• I heard the National Weather Service call Florence the "storm of a lifetime" but it was only a Category 2?

    Best answer: The Cat meter only reflects wind
    It's the rain and flooding that is ranked as the worst in history.

  • I need tips on how to prepare for a hurricane?

    Best answer: You need to get out NOW, this is NOT a hurricane you want to stick around for! This storm when it hits will come in as a category 4 storm as early as Thursday, this means winds of over 200km an hour, these winds will destroy buildings/homes in its path, power gone etc. This doesn't even include the fact that... show more
    Best answer: You need to get out NOW, this is NOT a hurricane you want to stick around for! This storm when it hits will come in as a category 4 storm as early as Thursday, this means winds of over 200km an hour, these winds will destroy buildings/homes in its path, power gone etc. This doesn't even include the fact that rain totals could hit or even excede 4 feet of water in spots, keep in mind 150mm is enough to swallow cars on road ways.

    If you decide to ride this storm out you will need the following-

    1. Enough water and food to last 72 hours
    2. Fully charged cell phone
    3. First aid kit
    4. Back up generator

    Good luck.

    So I am a huge weather geek and I live in south carolina. The hurricane named hurricane florence was supposed to hit south carolina head on and I was excited about that. I heard stories about hurricane hugo that hit south carolina in 1989 and I was fascinated and wanted to experience what's it like to be in a hurricane. It took a turn to the north and hit north carolina as a category 1 hurricane and we now are only supposed to get remnants of it. My friends think that I am nuts because I am bummed out that we didn't get a direct hit like hurricane hugo. Why is it crazy to be fascinated by hurricanes ?

  • Why is everyone saying that Hurricane Folrence is the strongest hurricane, but they said the same thing about Irma. Why?

    There were literally people debating on if a hurricane 6 was possible because of how strong Irma was.

  • Is amateur storm chasing of a cat 4-5 hurricane feasible?

    I have decided that the next time a storm nears my state (florida) as a cat 4 or 5, I will use vacation days from work and drive to where the eyewall is projected to make landfall. I want to see cat 4 (or even better, cat 5) winds in person. Nailing down the precise landfall point would be difficult, but I would... show more
    I have decided that the next time a storm nears my state (florida) as a cat 4 or 5, I will use vacation days from work and drive to where the eyewall is projected to make landfall. I want to see cat 4 (or even better, cat 5) winds in person. Nailing down the precise landfall point would be difficult, but I would continue to drive until a couple hours before landfall to get to the spot. I would place my car in a parking garage and watch the winds from the inside-- or set my car behind a brick building with the wall on the opposing side of the winds.

  • When will it start to get cold outside?

    It's fall now and it is still 1000 degrees outside. I live in NC so I know that it will never get freezing cold, matter of fact I don;t even think my area got snow last year. It normally doesn't get somewhat cold around here until Thanksgiving
