7 a.m. update: Hurricane Dorian is bringing lots of rain, heavy winds to the region.
Oh team coverage continues we, take you to Atlantic, Beach where Richard, Devane is live Richard. We certainly see it's it's wet out there maybe a little bit of wind but tell us about conditions, out there. Yeah. We're beginning to actually, see a little bit more as more, daylight coming we've been walking, around with our flashlights, trying to be very, safe, Ashley, Dan, we can tell you that basically we see a lot of tree. Damage from just standing, here we can tell you that the beaches, without power at least in the area that we're standing right now there is a lot of debris I see, a tree down right over on my shoulder right over my other shoulder there's some siding that has been ripped off of a building we, do know that there's a boat docking area right next to us where a lot of boats have been dry docked some, of those we've seen some siding fly, off of that area so there is a lot of damage of course as we get more daylight and as people venture out we'll be able to assess the damage more, as, far as people we can tell you the island, is relatively, calm a lot of people had evacuated earlier, in the week when they were told to do so we've just seen a couple of people out and about late, last night but even the group one group that we saw they, had a concrete house so they stayed inside they said they wanted, to ride it out that. Wasn't a smart thing people saying that the authorities, have told us the bit that they did but they say at least they're going to be inside, the house when it comes time for the storm right, now if, things aren't looking a good lot. Less, rain is coming the wind gusts are not as strong but we can tell you at this time we'll, have a better idea of the actual damage when. More daylight, comes that's, the story right here from Atlantic Beach guys, we'll send it back to you all right Richard, Devane thank you about three hours south and Morehead City a hurricane. Durian still moving up the East Coast as a category, 1 hurricane, Craig's, back with an update on its track. 13. News now is in storm mode hurricane, Dorian is finally. Here we've been talking about it all week long it's making its way up the North Carolina coast as we speak now overnight it did weaken, it's now a category 1, storm, and right now there nearly 200, closings those are posted on 13 News now.com all, right we have team coverage from. Virginia, to the Outer Banks Tim, Pantages is in the mobile weather lab you see them on the left of the screen there, they're making their way to Elizabeth, City Ally weather turns in nags head with the latest on there and then Meaghan Shin is in Virginia Beach where evacuations. Are underway we'll, check in with all of them in just a few minutes but first let's, check in with meteorologist, Craig molder with an update on Dorian, all right guys six o'clock updates, still here with Northeast movement, 14, miles per hour maximum, sustained, winds right, around 90, and we have had gusts up around 115, or so so, we are still looking at very powerful, winds especially southern, Outer Banks but the winds increasing, northern. Outer Banks northeastern, North Carolina, and yes here in Hampton Roads as well, we're, going to talk about this, and I want to get into the radar and I'll really break this down but you can see the forecast basically. Bringing that center of circulation right, over Buxton, I believe. That the northwest. Side of this system is going, to move right over Ocracoke, and right overhead or silence so you're gonna see that with the radar how it's tracking along it will move off to the northeast and it will continue, off to the northeast accelerating.
