We used to be next to the ocean until global warming dried up the ocean to where it is now. Ocean front property in Arizona, btw lol.

I think you may need a lesson on plate tectonics

New Bern, NC is getting hammered by storm surge. Also some double digit rainfall amounts are showing up. Someone will see 40+” out of this hurricane since it is so slow moving.

Hurricane moving westward at about 6mph.  About to make landfall near Wilmington.  They are taking the brunt of Florence this morning near the eyewall--as well as areas north of there in rain bands coming in continuously from the Atlantic.

Reports of 10 foot storm surge in New Bern...

People are awaiting water rescues, on their roofs in some cases... I’m trying to figure out how that works with hurricane force winds?

Morning news discussed this.  Local officals said it could take hours or even a full day before they can get to anyone considering the slow movement of Florence.

Now they have just issued a Flash Flood Emergency for Morehead City and New Bern. TWC has a live shot from New Bern this morning and it looks like the North Carolina National Guard is evacuating some people.

My friend’s house is currently sitting inside the eye. They are stationed at the PD and I can’t tell if they are in the actual eye or eyewall. He said “It looks absolutely crazy here.”

If Florence stays on this same heading it will be back over water in the next few hours as it heads SW towards Myrtle Beach.

While it may have made a bigger bang in the media for Florence to land as a Cat 4 it's really amazing that it is still holding as a Cat 1 this many hours after contact with land and that the forecast has it maintaining Hurricane status until sometime in the early hours of Saturday morning, after which the track says it still has TS status when it gets to Columbia.  As has been discussed for the past couple of days it's one thing to take a big hit and then start recovery 12 hours later, it's another to get ground down over 24, 48, or 72 hours like they're experiencing in the Carolinas right now.

Kind of similar to Harvey, which stalled as a Cat 1 for days right over Houston.

The area around Morehead City to New Bern is getting Harvey’ed right now. Absolutely pummeled with feeder bands. Seeing radar indicated amounts over 15” now both there and just SW of Wilmington. New Bern got the worst of the surge as well. Bad situation there for the next 12-24 hours at least.

The flow around Flo' is already affecting us here in TN.  Storms are moving completely backwards from normal.

Beyond the human suffering, which is tragic enough, its being reported that much of Wilmington will never look the same after Florence.  She's taking a toll on most of the old, large trees that have graced the city for 60-80 yrs.  Not even a mighty oak can withstand 90mph winds when the ground is saturated with feet of rain.  There's nothing for the roots to hold on to.

Sooooo back to Snowdog's statement about the media over-hyping Flo. I assume everyone has seen the video of The Weather Channel reporter by now? How would you like to be that guy? He'll never live that down.  ::rofl::

The reporter standing in the storm has become a bit cliche and over the top.

And I believe that’s Mike Seidel- a vet who knows better. Ratings anyone? ...oh actually anyone watches TWC anymore?
