NC 'will see significant tropical storm or hurricane impact by Monday'

NC 'will see significant tropical storm or hurricane impact by Monday'”

The Category 5 hurricane is 270 miles east of Antigua; the current track places the storm in the Florida Keys early Sunday.

Cooper said the emergency teams from North Carolina that went to Texas to assist after Hurricane Harvey have all returned home. They do predict Irma will bring heavy rain, wind damage, power outages and flash flooding in the mountains.

They say some scheduled work may be delayed by the storm, but Charlotte Water is prepared to respond to any emergency situation.

Irma is expected to weaken into a tropical storm by the time it reaches inland North Carolina, said Nick Petro, a representative from the National Weather Service. The greatest impact is expected to be in the mountains and near the SC border.

On Wednesday Gov. Roy Copper declared a State of Emergency for all 100 counties in North Carolina, joining the states of Florida, Georgia and SC. Public Safety Secretary Erik Hooks said state emergency management officials are coordinating with local officials and state partners to ensure they have what they need and that their teams and supplies are ready should the storm impact North Carolina. According to Sprayberry, the full spectrum of disaster response resources are being made available, with staging areas being organized in Kinston, Greensboro, and Asheville.

"Our emergency operations are now activated", said Cooper. Coastal areas of North Carolina will begin feeling the effects of Irma late Thursday and Friday in the form of large surf and rip-tides, especially at southern facing beaches.
