The eye is in the process of passing over/near Buoy #41037, offshore of Wrightsville Beach in the Wilmington area. [see radar in Post #52]

https://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/station_pa...?station=41037

The following chart should record the passage, with a recent range of 50-83 knot winds, for a max of ~90 MPH. Air pressure may be bottoming out here IMO.




Winds/gusts at the Wilmington airport, linked in Post #51, are running in the range of 44-71 MPH.

Recent charts starting in Post #49 show similar ranges for various buoys.

Stay safe,

Peter

The Wilmington airport had a recent wind gust of 87 MPH.

Why I don't trust the weather reports. I heard one forecaster predicting 80' waves.
Flo came ashore as a cat1.
Now the rain will be the main issue. Hurricane insurance doesn't cover rising water.

As many have already said, the rain just keeps coming and coming. The moving radar images are hard to watch, because you have to know that there is some real suffering going on in the many rivers and creeks in the hills. Hesitant to watch the news today.

Prayers for everyone under Florence's deluge.

Peter

PS -- Glad that the coast did not receive the stronger hurricane which had been forecast to hit. Plenty of time left for good vacations on The Outer Banks at any campgrounds which will be open. TBD for sure.

The Outer Banks Voice appears to be a good news source for that coastal region IMO:

https://outerbanksvoice.com/
Florence Blog: https://outerbanksvoice.com/2018/09/...ed-and-rained/

Looks like the damage was fairly limited compared to the forecasts a week ago. We camped there for a week back in the 90's, at a state campground right on the ocean.

Magical to wake up, walk over the dunes, and go for a swim in the Atlantic, as the sun rose!

More doomsday reporting.
Isn't that CNN's Anderson Cooper in waist deep floodwaters?
He's such a trooper!
Wait, his cameraman and sound guy took the road!

Continuing prayers for the folks in North Carolina especially, where profound flooding is still going on as we speak. The next few days are going to be very tough to watch.



Just marvel at the rain bands continuing to come ashore!

Stay safe,

PS -- Before all the previous charts go out-of-date, it is instructive to read this entire thread IMO, to appreciate the NOAA etc. resources that let us watch the action in real time, notably the ocean National Data Buoy system. The winds at many locations are still crankin' !!!

Hurricane Florence

Iím glad the storm hasnít been as bad as feared, and I enjoy laughing at reporters who get caught trying to sensationalize the storm, but letís not lose track of the fact that for at least a good number of folks, this hurricane has been a devastating experience.

Our Daughter, hubby and g-kids sheltered it out at our place cause their home near Latta SC is really near the NC border and their area is pretty flat and the rising water has them blocked from even getting in to check things.

Anxious days ahead for all.

We got over 10" rain from storm so far.

Hope your family is OK.

Floí will just not go!

Amazing rainfall totals, with the worst news yet to come, I fear, from the upland streams and rural communities.

Prayers . . .

The massive flooding this storm has caused will disrupt lives and displace people for a long time.

If you have some spare cash, the American Red Cross is always a good way to provide help.

It could be us and ours...
