I noticed one of the statements in an article written about Hurricane Florence yesterday noted that the storm surge is running 300 miles in front of the storm. That would mean the storm surge starts about 20 hours ahead of Hurricane Florence getting to the coast. It is an interesting fact and could be life threatening long before arrival of the actual hurricane force winds and rain.

These links were great places to see the most current information about Hurricane Florence and other hurricanes. It would be great if everyone were willing and able to move out of harm’s way with this much notice about the storm’s strength and path, but many people in North Carolina and South Carolina coastal areas are not leaving – maybe as much as half of the residents in some areas expected to be hard hit, are actually staying to try and ride out the storm. That is sad to see happen once again.

Anyway, here are the sites that have current Hurricane Florence info –
