Thanks for all the info. It would be arew luck my husband leaves New Port News airport Friday ann we will leave Michigan around 7:00 next Tuesday. I sure don't feel like coming in in the middle of storm we will arrive at some point Wednesday morning to Elizabeth City. I guess I will keep a eye out. If we were there I;m sure we would have lots of advice but with us moving in a week to the area I'm a little concerned. It would be my luck. I have hit more than one deer in Michigan. A few years ago I hit a deer and the people who lived in front of where I hit it came out and said they have never seen a deer around there house in the 10 years they lived there....surprise I just did on my windshield. It would be our luck to move to a area that might have a hurricane coming. Even if it doesn't come right in the area you can still get a big storm can't you?

I saw mention of it but I doubt it will hit land in my area. Back in 2004 I believe it was August and September when they hit us.

After 2004, I'm a bit blase' about hurricanes. I probably shouldn't be but thats how it is.

Reese, hurricane conditions can extend out to 100 miles from the center of a large storm. So it is always best to be prepared.

I agree evacutate and plan on staying until the electricity comes back on. You can be without electricity;water and sewer for weeks sometimes if a CAT 3 or above.There isn't anyone going to be able to recue you if you decide not to for sometime after the strom.

Well I think you're out of the woods with this one, seems to be taking a more Northwest route, there should be big seas along the East Coast though, I don't think the winds extending out will be a factor either.

But this looks like this is going to be a interesting and active season!!