Away From our area big, improvements, coming up later on as we go tonight so much rain over Eastern North Carolina this was never in question we knew there's gonna be a lot of rain there the question we've had was how far would the heavy rain extend, back out to the west across Hampton. Roads and areas to the northwest and we knew there'd be a pretty good cut line we're seeing that a lot of the heaviest rains still offshore kind, of wrapping back to the coast and the winds will increase as, well let, me show you where the eye is this is the center of it you can see Ocracoke basically, right now straddling. That northern. Part of the eye wall, right there that heaviest rain wrapping, around there's your eye and, it's moving towards Buxton so the rain really. Intensifying. Right now at Buxton, but the heavier stuff the more violent part of the storm. The eye is actually coming your way across Ocracoke, right, now and I just put a quick measuring, stick to cape, hatteras here the point about, 20 miles so as this is moving off to the northeast at 14 you figure this area will get very close to that within, the next hour and 15 minutes or so hour and a half somewhere in there it will be right, over there the eye will be and then the backside it'll take another probably, hour and, a half two hours or so, beyond that so we're looking at this coming over this as we were saying for days leading up to it right around 8 o'clock or so that's looking, pretty good, for Hatteras, with that Center maybe a little, bit either side of that but, then it moves off to the Northeast, so across, our area we've got this heavy rain rolling. Towards, the coast and there have been waves of rain continuing, to move in that includes, areas down around nags head very quickly I want to talk winds, we've got sustained, winds right now picking up 20, to 30 miles per hour several, areas around the coast in Hampton. Roads down to the south stronger, sustained winds tropical. Storm force winds sustained. At duck and gusts, we, see those gusts starting to pick up Norfolk with Augusta 38, miles per hour a 37, mile-per-hour gusts, at Oceana langley. At 36, and now we're getting gusts around, 56, at the Coast Guard Air Station and also at duck so winds, picking up this morning and we're going to deal with that major tidal, flooding later this afternoon guys, back to you, all. Right Thank You Craig our team coverage continues in, North Carolina, 13, News now reporter Allie weather tonie's there she, is monitoring, conditions and, NAG said Allie about an hour ago you said wind gusts were the worst you'd seen him what's, it like now. Well. The wind gusts are continuing, to get stronger, and stronger which means hurricane. Durian is definitely, on its way here you can probably hear the wind actually picking up through my microphone, that's how strong these wind gusts are now like. About 30 minutes ago the Sun just started to come up so you can probably barely. See, the ocean I can see it it's very very choppy. Out there. Conditions. Are expected to get worse here as hurricane. During inches closer and closer here, to the Outer Banks now earlier, today this morning about two o'clock this morning we, walked outside we, thought the wind gusts were bad then it's continuing. To get worse I mentioned, this in the last live shot is we see a swimming pool it's actually right to the left of me the. Water. Is just flowing out of the swimming pool it kind of looks like a wave pool that's how strong these winds are pushing the water out now, high tide is not expected, until later. This afternoon so. We're probably going to expect the waves to push up here to the to the balcony so kind of that's what we're seeing right now guys. All. Right Allie Craig molar here I really, appreciate the updates out there can you tell us a little bit about the nature of the wind like have you been seeing the stronger, gusts with bands of rain or have been kind of random what, can you tell us.
Well, We've kind of seen sustained, winds start, they are about maybe 4 5 10 minutes and then when, it seems like it's starting to calm down that's when the rain actually starts. To come in then the rain stops the wind, kind of dies, down and then it picks back up and, maybe 5 10 minutes after that alright, great information, there Allie we want you to stay safe and we appreciate you taking the time. Allie. And photojournalist. Stephen laws have been on the Outer Banks all week long bringing, you coverage we certainly, appreciate that update from them and emergency, managers in the, Tar Heel State say it's too late to evacuate, right now they just need a shelter, in place in, North Carolina, there's, also curfews, in effect in some areas Dare County has one for everywhere except Kitty Hawk you, can't go outside until noon Hyde, County, had one for Ocracoke until, 6:00 a ban on alcohol sales also in place that was 6:00 this morning and, perk woman's also, had one that lifted at 6 Ashley oh Dan, right now San Bridge residents, are under a mandatory, evacuation. Order so let's head to 13 News now reporter, Megan Shen Megan is outside, Pelham High School in Virginia Beach and Megan Kelly Callum. High School is one of the shelters for the city. That's. Correct Ashley, and people stayed here overnight after. Getting that mandatory, evacuation. Order for the area of sandbridge and the rain out here right now it's just coming down a little bit more the winds are still not too bad but of course the, officials, for the city of Virginia Beach were mainly concerned about, the heavy rainfall and the potential, for flooding in, this area which is something neighbors see quite often of, course all this due to Hurricane Dorian, heading, north, towards, Hampton Roads Elise and of course we're, talking about a little bit more of people. Being inside here those neighbors, we spoke with yesterday say, that, they heed, these orders they take it very seriously, as a city gives it to them, we. Feel we're in danger we're gonna move if they, say it's mandatory to get out of here we're, not gonna question it. There's, a second, shelter, over at old donation. Center, and you, guys you can bring your pets to the shelter here at Callum if you need to bring your, pets this is a pet friendly area, and we have mandatory. Evacuation. Order once again for Sandbridge and also. A voluntary. Evacuation order, for people in zone a and low-lying, areas around Virginia, Beach live, in Virginia Beach, Meghan Chen 13, News now. Thank. You Megan looking live on. The roads this is from the mobile weather lab and, you, see they've, come across a road, that is under water Tim, Pantages has an update and what he's seen in North Carolina, just ahead. 13, News Now daybreak, we have special, storm mode coverage, of Hurricane Dorian and we're getting some light now on the ocean front you can see the waves pretty rough out there not a lot of activity at the ocean front as you wouldn't think.
