If correct, that's going to leave a mark. God bless the poor souls riding that one out. Its one thing for adults to make bad decisions to stay but I feel especially terrible for the older folks that are non-ambulatory, the children (whose foolish parents subject them to their bad choices by staying) and the pets left behind. That is not going to end well there.

Any opinions on how it's gonna effect our coastal waters? Been hoping the cape fear would continue its cleansing but with this amount of fresh water getting ready to be dumped on it our fall inshore season may literally be a wash.

I was wondering the same thing - Would this help rinse stuff out, or add to the nastiness out there?

Also - Ventusky is showing gusts up to 75 MPH for Edenton around midnight Thursday. Do any of you savvy weatherfolks have any opinions on that? I wasn't expecting anything like that. Windy.com is showing 45 MPH gusts for us.

Intensity is the hardest thing to predict, so it is literally a SWAG and dependent on which model is being used. I also typically don't pay attention to gusts, as they are what they say - gusts. Sustained speed is what causes the damage. Gusts are used by internet forecasters to sensationalize.

As far as the waters, just depends on exactly how much we get. Since it will hopefully follow the predictions and be very fast moving, hopefully it won't have much of an additional effect. There isn't anywhere for water to go though, so some flooding is still possible/likely. But more in the way of flash flooding than the slow delayed river flooding like from Florence.

On one hand the easterly winds could drive some of the water out of the rivers (at least that's me being positive) and a lot of bad chemicals/bacteria has already been washed down by Florence.

On the other hand I think about all the debris that's piled up on the road side and if the rivers and swamps breach their banks again all that crap will be somewhere.

After the last storm I put my Bmini too back up. I really hope this thing dies down. I’m too busy to use the boat over the next few weeks and I don’t want to have the six hour round trip to Manteo to take it down again.

What I really don't like about this storm is the fact that it is supposed to make its way across the SE today from the Gulf to the Atlantic and still remain a tropical storm, not even supposed to drop to a depression.

That's because it A) started so strong and B) is moving so fast

B is a good thing. A is not.

I'm across the ICW near the N end of Wrightsville Beach. Wind is pretty sporty right now!! Strong, but not horribly strong, but out of the S which is not a good direction for me. Estimate gusts about 50kt. Tide not that high, maybe a foot or two above normal and dropping.

I see the bottom half of my post got cleared out before I hit post, sorry, the rest actually brought up the potential it has to reform and strengthen once hitting the Atlantic and warm gulf stream waters and doing some crazy crap like Dennis pulled.

It is heading to the English Channel and North Sea. Cornwall and Normandy.

Some serious gusts here near Morehead City. I was in the back porch at 5:00 and I heard some serious, loud noise over toward Newport. Like a B52 taking off. Lots of deep rumbling that lasted a good 3-4 minutes. I hope it wasn’t a tornado but won’t be surprised to hear it was.

Just drove Hwy 24 to Swansboro from MHC and back. A lot of folks must be missing blue and yellow tarps. Saw several along the road and 2 airborne. Neighbors weather station on Bogue Sound registered a couple 55-60 MPH gusts around 7:30. Thank God we didn’t get much rain with the wind. Ready for this crap to be over.

It's gusting about 65 mph or so on Roanoake Island with a light rain, and the tide is up 2 or 3' and steady coming up.
