It looks like there is an outside chance that the storm could impact the triangle as a decent system. Anyone out there taking any precautions at this point?

Is this the sandstorm or the murder hornets?

I don't think it's a strong enough storm to majorly affect the Triangle even if it came directly at us

It's only a category 1 currently that's going to weaken a bit probably before it even gets to us. That and we appear to be on the outer band of its affects when it gets to NC. Not really much concern right now outside of watching where it is right now.

Tropical Tidbits as of last night indicated there is a ton of sheer that will come into play between Bahamas and FL which will shred the storm's ability to organize and strengthen.

Lots of time between now and Monday, but it doesn't seem, as of now, that this is going to be a massively impactful event here.

Obvious "dynamic, unpredictable nature of nature" caveats.

Also if it brushes the coast, the strongest winds are on the east side of the storm.

WRAL just posted as of now "worst case scenario" .5-1 inch of rain, wind 10-15 mph.

Moved my vacation to tomorrow.

In addition to paying attention to the strength of the winds, the speed of the storm must be factored in to one's preps. We have had some terrible damage from very slow moving/stalling Cat 1s.

Fortunately, regardless of speed of its winds, this one appears to be moving along at a pretty good clip.

Good luck.
