Mandatory evacuations for some friends of mine over on the coast on Hatteras. Ocracoke is a tiny island just south of Hatteras that I hold dear - likely going to get fucked up unless something changes. So far most of the locals I know there plan to ride it out.

Lets not all run around with our fucking heads cut off. Theres a lot of people that dont need to rush, depending on their exact location. Deadly surge is limited to say 20 vertical feet above sea level, and if you are above that in a good house, even the strongside eyewall will be unlikely to hurt you.

Sam, the majority of the damage is going to be from flooding. Especially further inland. You go north and west of Charlotte and you're in the foot hills and mountains. 20" of rain is what they are predicting for that area and that is disastrous, even in areas that are 50' above creek beds. Lots of valleys will become raging rivers.

This did not post for some reason.



Everything is set for search and rescue and search and recovery.

There are enough food and water available for the entire state of North Carolina.

1,000 first responders and the equipment they need are situated in strategic spots so they can go to work as soon as possible. In addition, the volunteer group that has helped out in the past is set to come into the affected area.

The power companies are set to move in and there will be volunteer linemen from other states that are set to come in to help out. They have tons of equipment such as telephone poles and the transfer boxes that usually explode.

Oh, and the insurance companies and FEMA are standing by with the financial aid that folks will need.

Everyone is confident that everything that can be done has been done by City, State, Federal, and volunteer organizations to prepare for the aftermath.


One more thing. President Trump has been accused of transferring FEMA money to a different organization. This is true.

However, the funds that were transferred were left over from last year. By Law, these funds cannot be used for this year's disasters. The funds were transferred in accordance with the law.

Forwyn links to more of Sam's rants to which all of us just *shrug* and say whatever.

If he did actually work in finance, all models are incorporating damages from climate change. Many houses on the coast have also completely lost value even those that have stood centuries. Agricultural productivity in the South and Midwest have seen increased variability with the South already showing loss of yields.

I know a few farmers. Most are begrudgingly accepting climate change as real. Nothing reveals the truth more than the bottom line.

I don't think Sam is anything more than a glorified secretary. He never says anything remotely intelligent other than some non-sequiturs.

And you repeat all the same lies because there are only a few far-right media sources.

We're guaranteed 3 degrees of warming at this point and maybe if we can get our act together, can limit it to 1.5 degrees like the Paris Treaty wants which wouldn't be the end of things because the earth will still be warming and we need a carbon sequstration method.

News from Ocracoke is no power and judging from the videos of them checking the damage at daybreak, just some debris, trees down, and minor flooding. Looks like the outer bands just skimmed the island as it dipped south and the timing worked In their favor with the ocean and sound side tides. Blackbeard’s favorite brothel island lives on.

The Nuese River in New Bern flooded and there are folks needing rescue from rooftops...so far that’s the worst I’ve heard.
