This storm now has Sustained winds of 130 miles per hour with gusts to 148 MPH and it continues to strengthen.

Here is the Hurricane Scale used by the National Hurricane Center:

 

A MANDATORY EVACUATION has been ordered for the Outer Banks of North Carolina.  All residents and visitors MUST LEAVE beginning at 7:00 AM Tuesday.  Anyone choosing to remain is asked to write their Social Security Number on their forearm with permanent black  marker so their bodies can be identified after the storm kills them.

Its quite possible this will be the strongest storm to make landfall in NC in 150 years of recorded weather history.

 SOLD OUT

Stores all along the coast of North Carolina are ALREADY SOLD OUT of water and batteries.  Some stores (Walmart, LOWES, Home Depot) expect deliveries tomorrow.)  Panic Buying of food and water is already taking place so if you do not yet have a supply of Emergency food and water, or gasoline in your vehicles, you do not have much time to TRY getting prepared.  DO IT NOW.

    By Wednesday, it will become "steerable"...I see it heading North Northwest with a Broadside hit on Long Island... Many Deep State operatives live there...The UN, The New York Times and Millions of Welfare recipients go away in the blink of an eye..The rebuilding of Manhattan will create a Building Boom never seen before...It will be a Win Win!

    One error ellipsoid still has it as a possibility of hitting the Savannah area, which has not had a direct strike from a hurricane in 130 years, so a hit on Savannah could be the worst hurricane disaster in US history, even than Katrina, because the Georgia coast is totally unprepared for a major hurricane.

    That last major hurricane to strike Savannah was in 1898. If Hurricane Florence turns towards Savannah, it could be the worst hurricane disaster in US history.

    Hal, using Ventusky and earth.nullschool.net, they both only show max winds of 80mph, ANYwhere around the periphery, whether at 10M or 250M above sea level. That is a SIGnificant difference from the current "news" posts about "Cat4" wind speeds.

    I'm a thinking this will stay out to sea just off the coast. But still going to be a close call but normally these monster storms stay off the east coast.

    Obviously being engineered. Rural people who usually vote conservative, can't vote if their communities are torn up and flooded. Rural people in California who are usually conservative, can't vote if their communities are burned up.

    I'm just saying