You Know here it is we've got a tropical storm coming. In as far as the conditions, go hurricane-force, conditions, southern Outer Banks right now we're getting reports of that and I'm gonna talk to you some more about what's going on down there in just a moment 76. At the airport, rain right, now north, east, winds sustained. At 23, we've seen winds sustained, at the airport up around 30 to 33 miles per hour with, gusts up, to tropical, storm-force already, up in norfolk this, system, right now still, rolling to the northeast 14, miles per hour it is a category, 1 hurricane it, weakened a little bit overnight thank, goodness, but, it is going to continue to move off to the northeast that Center coming by Buxton. And Hatteras. Right now that eye wall is over Ocracoke, and it is continuing. To move along so this, area getting hit very hard and we'll zoom in on the radar coming, up in just a moment Broadview, here, you can see the circulation there, it is moving, along quickly you remember the models for a long time we're saying that I would be very close to Hatteras at 8 o'clock I'd. Say they've done a really good job in handling that they started as speed, up slow down and play a little bit with that just you know yesterday a little bit but consistently. It had been putting it right around 8 o'clock at Hatteras that that's going to work out really, really good you, can see heavy rain rotating. Back towards, the coast we're seeing more of the rain filling, in now across the Eastern Shore there's even heavier stuff set to roll into Accomack. And North Hampton down, across the Southside, we've seen squalls come through with some gusty winds more rain it's, been heaviest, the rain down across North Carolina and, we still have very heavy rain yet to come we've got Tim. Pantages out in the mobile weather SUV, he's gonna have an update for us in a moment stay tuned for that right, now the heaviest rain south. Of the Elizabeth City we've got some bands rolling, in around alligator, you can see back across mainland, air some pretty heavy stuff but then you get down to buck stood and Rodanthe. I just talked to a buddy of mine who, is riding this thing out in his property, at salvo, and we'll take a little closer look at that right there you can see how intense that rain is his, name's John rudest he's a retired, Chesapeake, fire fire many, folks in the first, responding, community, know, of John Rudess he served on task, force two and. He's just an incredible job he's. Got a group. Down there that are working to support each other and he's on standby, to kind of help out a little bit down there as well but, he would say Craig the house is rocking, right now and he says he had yet to go through a storm feeling, what he's feeling down there so, we'll be hearing more from him as our extended, coverage continues past seven o'clock as, we take a look down across Ocracoke, again these heavy rains coming. Across Ocracoke, approaching. Buxton there's the eye right there so you can see, parts. Of ocracoke actually, in the eye and this heavy band rolling, towards Hatteras things getting, rough down there for sure I'm going to talk about the Futurecast and what's, going on in just a moment let's get another update from Phil Townsend, who's in the newsroom hey. Craig yes I have your latest storm. Mode alert let's go to Virginia Beach police they're safe because of storm, activity their. Non-emergency. Line is, down right now so you'll need to call 911. See. And non-emergency. Situations. We're. Also still seeing a lot of power outages, over. Two thousand people in Virginia Beach don't have power wrap right now most of those issues out in Sandbridge and Chesapeake, you see 3600, there it's actually down, to 1400. Right now it's good news for people in Chesapeake. And in Norfolk just 700. People without power right now we're gonna track these numbers very closely I'll bring you another update in about thirty minutes all. Right Phil thank, you and. Conditions, are getting rough both on land and also at sea and that's why the Coast Guard is warning, boaters that the water is actually one of the worst places you can be right now especially, because they may not be able to respond, to your call for help now, most of the search-and-rescue vessels, they're no longer even in Portsmouth.
