erosion are also expected. Rain will taper off on Saturday but coastal 
flooding issues may linger.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS
-----------------

* FLOODING RAIN:
Protect against life-threatening rainfall flooding having possible
extensive impacts across Northeast South Carolina and Southeast North
Carolina. Potential impacts include:
- Major flooding from rainfall may prompt evacuations and 
numerous rescues.
- Rivers and streams may rapidly overflow their banks in multiple 
places. Creeks and ditches will flood and may contain strong 
currents.
- Flood waters may enter many structures, and some may become 
uninhabitable. Some road scours or complete road failures will 
be possible, along with the potential for sinkholes. Many 
streets and parking lots may flood, and may be impacted by 
flowing water. Many road and low-lying bridge closures are 
possible with some weakened or washed away. Driving conditions 
will be dangerous.The delivery of drinking water and sewer 
services may be interrupted. Flood waters may be polluted and 
contain hazardous materials.

Protect against dangerous rainfall flooding having possible 
significant impacts across the area.

* WIND:
Protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across 
southeast North Carolina and northeast South Carolina. Potential 
impacts include:
- Damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored 
mobile homes is possible. Unsecured lightweight objects may be 
blown about.
- Some large limbs may break from trees. A few shallow rooted or 
weak trees may snap or be knocked down. Some fences and roadway 
signs damaged.
- A few roads may become impassable due to debris, particularly 
within urban or heavily wooded locations. Hazardous driving 
conditions are possible, especially for high profile vehicles 
on bridges and other elevated roadways.
- Scattered power and communications outages are possible.

* SURGE:
Protect against life-threatening surge having possible significant
impacts across coastal South Carolina. Potential impacts in this area 
include:
- Areas of storm surge inundation enhanced by breaking waves are 
possible along the barrier islands. Damage to several buildings 
is possible, mainly near the coast.
- Sections of near-shore roads may become weakened or washed out, 
especially in vulnerable low-lying areas.
- Delivery of drinking water and sewer services may be 
interrupted.
- Major beach erosion is possible with heavy surf and elevated 
water levels impacting or breaching the dunes.
- Moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, and piers. 
Several small craft will break away from moorings, especially 
in unprotected anchorages.
- Navigation may be difficult near inlets and waterways, as 
navigational aids may be off station or missing.

Also, protect against locally hazardous surge having possible limited 
impacts across coastal North Carolina.

* TORNADOES:
Protect against a tornado event having possible limited impacts 
across southeast North Carolina and northeast South Carolina. 
Potential impacts include:
- The occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution 
of emergency plans during tropical events.
- A few places may experience tornado damage, along with power 
and communications disruptions.
- Tornadoes can cause damage to trees, vehicles, boats, and 
buildings. Unsecured mobile homes and poorly constructed 
structures are particularly vulnerable.

HURRICANE LOCAL STATEMENT
Expires: 09/29/2022 05:09 AM
Location: East Carteret, NC

This product covers Eastern North Carolina

**Hurricane Ian is forecast to bring impacts to Eastern North 
Carolina as early as Thursday and lasting into the weekend.** 

NEW INFORMATION
---------------

* CHANGES TO WATCHES AND WARNINGS:
- A Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for Coastal Onslow, East 
Carteret, and West Carteret

* CURRENT WATCHES AND WARNINGS:
- This is the initial issuance of watches. 

* STORM INFORMATION:
- About 620 miles south-southwest of Morehead City NC or about 
610 miles south-southwest of Jacksonville NC
- 26.9N 82.0W
- Storm Intensity 140 mph
- Movement North-northeast or 20 degrees at 8 mph

SITUATION OVERVIEW
------------------

Hurricane Ian will continue to cross the Florida peninsula today
and reemerge over the Western Atlantic late Thursday. Friday, Ian will
weaken as it approaches the southeast coast and move inland west of
the forecast area. Ian will bring coastal and sound flooding impacts
as well as extended periods of heavy rain and gusty winds approaching
tropical storm force.

Heavy rain bands will lead to 5 to 8 inches of rain which could bring
a threat of localized flooding, especially in low-lying and poor
drainage areas. 1 to 3 feet of storm surge inundation is expected
from Surf City to Cape Lookout and 1 to 3 feet of inundation
for areas adjacent to Southern Pamlico Sound. Wind gusts to tropical
storm force could lead to some downed trees and isolated power
outages. Tornadoes may result in areas of locally enhanced damage. 

Dangerous marine conditions are expected for all offshore waters and
the Pamlico Sound, with strong winds and seas building to create
treacherous conditions for mariners. The threat for stronger and more
frequent rip currents will also exist along area beaches.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS
-----------------

* FLOODING RAIN:
Prepare for dangerous rainfall flooding having possible significant 
impacts across much of Eastern North Carolina. Potential impacts 
include:
- Moderate rainfall flooding may prompt several evacuations and 
rescues.
- Rivers and tributaries may quickly become swollen with swifter 
currents and overspill their banks in a few places, especially 
in usually vulnerable spots. Small streams, creeks, canals, and 
ditches overflow.
- Flood waters can enter some structures or weaken foundations. 
Several places may experience expanded areas of rapid 
inundation at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage 
areas. Some streets and parking lots take on moving water as 
storm drains and retention ponds overflow. Driving conditions 
become hazardous. Some road and bridge closures.


