(1) #MAGA rally in Charlotte, NC 10/26/18: Live updates thread.
5.35pm: They're about to start the prayer, the pledge and the anthem. Warm-up speeches are underway. Watching this live feed:
(2) #HurricaneFlorence has been mentioned in the opening speeches. We must keep North Carolinians & everyone affected by this major disaster in our thoughts & prayers. My #thoughts about it include the need to #VoteGOP for superior prepping, response & recovery to disasters.
(3) 7.25pm: Charlotte, NC rally crowd cheer and applaud as the President talks about the arrest of the IED mailer, supporting the Police, and building unity in the country.
While this thread is not in-depth, it will be most useful info in one place that I think you will find. It’s also a bit long. Sorry not sorry 😬
Let’s start out by stating the obvious, unless you are saving another human, nothing is worth risking personal sickness or your life for. You must protect yourself first in disaster areas. If it takes another day to get the right gear, wait that day.
Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill: #HurricaneFlorence organizers with A JUST FLORENCE RECOVERY/ OPERATION AIRDROP are coordinating multiple flights daily bringing hurricane relief supplies from RDU into severely impacted areas like #Lumberton and #WilmingtonNC
They are in touch with folks in those communities, who have stated there is a desperate, urgent need for infant formula, especially in #Lumberton. Clean water is accessible, and liquid is heavy, so powdered formula is preferable.
If you can drop some off Tues 9/18 or Wed 9/19 that would help tremendously. Drop off is at TAC AIR BUILDING, 1725 E International Dr, Morrisville, NC 27560.
All coastal areas impacted by waves/winds will bear the fruit of Israel spoken of by Paul:
Consider it all joy when you encounter various trials for “All flesh is like grass & all its glory like the flower of grass “Awake, sleeper, arise from the dead, Christ will shine on you.”
There are 9 potentially deadly storms that seem to be telling a story if we break down their meanings behind the names of each storm.
9 also represents the fruits of God's Holy Spirit, which are Faithfulness, Gentleness, Goodness, Joy, Kindness, Long suffering, Love, Peace and Self-control (Galatians 5:22 - 23). crosswalk.com/faith/spiritua…
"As we continue to monitor Hurricane Florence, the President will receive an emergency preparedness update this morning," says @LWalters45 in statement.
Update: “This morning the President spoke with Senator Thom Tillis of North Carolina and Mayor Bill Saffo of Wilmington, NC. The President offered his support and reiterated the federal government’s willingness to help with whatever is needed," says @PressSec in statement.
#HurricaneFlorence taken 5 hours ago ... almost a perfect storm. Should be similar to #Hugo so just go check out the damage photos.
The eye of #HurricaneFlorence taken about 2 hours ago ... storm strengthening and waves 83 feet high! People staying in those beach houses will have no idea what to do as their home comes completely apart around them. We'll see bare sand when it's all over.
Center of #Hurricane Florence will move over the SW
Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda and the Bahamas today and approach
the coast of the Carolinas on Thursday and Friday and move slowly near the
coastline through Saturday, according to @NHC_Atlantic.
To those in the path of the Hurricanes & storm surges/ flooding: if you are not evacuating please google the coordinates of your house or wherever you are staying.
That way when you post your SOS on a social media platform, that way when your house & street signs are submerged
Rescuers can still find you. You see this is one of those historical large storms & that means flooding that covers buildings & streets & signs making even aerial views difficult to decipher b/c landmarks & signs are submerged. Coordinates can be found with GPS even in deep water
These are websites that convert addresses to GPS coordinates screen shot the results. Do the same with addresses you plan to go to if your shelter fails. That way we know where to begin to look for you.
