If anyone cares to know where I live there are plenty of maps on TV now. Just look at center of Florence's cone! My 5 Larrivee's, 2 Nationals, Weber mando, Hofner bass and rest getting out of my wood frame house and going to partners brick house basement.

It may to late to get but you need 2 weeks of water,a gallon for each family member,2 weeks of canned goods or dry goodsr.Put toilet paper,under ware,important papers and some pants and shirts in water tight plastic bags.Don't expect help from the gov.,the National Guard is your friend.Some simple medical supplies,if you take meds get them refilled NOW.If your in a house you'l want to make the bathroom a safe room.You'll need a sheet of one inch playwood for cover put a mattress on top and pillows in the tub.Good luck my friend and take care.A hurrican Andrew survivour.

Yea I got most of that covered. I've lost count long ago of how many we've had here including direct hits. Bertha, Fran, Floyd plus bunches more. But this one sounding like it will likely be the worst hit if it indeed hits here. I'll be at partners brick house, down in basement if needed. And yes her house is up on bluff not prone to flooding. I'm just hoping my house doesn't get messed up. Thanks!

It is stressful. I just hope the aftermath is bearable. I'm getting a lil old! After Bertha and Fran hit back to back in 96 I spent months cleaning up. Thanks.

Could get a lot of rain in western part of state as it gets squeezed by the mountains. Good luck to her as well.

Best of luck to you! Our recent straight line wind event here in Michigan seems minor in comparison to a Force 5 hurricane. We were without power for 3+ days and never lost sight of the fact that some folks very often have it much worse. You've added merit to the old adage that "it's good to have friends in high places".

I'm ok but our area took the worst hit. Swansboro NC. Roofs off, surge flooding almost got friend in New Bern. She was stuck as water came up to her 2nd story apt and luckily she had keys for neighbors 3rd story. Gotta run. Had to drive to certain spot to get internet. Otherwise cellular sys pretty much doing texts only. Later...matt

Yes the guitars are fine along with my friends 1931 Gibson banjo and a couple centuries-old fiddle. Those two alone are worth tens of thousands. They are all over in my music partners bomb shelter of the a basement. Still no internet at home, only sketchy on phone. Yea we got blasted pretty good this time. A member or 2 I think are just down the road in Wilmongton. No picnic there either.
