A buoy off Sandy Hook measured 30' waves during Sandy.


WILMINGTON, N.C. (CBS/AP) — Coastal residents fleeing a potentially devastating blow from Hurricane Florence encountered empty gasoline pumps and depleted store shelves as the monster storm neared the Carolina coast with 140 mph winds and drenching rain that could last for days. The National Hurricane Center’s Tropical Analysis and Forecast Branch said waves within the hurricane were more than 80 feet high.
Hurricane Resource Guide
Wave heights to 83 ft were measured early this morning under the NE quadrant of Hurricane Florence. These enormous waves are produced by being trapped along with very strong winds moving in the same direction the storm’s motion,” the branch said.

there were rounds of coastal flooding up and down the NJ coast due to astronomical highs, and long term ENE winds.


as to Florence, a slow storm, big storm, surge and flooding the major problem.

Anywho, we do like SC, just hope for more than just a Vacation.
Where have you visited, and where do your interests lie. Fishing, sitting on a beach, golf, mountain lakes, mudbogging? Gated communities or country acreage? All manner of possibilities are here. Nascar at the track too tough to tame is 8 miles from me as the crow flies. I can hear them run from my property......close enough for me. Maybe we should get together family style on one of your visits.

Haven't followed it as close as you but I think the track changed slightly to make it more of a NC impact. Also, wind has decreased significantly which is always a good thing.

great message to remember is that the wind and tides get the attention but it is the rain and flooding that does the most damage incl loss of life

The wind decreased due to a number of factors but the wind field widened and the storm has slowed increasing the breadth and duration of the impacts.


Not good.


Remember Sandy was not at Hurricane strength when it made landfall, yet the impacts were catastrophic.

Vacation, Myrtle Beach, only vacations is our only experience.Tired of heavy winters up her in Upstate NY
Looking in the coastal areas north to south of SC. We have looked a bit in between Conway and the shore.
But as of now, up in the air. Once we get through the holidays we'll get serious.
Ill keep you posted, Ragman (Bob) lives in the Myrtle Beach area, hope he got out of town for a few days with this storm.
Thank goodness it backed down a bit but, as of this am's news reports, they are more afraid of water, than wind.

Just looked at a Myrtle Beach shore cam and it looked pretty calm for right now. Surf looked low and trees blowing mildly. Maybe its too soon.

Surge will hit certain spots hard, but the rain will be the story out of this storm.

The counter clockwise spin of this storm as it moves inland creates a hard onshore wind at the top of the cyclone. On the return the wind gust is in an offshore direction. Myrtle beach was at the bottom of the cyclone and not experiencing the on shore wind gusts..........yet

Image of Tropical Depression Florence I captured off a satellite earlier this morning.


I have a Raspberry pi, setup with a plug in Software Defined Receiver, and a simple antenna which allows you to directly download images from a few of NOAA's low-earth-orbit satellites.


Yeah, I know I can get better pics off the internet, but just have to do this "because"
