          until Saturday evening

    - POTENTIAL THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: Potential for wind
      greater than 110 mph
        - The wind threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - PLAN: Plan for extreme wind of equivalent CAT 3 hurricane
          force or higher due to possible forecast changes in track,
          size, or intensity.
        - PREPARE: Remaining efforts to protect life and property
          should be urgently completed. Prepare for catastrophic wind
          damage.
        - ACT: Move to safe shelter before the wind becomes hazardous.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Devastating to Catastrophic
        - Structural damage to sturdy buildings, some with complete
          roof and wall failures. Complete destruction of mobile
          homes. Damage greatly accentuated by large airborne
          projectiles. Locations may be uninhabitable for weeks or
          months.
        - Numerous large trees snapped or uprooted along with fences
          and roadway signs blown over.
        - Many roads impassable from large debris, and more within
          urban or heavily wooded places. Many bridges, causeways,
          and access routes impassable.
        - Widespread power and communications outages.

* STORM SURGE
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: Life-threatening and historic storm
      surge possible
        - Peak Storm Surge Inundation: The potential for 9-13 feet
          above ground somewhere within surge prone areas
        - Window of concern: Begins early this evening

    - POTENTIAL THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: Potential for storm
      surge flooding greater than 9 feet above ground
        - The storm surge threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - PLAN: Plan for extreme life-threatening storm surge
          flooding greater than 9 feet above ground.
        - PREPARE: Evacuation efforts should soon be brought to
          completion before driving conditions become unsafe.
        - ACT: Leave immediately if evacuation orders are given for
          your area to avoid being cut off from emergency services or
          needlessly risk lives.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Devastating to Catastrophic
        - Widespread deep inundation, with storm surge flooding
          greatly accentuated by powerful battering waves. Structural
          damage to buildings, with many washing away. Damage greatly
          compounded from considerable floating debris. Locations may
          be uninhabitable for an extended period.
        - Near-shore escape routes and secondary roads washed out or
          severely flooded. Flood control systems and barriers may
          become stressed.
        - Extreme beach erosion. New shoreline cuts possible.
        - Massive damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, and piers.
          Numerous small craft broken away from moorings with many
          lifted onshore and stranded.

* FLOODING RAIN
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: Flash Flood Watch is in effect
        - Peak Rainfall Amounts: Additional 18-24 inches, with
          locally higher amounts

    - POTENTIAL THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: Potential for extreme
      flooding rain
        - The flooding rain threat has remained nearly steady from
          the previous assessment.
        - PLAN: Emergency plans should include the potential for
          extreme flooding from heavy rain. Evacuations and rescues
          are likely.
        - PREPARE: Urgently consider protective actions from extreme
          and widespread rainfall flooding.
        - ACT: Heed any flood watches and warnings. Failure to take
          action will likely result in serious injury or loss of life.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Devastating to Catastrophic
        - Extreme rainfall flooding may prompt numerous evacuations
          and rescues.
        - Rivers and tributaries may overwhelmingly overflow their
          banks in many places with deep moving water. Small streams,
          creeks, canals, and ditches may become raging rivers. Flood
          control systems and barriers may become stressed.
        - Flood waters can enter numerous structures within multiple
          communities, some structures becoming uninhabitable or
          washed away. Numerous places where flood waters may cover
          escape routes. Streets and parking lots become rivers of
          raging water with underpasses submerged. Driving conditions
          become very dangerous. Numerous road and bridge closures
          with some weakened or washed out.

* TORNADO
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST:
        - Situation is somewhat favorable for tornadoes

    - POTENTIAL THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: Potential for a few
      tornadoes
        - The tornado threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - PLAN: Emergency plans should include the potential for a
          few tornadoes.
        - PREPARE: If your shelter is particularly vulnerable to
          tornadoes, prepare to relocate to safe shelter before
          hazardous weather arrives.
        - ACT: If a tornado warning is issued, be ready to shelter
          quickly.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Limited
        - 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.

          tornadoes, prepare to relocate to safe shelter before
          hazardous weather arrives.
        - ACT: If a tornado warning is issued, be ready to shelter
          quickly.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Limited
        - 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.

          should be urgently completed. Prepare for catastrophic wind
          damage.
        - ACT: Move to safe shelter before the wind becomes hazardous.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Devastating to Catastrophic
        - Structural damage can be expected to sturdy buildings, with
          some suffering severe or total destruction. Complete
          destruction of mobile homes and other poorly constructed
          buildings is likely. Damage greatly enhanced by large
          projectiles. Locations may be uninhabitable for a
          significant period of time.
        - Numerous large trees may be snapped or uprooted, along with
          fences and roadway signs gone.
        - Many roads will become unsafe and impassable from large
          debris. Many bridges, causeways, and other elevated
          roadways will become impassable.
        - Extensive power and communications outages can be expected.
        - Many vessels will break free from their moorings.

