Although the eye, is expected to remain at sea when the storm passes the Outer Banks, these communities of small barrier island is expected to experience hurricane force winds early Friday.
While most residents and business owners out of boarding windows, Chris Lilliston was not taking any risk.
“I think we are just going to get some strong winds and some rain,” said Lilliston, as he helped board up windows of the house of a friend. “But we’re trying to be strong. Now is the time to do it instead of when it begins to be disagreeable.”
Red Cross officials are urging people to heed all evacuation notices without delay. The organization is preparing to open shelters as needed.
“We have 82 shelters on standby,” said Red Cross volunteer Jim Guidone. “Fifteen of them are on the alert immediately, which means you can open in less than two hours and begin taking guests. Therefore, we are well prepared for what Earl wants to throw our way.”
Guidone also urged evacuees to inform loved ones about your plans and where they will be during and after the storm.
