down south feels like heaven! all4 i'm assuming you are staying just trying to figure out if we should ride this thing like a bucking bronco or scuttle back inland
I stay for a cat 1. Personally, I feel we will see minimal damage and flooding from this one due to all the variables. Its moving through mighty quickly and we wont have multiple high tides during the NW backlash from the sound. That being said though the road is so vulnerable in certain spots that it doesnt take much for problems to arise. Park the car on high ground tonight and by morning we will see whats happened. If your not sure where high ground is Im sure if you ask someone where your staying they will help you out.
I'm trying to get down there Friday for the wind switch/die off. Hopefully the bridges aren't out or the roads washed out. Keep us posted blues. Thanks
That might be difficult considering that with the mandatory evacuation order they stopped allowing access to Hatteras Island as of 5 am today: http://darecountyem.com/mandatory-ev...tteras-island/ No telling when re-entry will be allowed. Depends on the status of Hwy 12 and the crumbling Bonner Bridge. After that it's prioritized: residents, non-resident owners, then everybody else. Just checked a few cams and all vehicles are heading north, none south, but otherwise looks like another day in paradise. Expected landfall Hatteras Village, back out to sea at Rodanthe. Be safe...
