Mt. Holly NWS Latest Update

Hurricane Sandy will have a severe impact on our region over the next several days:
Strong damaging sustained winds 35 to 50 mph over a prolonged period of time (24 to 48 hours), with gusts up to near hurricane strength. Strongest winds are expected south and east of the I-95 corridor.
Extremely heavy rainfall.
Major to record inland flooding along streams and rivers.
Major to record coastal flooding. The full moon on October 29 just makes things worse.

Options for the storm to miss our area are rapidly dwindling. Confidence on the storm having a major impact on our region continues to increase. The focus of efforts should be on when Sandy hits our region, not if Sandy hits our region.
Next briefing package will be issued by 600 PM on Sunday, October 28th.
