Storm Pulse, North Carolina. These clouds above look innocent and very beautiful and serene, but deny most destructive force the corner. Long time residents of the south coast to see these and know that it is time to prepare.
As we moved to North Carolina (literally) during Hurricane Hanna in 2008, weakened to a tropical storm by the time I felt in my broken down U-Haul on the shoulder of I-95 north of Richmond, VA. I had sent my wife and children ahead to stay with a friend in Greenville, North Carolina while waiting for nearly six hours in the rain playing with little food or water waiting for a crane to arrive. Arguing through several layers, Äúcustomer service, and agents of the AU on the phone, I was swayed by the winds 30-40 miles per hour.
What Earl has in store for North Carolina, only know Earl. We decided to ride out since we were only tangentially in its path, but our house that belongs in Beaufort, North Carolina is much, much closer to where Earl is expected to make landfall on the Outer Banks. Our tenants will update me as soon as possible after the storm passes, but my thoughts are with him and his family. Just moved here from Iowa, land of tornadoes, from near where I grew up.
We the people of Iowa is no stranger to disasters, floods and tornadoes AI are an annual occurrence. I saw twisters Äôve break apart neighboring houses AOS, cutting a swath through the neighborhood less than a mile from me. I, who knocked through Äôve on I-80 east bound through a funnel seeing landfall Nebraska westbound in my side mirrors. With the pedal to the floor I was only going 40 mph. Unpredictable paths and miniature scale of tornadoes is something comforting but in face of a major hurricane. When you know a hurricane is inevitable that you can evacuate, but ownership and memories tend to be flattened and there is nothing you can do to stop it.
We fear for our tenants, our home, and most importantly our friends in Carteret County. Unless last-minute changes to Earl, the trajectory of administrative officers should be safe for the most part. I will do my best to live and live-blog-tweet (@ kzelnio) events that can develop in Wilmington. You can follow on Twitter # BFTEarl continue our good friends south of the Scientific and fried Cruz Bomai as crouching in Beaufort. Here is the topic of a recent storm StormPulse with the prediction of wind speed of 8 pm Thursday evening. Wilmington may be just inside the area bursts of high wind.
