    More 'unprecedented' weather. I've been trying to encourage 'looking for a pet-carrier' lady to get her *** moving and evacuate with or without cat. The wind speeds may reach speeds of 50 m.p.h. faster than Ireland had in Ophelia (or ever on record). Severe flooding is expected and most houses are single storey.

    People in Charleston don't seem to have the drill and preparedness that they do in Florida.

    Complacency can be fatal sometimes.

    There's always the person that defiantly states "I rode out Hugo in this house, and I ain't leaving!"

    Worse, there'll be those who feel emboldened by such statements and refuse to leave too.

    Worst of all, these are the people that the emergency services will feel compelled to rescue, thus endangering their own lives.

    Florida doesn't mince words when it comes to hurricanes. "Get out now! We will not be able to come for you until after the storm passes!"

    That type of language has now been adopted in the Carolinas, and it seems to be working.

    Florence is a very impressive storm:

    Jeff Piotrowski, who some may remember from his coverage of Irma and the famous Blue Shed, has posted video of significant storm surge from the Outer Banks.



    The storm remains at least ten hours away from that location.
