Hurricane Irma Expected to Hang a Right Today

Triangle residents prepare for Irma; NC impact remains uncertain

Assuming that happens, we are talking about a storm that could cause more destruction than 1992's Hurricane Andrew and 1989's Hurricane Hugo ... combined.

A direct hit from Irma appeared increasingly unlikely in North Carolina, where emergency officials urged people to stay vigilant with preparations.

Georgia Power spokeswoman Holly Crawford said Monday the areas with the most outages are Glynn and Chatham counties. However, he said AEMC is preparing itself to respond to outages, including by bringing in more supplies and making sure all its trucks are fueled up.

Obviously we are still four days away from Irma possibly making a SC landfall - meaning there is still a chance the storm's projected path could change - but with each new advisory, it certainly seems as though the system is drawing a bead on the Palmetto State.

Irma has weakened to a still-deadly tropical storm as it swirled beyond Florida, killing at least three people in Georgia, flooding the coast, sending trees crashing onto homes and forcing the world's busiest airport in Atlanta to cancel hundreds of flights.

"The storm is still so far away". The order is created to help Virginia mitigate any damage caused by the storm and to streamline the process that the Commonwealth uses to provide assistance to other states vulnerable to Irma.

"We are not in the clear and we can't let our guard down", Gov. Roy Cooper said. Laessig and his wife rode out Hurricane Matthew as it brushed coastal Georgia last October.

Irma, packing winds of 185 miles per hour (295 kilometers per hour) has left a trail of devastation on small islands in the Caribbean. "But the longer you wait you could be stuck here and it could change again for the worse". Southeast Georgia could get 10 to 12 inches or rain.

"There is a lot we still don't know about this storm, but we do know that North Carolina can expect to feel some sort of effects as soon as early next week, and now is the time to get prepared", Gov. Cooper said. It's also about 100 miles (160 kilometers) from the coast.

"There's a lot of homes that have water in the them right now", Gillen said.
