Wave heights to 83 ft were measured early this morning under the NE quadrant of Hurricane Florence. These enormous waves are produced by being trapped along with very strong winds moving in the same direction the storm's motion. #HurricaneFlorence https://t.co/26J6Uogt6o pic.twitter.com/mdjGD5yibg

People think they are out of the woods because it is downgraded to a Cat 1 landfall. This storm is coming to almost a standstill. There is going to be a lot of rain.
There is still going to be over 24 hours of tropical force winds in a lot of places and hurricane force winds in limited places. I don't understand why people are upset about taking precautions, especially when all everyone heard 13 years ago or so, is that people in New Orleans had over 7 days notice to get out and didn't.

some guy said this morning that once we have landfall, that it'll slow to a "walking pace", i.e. 4-5 mph - that will equal a ton of rain.

By the time it leaves, it's expected to have unloaded 10 trillion gallons of rainfall in North Carolina, weather.us meteorologist Ryan Maue said. That's enough to fill more than 15 million Olympic-size swimming pools.

Katrina was not that powerful and that's what caused the big problem in Nola and that's why ppl didn't leave. They would have been fine but the leeves didn't hold and that's on local, State and federal governments.

There will be flooding here but not like Katrina. Thankfully it looks like NC gonna miss a lot of the rain and the hog shit pits should hold.

This one looks like Bertha or Floyd not Hugo or Hazel. It's gonna fuck things up some but nothing more than usual

You are absolutely correct. Katrina was a small storm.

On August 27, the storm reached Category 3 intensity on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind scale, becoming the third major hurricane of the season. An eyewall replacement cycle disrupted the intensification, but caused the storm to nearly double in size.[1] The storm rapidly intensified after entering the Gulf, growing from a Category 3 hurricane to a Category 5 hurricane in just nine hours. This rapid growth was due to the storm's movement over the "unusually warm" waters of the Loop Current.[13]


Katrina on August 28, nearing the Gulf Coast.
Katrina attained Category 5 status on the morning of August 28 and reached its peak strength at 1800 UTC that day, with maximum sustained winds of 175 mph (280 km/h) and a minimum central pressure of 902 mbar (26.6 inHg). The pressure measurement made Katrina the fifth most intense Atlantic hurricane on record at the time, only to be surpassed by Hurricanes Rita and Wilma later in the season; it was also the strongest hurricane ever recorded in the Gulf of Mexico at the time.
Such a tiny storm, completely the fault of New Orleans.
Katrina made its second landfall at 1110 UTC on August 29, as a Category 3 hurricane with sustained winds of 125 mph (205 km/h), near Buras-Triumph, Louisiana. At landfall, hurricane-force winds extended outward 120 miles (190 km) from the center and the storm's central pressure was 920 mbar (27 inHg). After moving over southeastern Louisiana and Breton Sound, it made its third landfall near the Louisiana–Mississippi border with 120 mph (190 km/h) sustained winds, still at Category 3 intensity.[14] Katrina maintained strength well into Mississippi, finally losing hurricane strength more than 150 miles (240 km) inland near Meridian, Mississippi. It was downgraded to a tropical depression near Clarksville, Tennessee

the study confirmed that Katrina was a Category 1 when it hit New Orleans. The city that sits below the sea, protected by its precarious levees, was on the weaker, west side of Katrina. The report said maximum sustained winds were 95 mph, with occasional gusts a little higher.

You called Katrina a small storm. It was not a small storm. It doesn't matter. I'm not sure where you are, if you are in NC. If you feel no threat from this storm, that is fine. I'm just saying that Florence isn't some tiny storm that is going to blow over. Over the last day it expanded considerably and I think the tropical storm wind field is close to 400 miles in diameter.
If you're in Charlotte, you are correct, it probably won't be that bad. Although I'm not sure how close you are to the mountains, but if they were to get 6-10 rain in a few hours, that would probably cause some flash flooding.

I'll be in Asheville in a few days - yeah, 6-10 inches of rain in the mountains might as well be 20-24 inches the way it collects in the valleys, lakes, rivers and creek beds.

Katrina wasn't the monster it was made out to be is my point. If the levees hadn't failed it wouldn't have the rep. But they did so it's moot.

I'd set Andrew and Hugo has the benchmarks for destructive storms in the last 30 years.

Mountains are gonna get rain. My kid is a soph at app in Boone. They had class cancelled thur and Fri. She was supposed to come home but decided to stay and party is my guess.

Charlotte is looking a 5 inches of rain thru Monday.

The hype has been unbelievable and hurricanes are unpredictable. I'm wait and see.