Some. Are up in Annapolis, summer in the James River and our. Star capabilities. That are a ability, to respond on the water has been greatly diminished and boat. Owners they already know those vessels need to be tied down securely, for this storm norfolk-based. Navy, ships also got underway, ahead of Dorian a lot of sailors and pilots left, earlier this week, now some ships are staying here because they're undergoing maintenance but, the Navy is taking extra steps to secure, those ships, well the, f-22, Raptors, and t-38. Talons, from Langley Air Force Base are riding, out the storm in Ohio so, with that being said let's, get another check of the forecast. Certainly, here, and as Dorian moves, up the coast Craig all right as we go through the morning the impacts, from Dorian are gonna shift around a little bit we're gonna start watching the rain shield move we're gonna start clearing, certain areas from heavy rain other, areas, will still get hit with heavy rain we're, also going to be monitoring, changes, in the winds will check in with Rochelle in just a moment one, thing that we're really concerned with the tide, levels, and we are still expecting, major tidal. Flooding this, afternoon, and it's kind of one of those things where we're looking at this stuff and we're seeing the wind's coming in and raising, the water level so we're gonna watch for this but at this point we're anticipating major, tidal, flooding six point seven feet that is the forecast, high tide from, the forecasters. That the Weather Service will pass that along notice, the high tide coming this afternoon after that much, lower water we came through with just basically, nuisance. Type flooding, this morning at the high tide we knew that wasn't going to be a problem and the, next one following, this afternoon's, high tide also, not expected, to create any widespread, issues, at all but, the one this afternoon that's one we're concerned with it's tools point and that's the official measuring, stick for Norfolk. And for most of Hampton Roads we really work off that up in Yorktown also, expecting. Major tidal, flooding this afternoon, at 5.6 the, water level and at Duc pier. 7.7. Again, this afternoon's, high tide coming a little bit before 3:00 expected. To be major so here, we go look. At the eye there rolling, again the eye wall the northern Iowa over Ocracoke the eye itself, actually a little bit of land I think within the eye there, along Ocracoke and then heading up towards Harrison, Buxton, we've got very heavy rain right now working, across Avon, and around. Salbo are showing some of the different communities down there just a moment ago heavy, rain offshore working. Back notice how much lighter it is here some of our viewers out to the west again hey this isn't that bad remember we were saying half, an inch to an inch out towards, i-95, 1 to 5 inches, potentially, in here probably on the lower end is this pivots. Around a little bit the heavy concentration. Of rain closer to the coast that we knew we weren't sure how much we would see and how far west it would go and I don't want you to drop your guard just yet out to the west because this, area may expand a little bit if this starts to take on some extra tropical, characteristics as, a kind of pivots. Around and moves offshore we'll. Be watching that again, the center of circulation. My. Apple watch loves, to interrupt me during my for sorry. About that alright, so the rain rolls along and, we've got that I again, just now approaching, Buxton, and those heavy rains working. To Hatteras, and up towards Rodanthe right now Wanchese, very intense, rainfall Avon actually catching a little bit of a break so here's the forecast again we're gonna see that pivot and the change but we're really worried about the winds and with a look at that here's Rochelle pier good morning everybody continuing, to watch those wind speeds sustained, winds 30 40, miles per hour for areas like Norfolk, 35, 32, miles per hour right now in Currituck at 43. Miles per hour in Elizabeth, City and 47. Right now in depth that's just the sustained winds those gusts of course even higher we've got quite a bit of red showing up in there for those gusts 48, mile-per-hour gusts, right now in Currituck up to 46, mile-per-hour gusts, right now in Norfolk, 60. Mile per hour for those wind gusts right now in Elizabeth City and the gusts induct at 54. Miles per hour the buoys now reporting, at Hatteras 60 miles per hour the buoy just off the coast of Hatteras 76, mile per hour still with those 20-foot foot 24, foot.
