As the East Coast prepares for the arrival of Hurricane Florence, governors of several states have already declared a state of emergency, enabling them to obtain the resources they need to evacuate residents and make other preparations in anticipation of the storm, which recently doubled in intensity.

Mandatory evacuation orders were issued for Dare County and Hatteras Island on Monday. The governor of South Carolina ordered mandatory evacuations of all zones along the coast, affecting almost 1 million people on Tuesday. To aid in the evacuation, all travel lanes into the coastal regions were reversed to allow westbound travel out of the area on two major roadways.

A preliminary analysis from CoreLogic shows that nearly 759,000 homes in the Carolinas and Virginia could suffer damage from the storm surge. Florence, a Category 4 hurricane with sustained winds of 140 mph, is expected to strengthen to almost a Category 5 before it makes landfall. In addition, a foot of rain or more is forecasted for areas from the Outer Banks of North Carolina to Virginia. Depending on which way the storm tracks, storm surges of 15 to 20 feet are also predicted for North and South Carolina.

Please get your emergency plan in place now and prepare.
