Up to Category 4 this afternoon. Current predicted track is straight
up I-40 from Wilmington. AFAIK, the only Cat 4 storm to hit NC was
Hazel in 1954.
John - hope you are not hit as hard as they are predicting -- we are
supposed to suffer a bit from Florence as well - but it isn't clear...
Florence is more or less on the same predicted track as Fran back in
1996 (and Hazel in 1954 although there was no I-40 back then).
Hugo was Cat 4 when it made landfall at Charleston, SC. I've seen some
reports Florence may reach Cat 5 before it hits. We've never had a Cat
5 here AFAIK. Hurricane Floyd was Cat 2 when it hit (September 16),
but it stalled and dropped 19 inches of rain on top of the 15 inches
of rain from Dennis (September 4)
I have my generator gassed up, so I should be able to keep my
refrigerator going. I've got 5 gallons of water and my chain-saw is
gassed up. I've got my camp stove with 3 bottles of gas so I think
I'll be able to feed myself.
If the power goes out I won't have internet, so if you don't hear from
me for a while you'll know why.
It ain't lookin' good. I hope I don't lose my roof again.
one question - only 5 gallons of water???