Surfs, At this, hour but again Craig was just showing how close that eye wall is to. The area of Hatteras, so showing off this wind, forecast, for Williamsburg not too much we do have a chance for seeing some of those tropical, storm force winds one of the commuter puddles is bringing, that into Williamsburg. A little bit farther down toward the south in Norfolk we have a slightly better chance of seeing, that tropical storm force wind speed and definitely the wind gusts which will be higher than that moving, into the mermaid City as we move into North Carolina that, chance only increases, especially for the tropical storm-force winds this is for Elizabeth City where, we are having those 60, mile-per-hour wind, gusts right now we haven't even seen probably. The worst of that quite, yet and then toward Hatteras, we're watching tropical storm, force winds and possibly hurricane-force, winds certainly, hurricane-force. Gusts are on the way and we have pretty, good agreement with the computer models coming in here with the potential, for those stronger wind speeds later on today Craig alright Rochelle thank you for that I mentioned, the Futurecast, and, how things are gonna play out we're seeing again, that shift as it moves farther northeast the, RPM. Model that we're basing this Futurecast, off of a little overblown on the rain out that far to the west that's, okay the general thinking is right that we're gonna see heavier amounts of rain near the coast lighter, amounts farther inland, as we go through the afternoon and into the evening eventually. All, that rain pulls away but it's still going to be those wind's coming in from the northwest it'll push the water around and we could have some additional issues we're concerned with soundside flooding and the tides coming up here around, the, lower part of the Chesapeake Bay as well with the north and northwest winds, coinciding, with the high tide by, this evening as we head through the evening hours whatever is left of the rain gone, it tapers off and we're gonna see clearing overnight more sunshine for tomorrow so really looking forward to that all right so that is a sky. View that needs to have the camera iris very clearly, will take you to the oceanfront and you can see the view there again, rough surf obviously, and not a time for folks to venture out and play in that water 76. Degrees winds are north-northeast now at Norfolk, International the, winds have just ticked back up 35, miles per hour sustained. Winds, so we're almost we're, getting close you get upper 30s to near 40 you're talking tropical, storm-force winds not, quite there but close as far as sustained winds of course we'll see some higher gusts chances, for those stronger gusts down into, the northern part of the Outer Banks southern Outer Banks even stronger we will find hurricane-force, winds, and wind gusts down that way tonight's, low near 69, improvements, coming up tomorrow 84.
Mostly, Sunny it's going to be warm and muggy but much, nicer weather is we need to clean up some of the debris and tree limbs and different things like that that fall all right Tim you've, been down towards, Elizabeth City and you're reporting a lot of flooding down there tremendous, amount of rain. Yeah, Craig we're rocking and rolling down here now down in Elizabeth, City we're at the corner of flora, Street and River side, Avenue. And you. Can see it is impassable right, now this is not unusual for, this area there's a high water sign posted, over there so this happens often but the waters all the way up on this house all the way up to the garage doors Pasquotank. River is over on this side more. Homes lining, that and you see this house here kind of right on an island with water completely surrounding, it there I heard, Michelle say, that we had 60 mile-per-hour winds, down, here at Elizabeth City I tell you I believe it these these. Trees are bending, and bowing in every which direction here. And these gusts, are quite high in fact sustained, when they're not gusting, I'd say probably close to tropical storm-force easily, here of course coming here comes the gust right now it is extremely windy that rain not as heavy as it was as we were traveling here, we encountered a lot of debris in the roadways on 168th, to get here a few, roadways, were closed because of trees down and we even see some branches, floating in the water in the floodwater a little further down here on flora Street so this is certainly impassable, right now it's only gonna get a little bit worse before it gets better and once those winds turn around will like to see a back flow out into the Pasquotank River there too but Craig, that's the latest here I mean we've getting that rain we're getting that wind and certainly going to be a rough next couple of hours Tim I know as you were driving around down there you'd seen a tree, down on one of the roads how, does it generally been wind, gusts bringing down any limbs or anything like that what else have you seen down there. You. Know we saw the Sheriff's Department kind. Of block off a big tree that we're trying to move it on their own but it was just too large to and they had, another deputy arrived with a chainsaw and they started moving it it was probably like a 10, 10 inch diameter, tree, I look like an entire tree dad come on down we've seen numerous of those and there's, likely gonna be more with those winds getting a little bit stronger as durian tracks a little bit closer to the area before it exits but yeah, those winds are doing a number and certainly a lot of power outages too thankfully.
