Hurricane Earl Forces East Coast Evacuations

Batten down the hatches! It may not be as large as they thought, but Hurricane Earl could still pack quite a punch on the East Coast in the coming days.

Every time I hear mention of Hurricane Earl, all I can think of is the song by the Dixie Chicks a decade ago 🙂

From CNN:

Mandatory evacuation orders were issued for Ocracoke Island, on North Carolina’s Outer Banks, and Cape Lookout National Seashore.

Dare County Emergency Management officials issued a mandatory evacuation order Wednesday for all visitors to Hatteras Island, effective immediately.

Earl lost some of its punch early Wednesday and was downgraded to a Category 3 storm, with maximum sustained winds near 125 mph (200 kph). However, it was still a major hurricane, and forecasters said more fluctuations in intensity were possible in the next 48 hours. Tracking maps show Earl approaching the North Carolina coast early Friday as a Category 3 storm.

    I thought of the Chick’s Earl as well when I first heard the storm’s name.

    No matter what’s on the Radar, it seems that The Carolinas ALWAYS get hit, even when other nearby States don’t at all, or very slightly. It’s like they’re a Magnet for Storms, a “regular Customer”. I would never want to live there.

    A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I do believe that you should write more about
    this topic, it might not be a taboo matter but generally people do not speak
    about these subjects. To the next! Cheers!!
