Open call to Carolina CCFers. This storm is no joke. If you see Jim Cantore, run for your life.

If anyone needs to GTF out you are welcome here. I have room for your boat and a fenced yard for dogs.

I was given help when Irma landed on my doorstep and this bitch is just as bad.

Been keeping an eye on this one for sure as it's gonna hit several of our Correct Craft Fans. Batten Down the Hatches Boys. Florence is pissed and she's coming for Charlotte. We all love a good Cat fight but I think Flo is gonna win this one. Be careful, and stay safe y'all and keep us updated.

Adding to what I started on the BadinFest thread, but not wanting to take that thread too far off course. Winds shouldnt be bad as far inland as Greg and I are, I'm about 120 miles inland, Greg a little more. But as we learned two years ago, its the flooding that can be the greater concern. This affects me on two fronts. 1 - I live on a small neighborhood, HOA controlled lake. We have 6 dams in our neighborhood. Didnt think much of it until Matthew resulted in spillway damage on another neighborhood lake about an hour from me. The spillway was undermined, but the dam wall was OK. But the state determined the dam was no longer secure and artificially breached the dam and drained the lake. You can understand what that did to property values. The site developer/dam owner is kind of absentee at this point and the "waterfront" owners have no recourse.



2 - I do environmental/engineering consulting. One of our biggest clients is Duke Energy. They have dozens of dams, some coal ash basin, some cooling pond, some major lakes. They are in super crazy readiness mode now. During same storm mentioned above, one of their cooling pond dams breached. Its about a 500 acre lake. The lake was small enough and the general area already flooded enough that there were no serious downstream impacts, but it certainly got Dukes attention. They have already issued us a significant work order for response actions related to Florence, should the need arise.

120 miles doesn't seem like much distance given the size of the storm. What's your plan?

We are at the storm's landfall end. Most of the SC and NC landfall hurricanes stall when they hit the Blue Ridge. A few go over, but drop most of their tropical storm-ness rain here on the way over.

Over the past few days, we have had fash flooding ahead of the storm. The initial forecasts were for 20-24 inches of rain when the storm comes through.... but thankfully, it has been delayed and downgraded some. We are bracing for down trees and power lines due to the soft ground and flooding preceding the storm.

It is gonna be rough but at least we aren't where Jim Cantore is! Stay safe y'all!

Mine is slightly different from Larry's. Think I will replace the cheese ball container and get ready to refresh the tanks for the Badin Mini

Not to deminish this storm Bruce but we were 50 miles from where Irma came ashore, the only thing we had happen was my rotten post fence fell over. We were very fortunate. Hope everything goes as well for you guys

Tough Guy Gary says ....... "takes more than a hurricane........."

Actually, I think you midwesterners have had more river flooding over the summer and past years than we've had. Every emergency is a local one........ here neighbors are raising boats in lifts for out of towners, folks are behaving well together and looking out for one another. It's not like Facebook at all!

I wouldn’t worry about wind too much, rain is another story and I heard Florence is expected to stall. We’re probably 75 miles inland which seems to buffer the wind but tornadoes that spawn are a nightmare. During Irma I started measuring the rainfall after the first ~24 hours (which seemed to be 4” already) and for the next 24 hours I measured 22” of rain. I’m in a lower area but we have good drainage canals which evidently did a great job of moving the water to some other poor souls house but the ground and aquafur was so full and saturated that most of the wells in the area began to overflow which then caused erosion washing ground away, footings, houses caving in and sink holes. I seen wells flow into the electrical pvc conduit, fill the conduit then spill out into the panel and flood the house out. So many people survived the storm only to have their houses fall in a few days later. I’d take 120 mph wind in a 24 hour period over stalled TS for 5 days.

The local weatherman up here, Adam Epstein, suggested that Mainers call their friends and family in NC to make sure they knew there was a hurricane coming and find out if they had a plan. That's just the kind of plan he needs to receive.

Just to let all the members know that Nautique Parts, one of our sponsored parts suppliers is located in the direct path of the oncoming hurricane. Was looking on their website and they asked if we could keep them in our thoughts and prayers to come through this without great loss to them and theirs.

How far is White Lake from the coast? That area is flat. I hope it does not get destroyed.

Larry,, he is sort of the same in a different way... Never knew we were so close to the NC coast when we've been there. I hope they're ok.

It does not take much I guess. We were 50 miles from the eye of Irma with not very much between it and us. Our street never even lost any utilities.
On a side note the weatherman here just said we have gone 5 days with out rain. Possibly going 12 with out,the longest of all summer! Maybe the river will open in time to put the boat away

Good luck Gary. Once it opens, the river will be so full of PWC's, tubers and surfers, you won't be able to get the boat off the lift!!

Hurricane Hugo crushed Charlotte in 1989. It was a Cat 4 that hit Charleston and came through Charlotte (3.5 hour drive from Charleston) and did a ton of damage. I lost power for 2 weeks and most lost power for one month. My parents live 90 minutes North of Charlotte in the foothills of the NC mountains above Hickory, and they lost 20 Oak Trees in a 10 acres woods. That was almost five hours from the coast.

Some light breeze here now. My friend who lives near Rocky Mount NC - about 90 minutes east from Badin has gone under a tropical storm warning so things are heading west. If all goes well there will be no delays (from the storm) in the goodies from Jeg's or Summit........

Donald - Hugo hit Charlotte at night on my 21st birthday. I showed up to work at Holiday Harbor Marina the next day hung over only to find the marina was gone. I spent the next 6 months living on a houseboat at the gas dock and rebuilding the docks. It was a total surprise to me and I think everyone else,

I was supposed to drive down to Davidson today for my grandma's 95th birthday but decided it wasn't too smart. If I remember correctly, Hugo was still Category 3 when it hit Charlotte, and for a while it looked like Florence might do the same thing, It appears now that may not happen, and I hope for everyone's sake it doesn't. Still, all those folks by the coast and in the flats of NC and SC are going to be hit very hard.

Good luck everyone.
