Thanks, it hasn't hit yet. I'm apprehensive and somewhat frightened remembering Matthew from just two years back, and this one sounds even worse and bigger than Matthew; even worse. As long as that big tree holds in the front yard and doesn't crash through the roof...oh, man...and we were stupid and didn't get the gutters cleared of pine straw...and I didn't get enough batteries. We have a lot of bottled water though. I'm going to the grocery store very early Thurs. a.m. for more non perishable food items. Hope I can still find batteries and ice.

Pinkie are evacuations suggested where you live?'


How tall is the tree?

Evacuations are mandatory in the Myrtle Beach area of S.C. North Myrtle Beach is only 60 miles or somewhat less from here. Around 56 miles or less.  And mandatory in Wilmington, N.C. which is only about 75 miles away. But since then, Florence has been down graded to Category 2 instead of 4 (at one time it was a 5) and last I read it will make landfall Saturday instead of tomorrow, or today rather Thursday (it's 3 a.m. Thursday EST), but all that's subject to change. It won't be as devastating here (it appears right now) as Matthew was in 2016 but it still won't be a picnic. I like rain, but this will be much too much of a good thing; we'd had a drought here. Crops will be ruined by all the water. Previously they suffered from too little. I think a high school has been designated a shelter in this small town. Why do these monster storms always make a beeline for the Carolinas now; used to be Florida or New Orleans, more recently Harvey in Texas; but of course it's terrible no matter where. Tornadoes spinning off are a big fear. The big tree in my front yard near the house is very tall It would cost $800 or more to cut it down. I don't really want to remove it, but it feels dangerous as the roots might weaken enough to topple it over from the onslaught of relentless heavy rains
