Driving to Florida next week from Cleveland and not sure whether to take I-77 to 26 to I-95 (our normal preferred route) or whether to take I-75 through Atlanta. Any advice from you locals would be much appreciated. Worried about getting stuck in detours or flooded roads or washed out roads.

There remains a section of I-95 in NC that is washed out, so they have reduced it to one lane. That shouldn't affect at all, however. I think you'd be fine taking your preferred route.

I was in Savannah when Matthew swept by (late Friday/early Saturday), and left for my home in Florida on the morning after. Even in that early-morning time period, none of I-95 was impassable. There were trees that had fallen on the road, but workers had done a 'cut and toss' to open up at least one lane of the roadway as early as 10am (when I passed through). I rode south this past weekend and saw a lot of the trees had been further cleared from the sides of the road, though some of the fallen trees were still there. Nothing even close to the road, though. So if you can get through the Carolinas, it's smooth sailing on 95 the rest of the way.

The blown-over billboards up and down I-95 are a curiosity, though. I kind of hope they aren't replaced. No big loss, there!

But, how will people know about South Of The Border?

I-95 is open throughout NC, if occasionally one lane at a time.

I-95 open in both directions throughout N.C.

When I lived near the Outer Banks of NC, the billboard owners would always take parts (every other section) of the billboards down to let the wind pass through. I guess they have regular visits from storms since they stick out into the ocean and have that down pat. Something that others could learn from.
