this storm is 350 miles wide! That is a biggun.

The stories of Andrew in 1992, of people in their bathrooms, with every mattress they own, stacked on top of them, for 16 Hours, while their kitchen cabinets were blown out the window, scares the heck out of me.

They have had counter flow traffic on I-26 for about 24 hours now.
I sure hope everyone runs away.
I assume that you will be working Florence? The company I run for handles my preferred carrier in SC and VA, but will probably help with overflow if NC is impacted as much as expected.

No, at least not the first wave, I am past working in areas with No Power, and No Elevators and Chaos. If I go, I will be in the second wave.

Still working Irma, I am in Naples now doing so.

Frying Pan Ocean Cam powered by

location: 35 miles offshore from Cape Fear, North Carolina
best viewing hours: 6:15am - 8:00pm
time zone: Eastern Standard Time
Above water overlooking the Mid-Atlantic Ocean, this camera gives us a bird’s eye view of the ocean surrounding Frying Pan Tower. When weather moves in, you’ll see a swift change in the waves and want to watch the storm roll through. On other days, the sunrise, sunset, and expansive clouds on the horizon will be dramatic highlights to your day.
Groups travel to Frying Pan regularly for dive trips, volunteer restoration work, and vacation. Travel to the tower happens by boat or by helicopter, with the helicopters landing on the observation deck in view. How do people get to the observation deck from a boat? They are raised on an automated pulley system with a seat for the guest.