Around Here we're not seeing too many huge, trees, down just some limbs here and there but I mean as you can hear the gusts coming in again just getting stronger each minute that passes so, Tim we love your perspective down there real quick two things how the winds vented they've been kind of squally and also what's the sky like overhead now that it's starting to bright. Completely. Overcast here you. Know we, got some pretty you, know the winds I would, say they're getting more, more. Consistent, here I mean this gust right here is probably the strongest we've seen so far since, we've been here I mean. Can you hear we got shingles, flying off the house behind us here and the wind is just, you. Can probably hear it right now with that microphone I mean it it's coming on in off the Pasquotank River right now and there's actually some tree branches coming on down on that far side of the road so on that head, back into the storm storm mode vehicle and move, to a different direction thank, you so much Tim most importantly, you stay safe out there all right Rick Dilla with you we need our crews taking, care I know you will all right thanks, so much all, right our team of the most trusted meteorologist of hampton roads tracking, hurricane, dorian search, and rescue efforts are still underway in. The Bahamas though we head back there hundreds, of people still, unaccounted for after the storm durian. Hit the Abaco Islands, as a category. 5 earlier, this week and then it hovered, over Grand Bahama for more than 24, hours as a category. 4 30. People have been confirmed dead, officials. Expect that number to keep climbing, over the next few days you, know durian also caused widespread damage along, the coast of the Carolinas, that hit Charleston, South Carolina as, a category, 2 leaving. 250,000. People without power, check this out they were down power lines littering, the streets part of this roof for the church was, ripped off by strong winds more video out of South Carolina, this is a look at the rough surf and Myrtle Beach and finally. This video shows the aftermath of a tornado in, Emerald, Isle North Carolina, another. Was confirmed just about a half hour away so we. Will continue to keep an eye on the damage, and we. Will send, it over to you now Ashley, ok Dan well Madison Kimbrough is in Norfolk, where another, tree, is down we'll, get an update from her after the break. Reports. Of storm damage rolling, in this morning, Madison Kimbrough is in Norfolk on Kingston Avenue that's where a pretty large tree, fell overnight. Madison. You've gotten a better look in the last half-hour what's it looking like. Dan. And Ashley look at this now we have some natural, lighting where we can really show you the tree and the wind is definitely picking up take a look at this this is the tree that collapsed and totally, split from this tree right here at first glance it kind of looks like the tree was uprooted now, I'm gonna move very carefully down, here, so I can show you that this car was totally.
Destroyed By, the tree, and you can see the bark and everything, destroyed, in its path we can also see tree destruction, on the ground we, talked to Dominion, power who, mentioned how this roadway is not going to be cleared any time soon they're thinking probably, sometime, tomorrow, so people that drive this way or live in this neighborhood are really, gonna have to deal with this mess until then also, power, hasn't, been on for a lot of these homes in this area about 800. People are without power as of now so, only time will tell if durian, really, makes even more of an impact than it already has sending, it back to the news test like I said this is an insane, visual, scene, 13. News now okay. Madison thank you and 13 News now we'll be right back with more storm coverage back in one minute. Hurricane. Durian is here. And we are bringing you special, extended coverage the rain in the wind starting. To pick up but the worst is still yet, to come so we're talking major. Flooding, and strong winds out there a team of reporters to spread out from North Carolina to Peninsula, we'll get to them soon but first one to get to Craig with an update on dorians I'm in contact, with the gentleman down in salvo, that is writing, this thing out from his house there and he said Craig, I've not been, through a storm where he's felt the winds you know shaking, his house like this before and that I really, getting, closer and closer here's a 7:00 a.m. update, and we are constantly you'll, see us moving around in the studio and, getting. Different updates in certain areas. It's really, been something else some of the reports coming in right now the center. Of the storm 30, miles west southwest of Cape Hatteras tracking. To the Northeast, at 14, so you, can see within the next couple of hours the, center, over Hatteras. And the wall the northern I wall Northwest I wall moving, over that before then so within the next hour or so that is going to happen it's it's almost happening. Right now so we're, getting there as we take a look the winds have been steady, at about 90, miles per hour maximum sustained, they haven't fluctuated, up or down much during, the morning hours but it is going to continue moving, off to the