Keep safe. I was having a look at it on windy.com and Florence looks very intimidating :(

I can't remember where I read it now, but apparently there seemed to be more concern over saving tobacco crops ahead of the storm than livestock which left me with a big frown on my face for a bit, but humans often way-out-do animals when it comes to behaving like animals I think. I hope you managed to stock up with the essentials - despite how fraught it sounds it was, Phud.

Let us know how you get, on when you can.

So, perhaps think of the food you are eating, except that it should be other things instead, because we probably could make it a world of events,
for also disastrous results as well, if not any catastrophic such either.

Perhaps downgraded just slightly during today, here where I am sitting, still packing a bit of punch, when next also so.

It could be much like hurricane Hugo here, but thinking that it could become a little worse this time, for only the rainfall being expected.

One thing being noticed, is the eyewall surrounding the eye itself, because inside the eye for only very low pressure, a moment of stillness and ease,
for next that of only churning wind, but only a moment, for next that of passing away.

The fine instrument for only a thermometer in my living room, could be tree part for such, showing both temperature, barometric pressure, and also
hygrometric as well, for that of direct humidity in the air.

But next speak about the weather as well, for only making it one such thing, except for not any importance either.

But next not to confuse either, when only such a thing happening, for also passing by, could be telling about a possible event,
except for sometimes those direct Consequences for a couple of other things, which could be also making for a similar outcome.

I think it's down to a Cat 2.
Still, very dangerous.

Hey - that's a large truck falling over not an earthquake - we get that size in the UK at least once a year!

Seriously, I hope everyone in the path of Florence stays safe over the next few hours as it makes landfall.

HWY12 on the Outer Banks of NC has already been washed out.
EMS services have been suspended. There is a tornado warning out for
coastal counties. Morehead City, Jacksonville and Wilmington are in
some of the heavy rain bands. Estimates of up to four feet of rain. The Outer
Banks may disappear.
