Being new to North Carolina I have been listening and finding info about hannah, thanks to all your help. I heard yesterday on the different reports that hannah was like Floyd. I looked that one up and I was wondering what those who through this storm thought. How they are alike at this point or how they may differ.

They are nothing alike right now. At this point Floyd was a powerful cat 4 hurricane that took a sharp right turn and thankfully weakened before hitting NC. it then dump over 20 inches of rain on already saturated soil in eastern NC causing historic flooding. As for Hanna, we are still in a drought situation and hanna is not expected to stall or even move slowly like Floyd did. Hope this eases any fears you may have michaganmom.

I believe that Hurricane floyd was preceded by Hurricane Dennis...which produced a lot of rain. The previous poster mentioned saturated soils...Dennis was the reason for that.

Also...Hanna will likely not be stronger than a CAT 2 storm upon landfall...and maybe not even that strong.
