Hurricane Matthew Update #2 10/5/16

Storm’s track changes dramatically overnight

It is business as usual here on this Wednesday morning on the Outer Banks, but just like everyone else on the east coast our eyes are pointed towards Hurricane Matthew and the proposed storm track of the system.   As of 9 AM the storm was a category 4 hurricane with winds in excess of 115 MPH, and the storm location just south of the Bahamas.

The storm’s projected path this morning shows the storm moving parallel along the coast of Florida, Georgia and South Carolina before making an abrupt move to the right (east) and then offshore.   The storm may perhaps even move towards the south at that point.

Certainly it is too early to make any certain projections for the storm, but if true this latest forecast would be a positive development for those of us on the Outer Banks as the effects felt here would be minimal.

At this time the Outer Banks is under a state of emergency, but there are no storm watches or warnings, and there are no evacuations ordered for our area.  The Emergency Management’s control group will meet again this afternoon to review updated storm track forecasts and issue any updates to us at that time.

In the meantime we are enjoying a sunny, but blustery day here on the Outer Banks and as stated it is business as usual for us at Blue.

All the best from the beach!
