    Hurricane Statement

    NCZ046-047-081-093-095-098-103-104-251745- Hurricane Maria Local Statement Advisory Number 37 National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC AL152017 537 AM EDT Mon Sep 25 2017 This product covers Eastern North Carolina **TROPICAL STORM WARNING ISSUED FOR A PORTION OF THE COAST OF NORTH CAROLINA** NEW INFORMATION --------------- * CHANGES TO WATCHES AND WARNINGS: - The Tropical Storm Watch has been upgraded to a Tropical Storm Warning for Carteret, Mainland Dare, Mainland Hyde, Outer Banks Dare, Outer Banks Hyde, and Tyrrell * CURRENT WATCHES AND WARNINGS: - A Storm Surge Watch is in effect for Craven - A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Mainland Dare, Mainland Hyde, and Tyrrell - A Tropical Storm Warning and Storm Surge Watch are in effect for Carteret, Outer Banks Dare, and Outer Banks Hyde - A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for Onslow * STORM INFORMATION: - About 350 miles south-southeast of Buxton NC or about 360 miles southeast of Morehead City NC - 30.6N 73.0W - Storm Intensity 80 mph - Movement North or 355 degrees at 7 mph SITUATION OVERVIEW ------------------ Hurricane Maria located about 350 miles south-southeast of Cape Hatteras is moving north at 7 mph and will continue on this track for the next several days with a slower forward speed expected. Maria is forecast to move between 100 and 150 miles offshore of the North Carolina coast Tuesday Night through Wednesday Night. Tropical Storm force winds of 35 to 45 mph with gusts of 50 to 60 mph are expected to spread along the coast Tuesday afternoon and continue into Wednesday Night. The strongest winds are expected north of Cape Lookout and especially over the Outer Banks. The prolonged gusty north to northeast winds will lead to storm surge inundation of 2 to 4 feet above ground level mainly for the beaches north of Cape Lookout and adjacent to the southern Pamlico Sound. This will produce minor to moderate coastal flooding with ocean overwash likely in vulnerable spots. The very rough surf will continue the threat of life threatening rip currents as well as beach erosion along all beaches. Heaviest rainfall will be confined to mainly the immediate coast with amounts of 1 to 3 inches. This should produce only minor flooding of low lying areas. POTENTIAL IMPACTS ----------------- * SURGE: Protect against life-threatening surge having possible significant impacts across soundside portions of Dare, Hyde, Craven and Downeast Carteret Counties, along with oceanside Dare County north of Cape Hatteras. Potential impacts in this area include: - Areas of inundation with storm surge flooding accentuated by waves. Damage to several buildings, mainly near the coast. - Sections of near-shore escape routes and secondary roads become weakened or washed out, especially in usually vulnerable low spots. - Major beach erosion with heavy surf breaching dunes. Strong and numerous rip currents. - Moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, and piers. Several small craft broken away from moorings, especially in unprotected anchorages. Also, protect against locally hazardous surge having possible limited impacts across Tyrrell and Mainland Dare Counties adjacent to the Alligator River, and soundside portions of Pamlico County. Elsewhere across Eastern North Carolina, little to no impact is anticipated. * WIND: Protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across Eastern North Carolina. Potential impacts include: - Damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about. - Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown over. - A few roads impassable from debris, particularly within urban or heavily wooded places. Hazardous driving conditions on bridges and other elevated roadways. - Scattered power and communications outages. * OTHER COASTAL HAZARDS: Large surf will bring a high threat of life threatening rip currents, dangerous shore break and beach erosion across all Eastern North Carolina beaches. It is recommended that you stay out of the surf zone. * FLOODING RAIN: Protect against locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible limited impacts across Outer Banks Dare and Outer Banks Hyde Counties. Potential impacts include: - Localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations. - Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter currents. Small streams, creeks, canals, and ditches may become swollen and overflow in spots. - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in usually vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding of water occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds become near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief road and bridge closures. Elsewhere across Eastern North Carolina, little to no impact is anticipated. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS ---------------------------------- * EVACUATIONS: If you are exceptionally vulnerable to wind or water hazards from tropical systems, consider voluntary evacuation, especially if being officially recommended. Relocate to a predetermined shelter or safe destination. * OTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION: Now is the time to bring to completion all preparations to protect life and property in accordance with your emergency plan. If relocating to a nearby shelter or to the home of a family member or friend, drive with extra caution, especially on secondary roads. Remember, many bridges and causeways will be closed once higher winds arrive. Also, if you encounter water covering the road, seek an alternate route. Always obey official road signs for closures and detours. Closely monitor NOAA Weather radio or other local news outlets for official storm information. Be ready to adapt to possible changes to the forecast. * ADDITIONAL SOURCES OF INFORMATION: - For information on appropriate preparations see ready.gov - For information on creating an emergency plan see getagameplan.org - For additional disaster preparedness information see redcross.org NEXT UPDATE ----------- The next local statement will be issued by the National Weather Service in Newport/Morehead City NC around Noon EDT, or sooner if conditions warrant. $$ More
