Hurricane Irma: Storm Tracks West

Hurricane Irma: Storm Tracks West”

Port Everglades said it expects the U.S. Coast Guard to issue a 24-hour hurricane alert by noon Friday, and that the agency would time the closing of the port to marine traffic "based on the track of the storm". Forecast models show several possibilities for the Carolinas.

Elardo says a lot can happen in five days, and Hurricane Irma could blow out to sea this weekend.

Evacuation orders took effect yesterday, principally in south Florida where Miami is expected to take a direct hit from the monster storm. Fortunately, people in SC have time.

McMaster also signed two executive orders Thursday.

As Holthaus noted in a blog about the storm, Irma's hurricane-force wind-field is roughly the size of MA and packs five times the overall destructive power of Andrew's, thanks to its massive size. The Associated Press reports the cancellation is one of many in the state of Florida after Gov. Rick Scott ordered all state colleges and universities closed through Monday to support shelter and emergency relief efforts.

"Irma is likely to make landfall in Florida as a unsafe major hurricane, and will bring life-threatening wind impacts to much of the state regardless of the exact track of the center", the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said late Friday morning.

The biggest question seemed to be not whether he would issue an order, but what counties would be included - depending on the next forecasts. We've seen too many Florida license plates to count, along with a few other states.

"Now is the time to prepare", McMaster said. That means a much greater portion of the state will experience hurricane-force winds. They also said the highest threat of tornadoes will be along the storm's eastern edge.

Emergency officials in SC are warning residents to remain alert as Hurricane Irma approaches.

Greenville County Emergency Management said people should have an emergency kit on hand, including batteries, water, medication, flashlights and first aid. And we get hit by hurricanes.

A decision on evacuations could come Friday afternoon.

Earlier in the day, McMaster lifted the mandatory evacuation order for health care facilities, including hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, alcohol and substance abuse hospitals and other medical facilities in Dorchester, Charleston, Berkley, Georgetown and Horry counties.
