Carolina Braces for Florence Storm Surge

Nightmare Hurricane Florence Poses Far Reaching Dangers Florence’s quiet potential disaster: Hog manure
Charles Bowen | 14 September, 2018, 10:58

North Carolina corrections officials said more than 3,000 people were relocated from adult prisons and juvenile centres in the path of Florence, and more than 300 county prisoners were transferred to state facilities.

Students of East Carolina University's Coastal Storms class use anemometers to measure wind speeds at Union Point Park in New Bern, N.C., on Thursday.

Storm surge is caused in part by the brunt of hurricane force winds.

Hurricane Florence is continuing to push towards a landfall around the North Carolina/South Carolina border, and is beginning to lash the central Atlantic seaboard with damaging winds and storm surge. But while the storm is predicted to pass near Wilmington, North Carolina, the majority of surge-related flooding will actually be to north near Pamlico Sound.

The News & Observer reports that the storm's path shifted early Wednesday and it is now bearing down on southern North Carolina and northern SC, where it could dump up to 40 inches of rain in places.

It was not expected to threaten land any longer on Thursday. That makes it hard to project how the region will ultimately be affected.

Hurricane Florence is beginning to bear down on the Carolinas with heavy winds and rising tides. His group, the Office of Water Prediction and Luettich's team are working together to build such models now. "So the potential impact from the surge has not changed because the system is weaker", he said. It is still considered risky with potential for strong winds and hazardous flooding.

At the 500-acre North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro, workers shepherded a menagerie including elephants, giraffes and chimpanzees indoors, forming a sort of modern-day, stationary Noah's Ark to ride out the flood.

Manure lagoons are about as pleasant as they sound-vast open-air ponds of manure located next to the many hog farms near the North Carolina coast. Her team manages 32 wild horses living in the Rachel Carson Reserve near Beaufort, North Carolina.

In the tiny community of Sea Breeze near Wilmington, Roslyn Fleming, 56, made a video of the inlet where her granddaughter was baptised because "I just don't think a lot of this is going to be here".

Two detention facilities in SC that are within government-mandated evacuation zones will not relocate inmates ahead of Hurricane Florence's landfall there. Meanwhile, evacuations are underway in the Philippines where Super Typhoon Mangkhut has reached the strength of a Category 5 hurricane. The latter had to be relocated back to the reserve after the storm.

"There definitely is a risk, but the horses are smart". But officials are not taking down their guard yet, and would wait until early next week to determine whether BGE could afford to send crews to other regions to help, she said.

The North Carolina Community Foundation (NCCF) is a local humanitarian organization based in North Carolina that partners with local charities that support the community - and is still ranked as a highly-rated charity now providing aid to the Carolinas ahead of Florence.
