I have lived all over the world, including SE North Carolina. Many of the "locals" found there are some of the least intelligent people I have ever been around. Just sayin.

Well, that may be very clever to say... BUT the reality is that the "locals" now are people that are from "all over the world" .

So far its been relatively mild.

Wind gusts currently at 35 mph.

Rain started about 9 PM last night but has been off and on in bands from no rain, light rain to heavy rain blowing sideways at times.

Total rain since last night is at 2.2 inches.

A lot of pine needles and small twigs and branches are every where.

High tide is about 2 PM this afternoon. That along with another 4 hours of rain, plus all the rivers inland draining toward the coast are a recipe for problems later in the day. Right now every thing seems to be draining fairly well with little standing water. Also wind has been generally from the east which is driving ocean water toward land.

Southport is closing roads along the waterfront. That whole area flooded during the 'no-name' storm last year. The same is expected later on today.

Barometric pressure continues to fall from 29.8 inches to 29.5. As Matthew gets closer it will be interesting to see how low it goes.

Temperature is pretty warm at 78.

There have been tornado warnings but no damage reports as of now.

You can use the below link to find out about road closures. Route 211 is currently open per the link and the Facebook page of the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office. Usually the first place to flood on Rt 211 is the main entrance to St. James. The bridge over the Lockwood Folly River on 211 near Rt 17 has flooded over at least once in the last few years.

Thanks, Ditchdoc. Please let us know later, if possible, what 211 is like between 17 and St. James

Also, thanks for that link!

We are staying in Sneads Ferry because our house is not in a flood zone. However, if Matthew turns at Onslow County, the flooding could be at the maximum. One creek could block a road, but we don't need to go out.
