...TROPICAL STORM WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT...
...STORM SURGE WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT...

* LOCATIONS AFFECTED
    - Aydlett
    - Currituck

* WIND
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: Equivalent Tropical Storm force wind
        - Peak Wind Forecast: 30-40 mph with gusts to 50 mph
        - Window for Tropical Storm force winds: Thursday afternoon
          until Saturday morning

    - POTENTIAL THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: Potential for wind 58 to
      73 mph
        - The wind threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - PLAN: Plan for dangerous wind of equivalent strong tropical
          storm force due to possible forecast changes in track,
          size, or intensity.
        - PREPARE: Remaining efforts to protect life and property
          should be completed as soon as possible. Prepare for
          significant wind damage.
        - ACT: Move to safe shelter before the wind becomes hazardous.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Significant
        - Some damage to roofing and siding, along with damage to
          porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. Some buildings
          experience window, door, and garage door failures. Mobile
          homes damaged, some destroyed, especially if poorly
          anchored or exposed to wind. Unsecured lightweight objects
          become dangerous projectiles.
        - Large trees snapped or uprooted, especially in areas where
          soils are saturated. Some roadway signs will be blown over.
        - Some roads will be impassable from large debris including
          bridges, causeways, and access routes.
        - Scattered to widespread power and communications outages.

* STORM SURGE
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: Localized storm surge possible
        - Peak Storm Surge Inundation: The potential for up to 2 feet
          above ground somewhere within surge prone areas
        - Window of concern: Thursday morning until early Saturday
          evening

    - POTENTIAL THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: Potential for storm
      surge flooding greater than 1 foot above ground
        - The storm surge threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - PLAN: Plan for storm surge flooding greater than 1 foot
          above ground.
        - PREPARE: Complete preparations for storm surge flooding,
          especially in low-lying vulnerable areas, before conditions
          become unsafe.
        - ACT: Leave immediately if evacuation orders are given for
          your area.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Limited
        - Widespread storm surge flooding of vulnerable areas will
          result in an elevated threat of property damage to homes
          and businesses near the waterfront and shoreline.
        - Sections of low-lying vulnerable roads, parking lots and
          property will likely become flooded. Driving conditions
          could become dangerous in places where flooding covers the
          road.
        - Moderate to severe beach erosion is likely, including heavy
          surf possibly breaching dunes, especially in vulnerable
          locations. Strong and dangerous rip currents are likely.
        - Minor to moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, and
          piers is likely. A few small craft broken away from
          moorings.

* FLOODING RAIN
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST:
        - Peak Rainfall Amounts: 4-8 inches, with locally higher
          amounts

    - POTENTIAL THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: Potential for moderate
      flooding rain
        - The flooding rain threat has remained nearly steady from
          the previous assessment.
        - PLAN: Emergency plans should include the potential for
          moderate flooding from heavy rain. Evacuations and rescues
          are possible.
        - PREPARE: Consider protective actions if you are in an area
          vulnerable to flooding.
        - ACT: Heed any flood watches and warnings. Failure to take
          action may result in serious injury or loss of life.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Significant
        - Flooding from heavy rainfall may prompt evacuations and
          rescues
        - Rivers and tributaries may quickly become swollen, with
          swift currents, and overspill their banks. Small streams,
          creeks, and ditches overflow.
        - Flood waters can enter some structures and/or weaken
          foundations. Some areas may experience 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 are expected.

* 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
        - A few tornadoes are expected. As a result, execution of
          emergency plans could be hindered in affected areas.
        - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with
          power and communications disruptions.
        - Roofs peeled off some buildings. A few chimneys toppled and
          mobile homes pushed off foundations or overturned. Large
          tree tops and branches snapped off, with some trees knocked
          over. A few vehicles blown off roads.

...STORM SURGE WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT...
...TROPICAL STORM WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT...

* LOCATIONS AFFECTED
    - Windsor

* WIND
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: Equivalent Tropical Storm force wind
        - Peak Wind Forecast: 30-40 mph with gusts to 55 mph
        - Window for Tropical Storm force winds: Thursday afternoon
          until Saturday morning

    - POTENTIAL THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: Potential for wind 58 to
      73 mph
        - The wind threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - PLAN: Plan for dangerous wind of equivalent strong tropical
          storm force due to possible forecast changes in track,
          size, or intensity.
        - PREPARE: Remaining efforts to protect life and property
          should be completed as soon as possible. Prepare for
          significant wind damage.
        - ACT: Move to safe shelter before the wind becomes hazardous.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Significant
        - Some damage to roofing and siding, along with damage to
          porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. Some buildings
          experience window, door, and garage door failures. Mobile
          homes damaged, some destroyed, especially if poorly
          anchored or exposed to wind. Unsecured lightweight objects
          become dangerous projectiles.
        - Large trees snapped or uprooted, especially in areas where
          soils are saturated. Some roadway signs will be blown over.
        - Some roads will be impassable from large debris including
          bridges, causeways, and access routes.
        - Scattered to widespread power and communications outages.

* STORM SURGE
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: Life-threatening storm surge possible
        - Peak Storm Surge Inundation: The potential for 3-5 feet
          above ground somewhere within surge prone areas
        - Window of concern: Begins early this afternoon

    - POTENTIAL THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: Potential for storm
      surge flooding greater than 3 feet above ground
        - The storm surge threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - PLAN: Plan for life-threatening storm surge flooding of
          greater than 3 feet above ground.
        - PREPARE: Evacuation efforts and flood preparations should
          soon be brought to completion before 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: Significant
        - Severe storm surge flooding will likely cause inundation of
          numerous roads and buildings, resulting in a threat to life
          and property. Flooding will likely extend inland from the
          waterfront and shoreline flooding homes, businesses and
          isolating some neighborhoods. Large breaking waves will
          result in additional damage near the shoreline.
        - Numerous roads flooded or washed out.
        - Major beach erosion with heavy surf breaching some dunes.
        - Severe damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, and piers is
          expected. Small craft broken away from moorings, especially
          in unprotected marinas and docks.

* FLOODING RAIN
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST:
        - Peak Rainfall Amounts: 6-10 inches, with locally higher
          amounts

    - POTENTIAL THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: Potential for moderate
      flooding rain
        - The flooding rain threat has remained nearly steady from
          the previous assessment.
        - PLAN: Emergency plans should include the potential for
          moderate flooding from heavy rain. Evacuations and rescues
          are possible.
        - PREPARE: Consider protective actions if you are in an area
          vulnerable to flooding.
        - ACT: Heed any flood watches and warnings. Failure to take
          action may result in serious injury or loss of life.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Significant
        - Flooding from heavy rainfall may prompt evacuations and
          rescues
        - Rivers and tributaries may quickly become swollen, with
          swift currents, and overspill their banks. Small streams,
          creeks, and ditches overflow.
        - Flood waters can enter some structures and/or weaken
          foundations. Some areas may experience 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 are expected.

* 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
        - A few tornadoes are expected. As a result, execution of
          emergency plans could be hindered in affected areas.
        - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with
          power and communications disruptions.
        - Roofs peeled off some buildings. A few chimneys toppled and
          mobile homes pushed off foundations or overturned. Large
          tree tops and branches snapped off, with some trees knocked
          over. A few vehicles blown off roads.