* STORM SURGE
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: Life-threatening storm surge possible
        - Peak Storm Surge Inundation: The potential for 7-11 feet
          above ground somewhere within surge prone areas
        - Window of concern: Begins late this morning

        - ACT: Leave immediately if evacuation orders are given for
          your area to avoid being cut off from emergency services or
          needlessly risk lives.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Devastating to Catastrophic
        - Dangerous widespread and deep storm surge inundation. The
          surge will affect homes close to tidal creeks and waterways
          farther inland than what people are accustomed to. The
          surge combined with battering waves will damage many homes
          along the barrier islands. Structural damage to buildings
          is likely in many areas as a result, with many on the
          barrier islands washing away. The damage will be greatly
          compounded from a considerable amount of floating debris.
          Locations may become uninhabitable for an extended period.
        - Delivery of drinking water and sewer services may be lost
          in coastal communities. Surge waters will contain hazardous
          materials.
        - Coastal roads will become severely flooded and may be
          washed out completely.
        - Extreme beach erosion with significant loss of dunes and
          the potential for new inlets carved into some of the
          barrier islands. A large amount of sand will be deposited
          onto the barrier islands blocking roadways.Massive damage
          to marinas, docks, boardwalks, and piers is expected. Small
          craft will break away from moorings with many lifted
          onshore and stranded inland.Navigation will be difficult,
          especially near inlets and waterways, as navigational aids
          may be off station or missing. Debris in waterways and
          other navigable channels will make navigation hazardous.

* FLOODING RAIN
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: Flash Flood Watch is in effect

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Devastating to Catastrophic
        - Extreme flooding from rainfall may prompt numerous
          evacuations and rescues.
        - Rivers and streams may overwhelmingly overflow their banks
          with deep moving water. Creeks and ditches will become
          severely flooded and contain strong currents.
        - Flood waters may enter numerous structures, and some may
          become uninhabitable or washed away. Road scours or
          complete road failure is likely in many locations, along
          with the potential for sinkholes. Many streets and parking
          lots will flood, and may be impacted by swift, flowing
          water. Numerous road and low-lying bridge closures are
          likely with some weakened or washed away. Driving
          conditions will be very dangerous.
        - The delivery of drinking water and sewer services may be
          interrupted. Flood waters may be polluted and contain
          hazardous materials.

* TORNADO

        - 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.

        - Minor damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, and piers is
          possible. A few small craft may break away from moorings if
          not properly secured.
        - Navigation may be difficult near inlets and waterways, as
          navigational aids may be off station or missing.

* FLOODING RAIN
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: Flash Flood Watch is in effect
        - Peak Rainfall Amounts: Additional More than two feet

    - POTENTIAL THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: Potential for extreme
      flooding rain
        - The flooding rain threat has increased from the previous
          assessment.
        - PLAN: Emergency plans should include the potential for
          extreme flooding from heavy rain. Evacuations and rescues
          are likely.
        - PREPARE: Urgently consider protective actions from extreme
          and widespread rainfall flooding.
        - ACT: Heed any flood watches and warnings. Failure to take
          action will likely result in serious injury or loss of life.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Devastating to Catastrophic
        - Extreme flooding from rainfall may prompt numerous
          evacuations and rescues.
        - Rivers and streams may overwhelmingly overflow their banks
          with deep moving water. Creeks and ditches will become
          severely flooded and contain strong currents.
        - Flood waters may enter numerous structures, and some may
          become uninhabitable or washed away. Road scours or
          complete road failure is likely in many locations, along
          with the potential for sinkholes. Many streets and parking
          lots will flood, and may be impacted by swift, flowing
          water. Numerous road and low-lying bridge closures are
          likely with some weakened or washed away. Driving
          conditions will be very dangerous.
        - The delivery of drinking water and sewer services may be
          interrupted. Flood waters may be polluted and contain
          hazardous materials.

* TORNADO
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST:
        - Situation is somewhat favorable for tornadoes

    - POTENTIAL THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: Potential for a few
      tornadoes
        - The tornado threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - PLAN: Emergency plans should include the potential for a
          few tornadoes.
        - PREPARE: If your shelter is particularly vulnerable to
          tornadoes, prepare to relocate to safe shelter before
          hazardous weather arrives.
        - ACT: If a tornado warning is issued, be ready to shelter
          quickly.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Limited
        - 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.

        - The storm surge threat has increased from the previous
          assessment.
        - PLAN: Plan for life-threatening storm surge flooding of
          greater than 6 feet above ground.
        - PREPARE: Evacuation efforts should soon be brought to
          completion before driving conditions become unsafe.
        - ACT: Leave immediately if evacuation orders are given for
          your area to avoid being cut off from emergency services or
          needlessly risk lives.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Extensive
        - Large areas of deep inundation with storm surge flooding
          enhanced by battering waves. Structural damage to buildings
          is likely, with several potentially washing away. Damage
          will be compounded by floating debris. Some locations may
          become uninhabitable for an extended period.
        - Inundation is likely to impact vulnerable homes along tidal
          creeks and waterways farther inland.
        - Drinking water and sewer services will likely become
          impacted by the storm surge. Surge waters will contain
          hazardous materials.
        - Large sections of coastal roads will become flooded, or
          wash-out altogether.
        - Severe beach erosion is expected with significant dune
          loss. Sands from displaced dunes will likely deposit onto
          the barrier island roads.
        - Major damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, and piers is
          possible. Many small craft broken away from moorings,
          especially in unprotected anchorages with some lifted
          onshore and stranded inland.
        - Navigation may be difficult, especially near inlets and
          waterways, as some navigational aids may be off station or
          missing. Debris is possible in the waterways and other
          navigable channels.
