us. Couldn’t get out from our house, no matter what direction we went for about a week. Hope this isn’t gonna be as bad? Prayers up for all in the path!
