Hurricane Hunters sampling #Ian this evening have found the storm to be strengthening, arguably more than what was expected from this morning's forecasts, w/ SFMR of up to ~ 75 kts (85 mph) in #Ian's NW quadrant.

For the Carolinas, I'm more concerned about wx impacts than I was this morning, esp for the Pee Dee region of SC into east-central NC. The combo of heavy rain leading to saturated ground + wind gusts of 50-60+ mph will favor 🌳 falling onto power lines/power outages

Here's the latest NWS NDFD max wind gust & WPC precip fcsts. Given #Ian's more impressive than expected strengthening today, there's certainly a small chance hurricane-force wind gusts (74+ mph) could sneak as far north as the southern coastal plain of NC.

NC Governor's COVID briefing getting underway.
Watch here:

I'll be live-tweeting.
889k cases
1002 hospitalized

Numbers have remained relatively low & stable.
Trends look good, but keeping watchful & concerned eye on COVID variants in our state - they could spread more easily & make us sicker.

Do the 3Ws.

3.4 m doses administered so far
Increased % of Black & Hispanic recipients.

CDC says we're in top 10 of states for equitable distribution. That's fair.

Today we expand eligibility to people with medical conditions that put them at high risk.

Good morning, neighbors

Low pressure near Wilmington, NC has an even higher chance of tropical development with this morning's update.

The system is producing heavy rain but the question remains as to whether heavy rain stays out to sea or some of our neighborhoods get clipped with it

No flash flood watch as of this morning but that could change as invest #98L starts moving north

#13newsnow #13weather Image
The numbers have varied over the past 12-18 hours but it looks like this still has potential to be a decent rainmaker - but only for some areas (coastal zones, Eastern Shore).

Western neighborhoods may see <0.10" from invest #98L

(1) #Florence #PhotoThread starting 9/14/18.

I have several related threads on the go at the moment. To find them, enter "(1) from:godlessnz" in the Twitter search bar then select the "latest" tab.

My key message: Heed safety warnings to protect yourself & loved ones.
(2) To save time I'm presenting photos without locations and names. Most of the initial batch are from the area first hit in NC: Wilmington, New Bern, James City and surrounds.

Urban SAR team uses poles to check for debris & holes as they walk through floodwater.
(3) Rescuers with part of the huge tree that fell on a home, killing 2 & critically injuring a 3rd occupant.

Tree broken off the stump, showing winds were strong enough that sodden soil wasn't always a factor. Being Cat 1 =/= low risk.

Literally a set of steps floating by.