* SURGE:
Prepare for locally hazardous surge having possible limited impacts 
from Surf City to Cape Lookout. Potential impacts in this area 
include:
- Localized inundation with storm surge flooding mainly along 
immediate shorelines and in low-lying spots, or in areas 
farther inland near where higher surge waters move ashore.
- Sections of near-shore roads and parking lots become overspread 
with surge water. Driving conditions dangerous in places where 
surge water covers the road.
- Moderate beach erosion. Heavy surf also breaching dunes, mainly 
in usually vulnerable locations. Strong rip currents.
- Minor to locally moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, 
and piers. A few small craft broken away from moorings.

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

* WIND:
Prepare for hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across coastal 
southeast North Carolina. Potential impacts in this area 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.

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

* TORNADOES:
Prepare for a tornado event having possible limited impacts across 
Eastern North Carolina. Potential impacts include:
- The occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution 
of emergency plans during tropical events.
- A few places may experience tornado damage, along with power 
and communications disruptions.
- Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, chimneys 
toppled, mobile homes pushed off foundations or overturned, 
large tree tops and branches snapped off, shallow-rooted trees 
knocked over, moving vehicles blown off roads, and small boats 
pulled from moorings.

* OTHER COASTAL HAZARDS:
Dangerous marine conditions are expected for all offshore waters and 
the Pamlico Sound, with strong winds and seas building to create 
treacherous conditions for mariners. The threat for stronger and 
more frequent rip currents will also exist along area beaches.
----------------------------------

* EVACUATIONS:
WATCH/WARNING PHASE - Listen to local official for recommended 
preparedness actions, including possible evacuation. If ordered to 
evacuate, do so immediately. 


* OTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION:
Now is the time to check your emergency plan and emergency supplies 
kit and take necessary actions to protect your family and secure your 
home or business.

When making safety and preparedness decisions, do not focus on the 
exact forecast track since hazards such as flooding rain, damaging 
wind gusts, storm surge, and tornadoes extend well away from the 
center of the storm. 

If you live in a place particularly vulnerable to flooding, such as 
near the ocean or a large inland lake, in a low-lying or poor 
drainage area, in a valley, or near an already swollen river, plan to 
move to safe shelter on higher ground.

There is a threat from tornadoes with this storm. Have multiple ways 
to receive Tornado Warnings. Be ready to shelter quickly.

SITUATION OVERVIEW
------------------

Hurricane Ian will slowly move north into the Carolinas later this
week, with the timeframe of greatest impacts being Thursday night
through Friday night. Gusty winds well ahead of the storm will start 
on Thursday, possibly reaching Tropical Storm force. These winds will 
increase slightly on Friday. Heavy rain, coastal flooding, and beach 
erosion are also expected. Rain will taper off on Saturday but coastal 
flooding issues may linger.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS
-----------------

* FLOODING RAIN:
Protect against life-threatening rainfall flooding having possible
extensive impacts across Northeast South Carolina and Southeast North
Carolina. Potential impacts include:
- Major flooding from rainfall may prompt evacuations and 
numerous rescues.
- Rivers and streams may rapidly overflow their banks in multiple 
places. Creeks and ditches will flood and may contain strong 
currents.
- Flood waters may enter many structures, and some may become 
uninhabitable. Some road scours or complete road failures will 
be possible, along with the potential for sinkholes. Many 
streets and parking lots may flood, and may be impacted by 
flowing water. Many road and low-lying bridge closures are 
possible with some weakened or washed away. Driving conditions 
will be dangerous.The delivery of drinking water and sewer 
services may be interrupted. Flood waters may be polluted and 
contain hazardous materials.

Protect against dangerous rainfall flooding having possible 
significant impacts across the area.

* WIND:
Protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across 
southeast North Carolina and northeast South Carolina. Potential 
impacts include:
- Damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored 
mobile homes is possible. Unsecured lightweight objects may be 
blown about.
- Some large limbs may break from trees. A few shallow rooted or 
weak trees may snap or be knocked down. Some fences and roadway 
signs damaged.
- A few roads may become impassable due to debris, particularly 
within urban or heavily wooded locations. Hazardous driving 
conditions are possible, especially for high profile vehicles 
on bridges and other elevated roadways.
- Scattered power and communications outages are possible.

* SURGE:
Protect against life-threatening surge having possible significant
impacts across coastal South Carolina. Potential impacts in this area 
include:
- Areas of storm surge inundation enhanced by breaking waves are 
possible along the barrier islands. Damage to several buildings 
is possible, mainly near the coast.
- Sections of near-shore roads may become weakened or washed out, 
especially in vulnerable low-lying areas.
- Delivery of drinking water and sewer services may be 
interrupted.
- Major beach erosion is possible with heavy surf and elevated 
water levels impacting or breaching the dunes.
- Moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, and piers. 
Several small craft will break away from moorings, especially 
in unprotected anchorages.
- Navigation may be difficult near inlets and waterways, as 
navigational aids may be off station or missing.

Also, protect against locally hazardous surge having possible limited 
impacts across coastal North Carolina.

* TORNADOES:
Protect against a tornado event having possible limited impacts 
across southeast North Carolina and northeast South Carolina. 
Potential impacts include:
- The occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution 
of emergency plans during tropical events.
- A few places may experience tornado damage, along with power 
and communications disruptions.
- Tornadoes can cause damage to trees, vehicles, boats, and 
buildings. Unsecured mobile homes and poorly constructed 
structures are particularly vulnerable.
