Here We Go Again: Area Braces For Michael

Hurricane Michael is churning in the Gulf of Mexico and is anticipated to make landfall as a major storm today before heading north and east into the Carolinas.

Warning Coordination Meteorologist Nick Petro with the National Weather Service Office in Raleigh says Michael will be a wind and rain event locally, with the possibility for gusty winds and 3-5 inches of rainfall.

Petro says the problems with Michael will be compounded since the storm is coming just weeks after Hurricane Florence.

Locally, Michael will likely lead to some flash flooding, minor river flooding, downed trees, and power outages.

Bottomline – Petro says Eastern and Central Carolina need to take Hurricane Michael seriously.

A Flash Flood Watch and Tropical Storm Watch have been issued for Wayne County and surrounding areas.
