Hurricane conditions are expected within the hurricane warning area in South and North Carolina this evening through tonight, with tropical storm conditions beginning later today. Widespread tropical-storm-conditions are expected in the tropical storm warning area from coastal North Carolina to the mid-Atlantic states tonight and Tuesday, with wind gusts to hurricane force possible. These winds could cause tree damage and power outages. Tropical storm conditions are expected to reach southern New England late Tuesday and are possible along the northern New England coast Tuesday night and early Wednesday.

The combination of a dangerous storm surge and the tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded b rising waters moving inland from the shoreline. The water coul reach the following heights above ground somewhere in the indicated areas if the peak surge occurs at the time of high tide...
- South Santee River SC to Cape Fear NC...3-5 ft
- Edisto Beach SC to South Santee River SC...2-4 ft
- Cape Fear NC to the North Carolina/Virginia border including
Pamlico Sound, Albemarle Sound, Neuse and Pamlico Rivers...2-4 ft
- Altamaha Sound GA to Edisto Beach SC...1-3 ft
North of the North Carolina/Virginia border to Martha's - Vineyard including the Chesapeake Bay, the Tidal Potomac River, and Delaware Bay...1-3 ft

At 11 a.m. EDT, the center of Tropical Storm Isaias was located about 90 miles (145 km) east-southeast of Brunswick, Ga., and about 220 miles (350 km) south-southwest of Myrtle Beach, S. Carorolina. It's moving toward the north near 13 mph (20 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue today. A turn toward the north-northeast along with an increase in forward speed is expected by this late afternoon or early evening, followed by a faster
northeastward motion tonight and Tuesday. On the forecast track, the center of Isaias will pass well east of the Georgia coast through this afternoon. The center of Isaias will then approach the coasts of northeastern South Carolina and southern North Carolina within the hurricane warning area this evening. The center will then move inland over eastern North Carolina tonight, and move along the coast of the mid-Atlantic states on Tuesday and into the northeastern United States Tuesday night.

Data from the reconnaissance aircraft and NOAA Doppler weather radars indicate that maximum sustained winds remain near 70 mph (110 km/h) with higher gusts. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 125 miles (205 km) from the center. Some strengthening is forecast this afternoon, and Isaias is expected to regain hurricane strength just before it reaches the coast of northeastern South Carolina or southern North Carolina tonight. Only slow weakening is anticipated after Isaias makes landfall in the Carolinas and moves across the U.S. mid-Atlantic region tonight and Tuesday.

Heavy rainfall from Isaias will result in flash and urban flooding, some of which may be significant in the eastern Carolinas and the mid-Atlantic, through Tuesday night near the path of Isaias up the East Coast of the United States. Widespread minor to moderate river flooding is possible across portions of the Carolinas and the mid-Atlantic. Additionally, quick-responding rivers in the southern
Appalachians and Northeast will be susceptible to minor river flooding.

A few tornadoes will be possible over coastal South Carolina beginning this evening, spreading across eastern North Carolina tonight into Tuesday morning. A couple tornadoes will be possible on Tuesday from eastern Virginia northeastward into southern New England.

The next complete advisory will be issued by NHC at 5 p.m. EDT with an intermediate advisory at 2 p.m. EDT - www.hurricanes.gov

Do you know the difference between a tropical storm and a hurricane? What about a watch and a warning? Tropical storms are tropical cyclones that have winds ranging from 39-73 miles per hour and turn into hurricanes when wind speeds are greater than 74 mph. Watches are placed when a storm poses a possible threat to an area within 48 hours and a warning is placed when the storm is expected to impact an area within 36 hours. Don’t wait for a tropical storm or hurricane to prepare. Have a plan in place before the storm arrives. For more information on planning, visit Ready Marine Corps.

Congratulations to Richlands Volunteer Fire Department former member Will Jackson on promotion to Deputy Chief at Indian Beach/Salter Path Fire Department.

We would like to Congratulate Captain William Jackson on his recent promotion to Deputy Chief!

Chief Jackson was born at Onslow Memorial Hospital to Captain Rob Jackson (JFD) and Loretta Jackson. Chief grew up in Richlands NC with his brother Ben where he played football, baseball, and basketball.

Chief started his fire service career at Richlands Volunteer Fire Department in 2010 as a junior fireman. Graduating in 2011, Chief Jackson attended the Wilson Fire Academy. Chief began his service with the Town of Indian Beach and Salter Path in 2015. He was promoted to Captain in 2017. While serving in his various roles, Chief has created an ocean rescue program, revised the training division, secured the SAFER grant which lead to the implementation of Advanced Life Support in our area, and many other things.

Chief Jackson officially began his new position today.

The entire Fire Department stands behind Chief Jackson and we are very excited for his future with the Town of Indian Beach.

As always if you need us, we will be coming...quickly!

It is that time of year again - time to start planning for Hurricane Season, June 1st is just around the corner. Onslow has started preparation by evaluating how we will need to adjust operations should a hurricane head this way during our current pandemic conditions.

Are you prepared? We will share some info throughout the week to try and help. For more information throughout the week visit: https://www.weather.gov/rah/2020nchpw

The first thing you need to do is find out if you live in a storm surge hurricane evacuation zone or if you’re in a home that would be unsafe during a hurricane. If you are, figure out where you’d go and how you’d get there if told to evacuate. You do not need to travel hundreds of miles. Identify someone, perhaps a friend or relative who doesn’t live in a zone or unsafe home, and work it out with them to use their home as your evacuation destination. If you don’t live in an evacuation zone, identify someone who does, and plan to be their inland evacuation destination. Be sure to account for your pets, as most local shelters do not permit them. Finally, be sure to put the plan in writing for you and those you care
about.

We now know that the following post is also directed towards Richlands Volunteer Fire Department. Thank you Richlands Volunteer Fire Department. On Tuesday night my family's house caught fire. I was at work but my husband was home with our 8 y.o. son. They got out of the house safely with the dog and my husband called 911. Soon after from all directions help started arriving. We are not sure exactly how many departments showed up, but showed up they did. And then spent the next little bit fighting to save our house. It is really an amazing feeling knowing that you can dial 3 numbers and total strangers will come and put their lives on the line to help you. And ask nothing in return. We want to thank everyone that showed up from the bottom of our hearts. It is truly reassuring knowing that this community has the people that they do volunteering the way they do. So thank you again.
