    - a storm surge watch has been issued for Mainland Dare, Pamlico,
      and Tyrrell

      Hyde, and Tyrrell
    - a storm surge watch is in effect for Craven and Pamlico
    - a tropical storm watch is in effect for Onslow
    - a Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Mainland Hyde

      southeast of Morehead City NC
    - 31.2n 72.9w
    - storm intensity 80 mph
    - movement north or 360 degrees at 7 mph

Situation overview
------------------

Hurricane Maria located about 320 miles south-southeast of Cape
Hatteras is moving north at 7 mph and will continue on this track for
the next several days with a slower forward speed expected. Maria is
forecast to move between 100 and 150 miles offshore of the North
Carolina coast Tuesday night through Wednesday night. Tropical storm
force winds of 35 to 45 mph with gusts of 50 to 60 mph are expected to
spread along the coast Tuesday afternoon and continue into Wednesday
night. The strongest winds are expected north of Cape Lookout and
especially over the Outer Banks.

The prolonged gusty north to northeast winds will lead to storm surge
inundation of 2 to 4 feet above ground level mainly for the beaches
north of Cape Lookout and adjacent to the southern Pamlico Sound. This
will produce minor to moderate coastal flooding with ocean overwash
likely in vulnerable spots. The very rough surf will continue the
threat of life threatening rip currents as well as beach erosion along
all beaches.

Heaviest rainfall will be confined to mainly the immediate coast with
amounts of 1 to 3 inches. This should produce only minor flooding of
low lying areas.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* surge:
protect against life-threatening surge having possible significant
impacts across southern and western portions of the Pamlico Sound,
the middle and southern portion of The Alligator river, and along the
south side of the Neuse River in Carteret and southern Craven counties.
Oceanside storm surge impacts are expected across Dare County north
of Cape Hatteras. Potential impacts in this area include:
    - areas of inundation with storm surge flooding accentuated by
      waves. Damage to several buildings, mainly near the coast.
    - Sections of near-shore escape routes and secondary roads become
      weakened or washed out, especially in usually vulnerable low
      spots.
    - Major beach erosion with heavy surf breaching dunes. Strong and
      numerous rip currents.
    - Moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, and piers.
      Several small craft broken away from moorings, especially in
      unprotected anchorages.

Also, protect against locally hazardous surge having possible limited
impacts across the Scuppernong river in Tyrrell County, the Pungo and
Pamlico rivers, and the areas adjacent to Bogue Sound.

Elsewhere across eastern North Carolina, little to no impact is
anticipated.

* Wind:
protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across
eastern North Carolina. Potential impacts include:
    - damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored
      Mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about.
    - Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or
      uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are
      shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - A few roads impassable from debris, particularly within urban
      or heavily wooded places. Hazardous driving conditions on
      bridges and other elevated roadways.
    - Scattered power and communications outages.

* Flooding rain:
protect against locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts across across Outer Banks Dare and Outer Banks Hyde
counties. Potential impacts include:
    - localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations.
    - Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter currents.
      Small streams, creeks, canals, and ditches may become swollen
      and overflow in spots.
    - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in usually
      vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding of water
      occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
      areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds become
      near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief Road and bridge
      closures.

Elsewhere across eastern North Carolina, little to no impact is
anticipated.

* Other coastal hazards:
large surf will bring a high threat of life threatening rip currents,
dangerous shore break and beach erosion across all eastern North Carolina
beaches. It is recommended that you stay out of the surf zone.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

* evacuations:
for those under evacuation orders, leave as
soon as practical with a destination in mind. Gas up your vehicle
well ahead of time. Be sure that you take all essential materials
from your emergency supplies kit. Let others know where you are going
and when you intend to arrive.

If you are exceptionally vulnerable to wind or
water hazards from tropical systems, consider voluntary evacuation,
especially if being officially recommended. Relocate to a
predetermined shelter or safe destination.

* Other preparedness information:
now is the time to bring to completion all preparations to protect
life and property in accordance with your emergency plan.

Outside preparations should be wrapped up as soon as possible before
weather conditions completely deteriorate. Any remaining evacuations
and relocations should be expedited before the onset of tropical
storm force wind.

Keep cell phones well charged and handy. Also, cell phone chargers
for automobiles can be helpful after the storm. Locate your chargers
and keep them with your cell phone.

If you are a visitor and still in the area, listen for the name of
the city or town in which you are staying within local news updates.
Be sure you know the name of the County or Parish in which it
resides. Pay attention for instructions from local authorities.

Closely monitor NOAA Weather Radio or other local news outlets for
official storm information. Be ready to adapt to possible changes to
the forecast.

Service in Newport/Morehead City NC around 5 PM EDT, or sooner if
conditions warrant.

... Tropical storm watch remains in effect...

* locations affected
    - Jacksonville
    - Richlands
    - North Topsail Beach

* wind
    - latest local forecast: below tropical storm force wind
        - peak wind forecast: 10-20 mph with gusts to 30 mph

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - the wind threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency planning should include a reasonable threat for
          tropical storm force wind of 39 to 57 mph.
        - To be safe, prepare for the potential of limited wind
          impacts. Efforts should now be underway to secure all
          properties.
        - Hazardous wind is possible. Failure to adequately shelter
          may result in serious injury.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored
          Mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about.
        - Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or
          uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees
          are shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown
          over.
        - A few roads impassable from debris, particularly within
          urban or heavily wooded places. Hazardous driving
          conditions on bridges and other elevated roadways.
        - Scattered power and communications outages.

* Storm surge
    - no storm surge inundation forecast

    - current threat to life and property: none
        - the storm surge threat has remained nearly steady from the

          for storm surge flooding. The ground will remain largely
          unflooded from surge water or only have spots minimally
          affected by surge water encroachment. Surf conditions may
          still be rough with some beach erosion. Stronger than
          normal rip currents may also be present.
        - Little to no preparations needed to guard against storm
          surge flooding at this time.
        - Ensure readiness for the next storm surge event.
