Hurricane Florence

Recommended Posts

Good grief is Flo even moving anymore?  She is still drinking off the atlantic like a 7-11 big gulp.  The radar is loaded for another 6-8 hours.  If feel for those folks down east, but now I'm starting to worry about the folks around CLT and across the southern piedmont.  The flooding is going to get scary bad real quick tomorrow with another 6-12" to go.  There is just no way to prepare for this type of destruction across an entire state.



Unreal returns. Looks like it’s finally pushing up our way as well...

Hey guys sorry for the subforum intrusion...just trying to find out any info on the Leland area (and that entire area just west of Wilmington really). Anyone know how its held up?

They are currently under a tornado warning. Not seeing or hearing much about that locality specifically, but the whole of the area around Wilmington is in dire straits generally. Local reports and storm alerts: https://nwschat.weather.gov/lsr/#AKQ,CAE,CHS,FFC,GSP,ILM,JAX,LWX,HUN,BMX,EYW,MHX,RAH,RLX,RNK,TAE,TBW,MRX,MLB,MFL/201809130400/201809160433/0110

...A TROPICAL RAIN SHOWER SHOWING SIGNS OF WEAK ROTATION WILL AFFECT 
SOUTHERN WAYNE COUNTY UNTIL 915 AM EDT...

I have been communicating with my brother in Wilmington, and it is BAD in that area.  He has never seen flooding this bad in that area, and he has been through many hurricanes down there.

Anderson cooper has now been caught in that trap as well. Pics of him "standing" in waste high water but his crew on the road while he is down in a ditch. Disgraceful when so many people are dealing with the real life threatening issues they face to have these idiots sitting on the outskirts of the disaster taking it.

No radar echos between here and the SE Coast!!! Really going to have a hard time getting those multiple inches here today.

That's a good thing correct? Tired of the rain and we aren't even flooding like those south of us.

I think Solak is scarred because his location has apparently replaced wherever Shetley lives as the desert spot of the east.

Seriously though, some folks in my hometown of Hope Mills are at risk of being flooded out for the second time in three years.

Born and raised (Aaron Lakes West) in that area. Didn't the town drain HM Lake last week in prep? I'm catching reports it's back up toward full/minor because of the Cape Fear River.

Hey all checking in from jville. Im going into my 5th day now with no power lol. Finally am getting some sort of signal today where I can get a internet page to load. It has been crazy here in town. Any gas stations open you'll be waiting for one of two hours, same with the select fast food that has opened. The flooding that occured here was crazy. Water had over taken bridges on highway 17 and people were driving over it smh. I have videos i took when the winds got crazy and when i have a better signal I will upload. Most damage to our neighborhood is down trees and privacy fences, we were fortunate not to flood like other parts of jacksonville.

Has anyone seen any charts of highest winds gusts from the storm? I heard of a 105 mph gust at Fort Macon and Wrightsville Beach but nothing else. 

In addition to those two 105's, I recall a 106 too I think at Cape Lookout. I'd like to see the officials too though to be sure.

Florence giving us in DC some serious t&l and downpours. What I had for 20 minutes you had for 24+ hours. Unimaginable.

24 hours x 2 in some places.  Here in the triad we had between 6-8" over roughly a 36 hour run.  The Dan River up in Danville VA was near its all time high I think.  There were many places, almost the entire sandhills region SE of Raleigh down to the coast, that received steady rainfall for 48 hours or more.  There are rivers cresting this morning over 30' above flood stage next to towns with zero elevation.  New Bern, Kinston, Jacksonville.  And even littler towns like Pollocksville NC which may cease to exist after this.  

An unprecendented catastrophy.  Flo made her mark in history.

Sadly the death toll is up to 32 from Florence. and as feared the Cape Fear is setting new records for all time highs at many gauges. Heres a bfore and after pic I saw. This river flooding is going to be historic as many of us guessed it would be. Florence will be one of the top 10 costliest Hurricane disasters in our countrys history.

Not saying the pic above isnt bad, it certainly has an impact.  But in reality the houses and infrastructure still stand.  The beach and dunes were basically moved 100 feet inland and covered the road.  This happens with many storms and can easily be fixed.  Its the water damage and flooding pics that resonate with me the most.  There is simply no recovery.  Roads must be reconstructed, not just repaved.  Sewer and water lines, gas lines, electrical wires, homes, cars, livestock, literally everything.

Over 4300 houses and business were damaged and destroyed in New bern due to surge and wind. That is about as astonishing a number as one could conceive for a small town like new bern.

4.7” here in 4 hours overnight with that feeder band. Some sections of BW Pkwy had 6. 

Luckily my yard drains downhill and away. Another downpour as I post 

dying tropical feeder bands in the overnight with rolling thunder and intense rain is spooky
