    Highway patrol was turning around people on Hwy 74 yesterday at Wilmington, I ran OSB that way, they don’t turn supply trucks around. Still more than one way to get back to Myrtle Beach as long as the roads don’t wash out, as there are only a few bridges, and looking at the rain forecast, is very likely along the Waccamaw river basin to have flooding.

    It's not even that. They All use the same models, just interpret them differently. I just don't understand their methodology.

    They closed them in Charlotte so that some of them can be used as shelters.

    I admit that I don't know much about it, nor understand it. But I'm not sure they use the same models. Check this out.

    Also, WS/Forsyth was closed today/Thursday too...no dang idea.
    Many schools, not Davidson Co, got out early today too.
    I was shocked they closed us for tomorrow

    I've lost power as I can't access my cameras anymore. Please keep me informed of conditions in Wilmington!

    I've been following it since four AM. Power looks to have been lost up and down College street about 11PM, and of course elsewhere. Winds currently around 75 MPH best I can tell. Eye is passing over my brother in law's house on Harbor Island at Wrightsville, and soon over my son's apartment across from UNCW.

    ...from Intellicast 7:30AM. Their images usually lag about twenty minutes or thereabouts. The ventusky site looks to lag by several hours.

    We are getting tropical storm force sustained now, with some gusts that seem hurricane force.

    Power outages, and a little damage in my neighborhood.

    I have no idea what my slightly crazy neighbor across the street is thinking, no way he can stop that metal carport from coming over now, it’s swaying 4-5ft, and he’s walking all around it in these winds. I don’t mind helping someone, but I’m also not stupid like this. I’m waiting for that thing to come down and blow across the street into the power lines. Straps look like they broke or come up out the ground.

    You all stay safe down there.
    Wind picking up here, no rain yet.

    Just saw that the projected path has taken a bit of a left turn, so it looks like the eye will miss central/north NC by a wide margin, so Raleigh/Durham shouldn't get hit hard.

    Maybe Charlotte gets hit harder as a result of the shift.

    Good for y’all , that left turn sucks for me, eye going to very slowly pass over my place in SE NC and go into SC eventually. Piedmont areas of NC and SC should just be a rain event with a little breeze that far inland.

    There's already 20k plus without power in Wake County... due to wind, I guess. Getting some pretty strong gusts.

    Here in Midland, no rain. Wind is sporadic.

    Calm right now but a gentle gust every few minutes or so.

    Thinking about all you folks in worser-er-er conditions..

    It isn't bad in Apex. I was trying to figure out how so many are without power. Maybe some areas with old infrastructure?

    Edit - My wife just said the Lifetime Fitness about 1 mile away lost power and closed. Bummer for all the thieves that have been breaking into cars. No income for them today.

    We are not far from there, towards Jordan Lake. Our power just went out now, just before 10:30am.

    Weird, we're still on by 64/540. We have been losing power every time we get a storm lately. Guess we'll lose it soon.

    North Durham. Gusty with decent breeze, but that's about it. The roads were essentially empty this morning on the way to work. Felt like a Sunday holiday: zero traffic.

    I had to leave work this morning to stop my idiot BIL from backfeeding a generator through my parent's dryer socket. Keep in mind we still have power and little to no rain. The stupidity of some people is mindblowing.

    Chesterfield County, SC. About a buck and a half SE of Charlotte.

    Very breezy with occasional gusts. No rain and we still have power.

    My brother has feral cats around his place. He has a fifth of Absolut and I gave him a slingshot and a bucket of rocks. He shouldn't be bored.

    I am amazed you lost power. It is basically calm here with a slight gust every once in a while.

    50mph gusts tend to have that effect. You forget how large the population is in Wake county.

    I must be in a weird bubble. Haven't seen gusts that strong here. Guess we're due then. Might nuke something for lunch before the power goes out.