northeast and we may see the wind field expand, a little bit on the back side sometimes, as these, systems, move over some of that warmer Gulf Stream water they can ramp up a little bit of intensity maybe tick up a bit and we see the winds increasing so we'll have to wait and see how, that plays out there's a look at the eye again Hatteras, right there so the center of circulation here. The center of the hurricane still, about 30 miles west-southwest of, Hatteras. More, heavy rain wrapping, back towards, Virginia, Beach and for Norfolk, and we'll take a closer look at that in a moment notice Buxton, right now seeing some of the very very heavy rain the eye just, off, to the southwest of that coming, through Rodanthe, also dealing with some pretty intense rainfall, there so that's a look at kind of the distance at what's going on now here's what I want to prepare folks in Virginia Beach for we've, been talking about the conditions getting a little bit squall here look, how heavy this rain is just offshore, and it is wrapping, back towards, the, coast so we're going to watch that we've we've. Been going. And. Continuing. To monitor these squalls these heavier bands that, are working back towards the coast so that will continue to be something, that we pay super, close attention to we're also watching the winds and Rochelle Pier it has a look at that definitely. Continuing to watch those winds they're going to crank, up as we move through the next couple of hours do want to tell you about a report out of Cedar Island they had a wind gust there of 96. Miles, per hour and and Hatteras they have had a wind gust over 60, miles per hour currently, some of the sustained winds across our area 24, in Norfolk 35, right now in Currituck as we talk about those wind gusts of course in miles per hour 44. Right now in Norfolk we can hear that rain battering, down on the ceiling here on the roof rather of 13 News now 45, miles per hour for the gusts currently, in Currituck, up to 56, miles per hour for the gusts in Elizabeth City Moyock, and duck both gusting at 45, miles per hour watch a pre gusting, at 38, miles per hour definitely.
Starting To shake some things across, here in Hampton Roads talking, about the buoys however 66. Miles per hour right now at Hatteras we are dealing with that buoy just off the coast of Hatteras 69, miles per hour 20. Foot 24, foot. Waves, there at this hour possibly. Could be cranking up even more do you want to talk about some wind reports these are coming out of the office in Morehead City North Carolina, Frisco. 69, miles per hour Buxton, 62, miles per hour Oregon, Inlet at 61, miles per hour so far these are as of 6:45, Kill Devil heads 52, mile-per-hour wind, and then nags at 48. Miles per hour we do have reporters, across, Virginia. And North Carolina we'll get some reports out of them coming up a little bit later for, now Craig back to you all right we're gonna continue to see those wind reports ticking, up with stronger winds as this, kids closer and eventually comes just, northeast, of Hatteras that's when we expect the strongest winds later this morning and even into the afternoon powerful. Winds and then that wind shift coming, around as we mentioned that's where we'll have additional concerns soundside. Flooding, and our, tide levels, and I just checked tools, point the water level the forecast, level and what's actually observed, right now we're about 2.2. Feet above, the. Forecasted amount and that is going to continue to grow with these winds continuing, to drive the water into, the bay now these, heavy areas of rain approaching. Virginia, Beach so we're going to continue to, see, this on the increase, and it looks like it's going to be one of those deals where the, coastal, areas tremendous. Amounts of rain is this all rain. Starts, to pivot and it takes on a more North to South flow right now it's still kind of wrapping back from, the east and from the southeast back towards the coast but as the, system pulls off to the Northeast that pivot, will occur and we're going to get a prolonged period of heavier rain and that's why we have the additional flooding concerns, with those rains four, to eight inches we heard from temp and a just down around Elizabeth. City they had some flooding issues down there already, and we'll continue to check in for more on that much, lighter amounts out to the west the winds again the big issue as. Far as the inland areas not too bad right now sustained, winds but the gusts have been stronger, and look at our sustained, winds near the coast we're now looking at upper, 30s to near 40 so getting close to tropical storm-force, sustained. Gusts, higher than that as you can see down. Around Elizabeth, City gusts, up around 56, and those winds expected, to pick up take a quick look at the forecast here and this is based on the GFS, model just, want to give you a feel kind, of what we've already been looking at Norfolk with gusts to 42 miles per hour stronger, gusts down at Hatteras but as we take you over the coming hours we're gonna see those gusts really increasing, as we head towards midday and the storm system starts to pull off a little bit more to the Northeast and it has a clearer shot some of those stronger winds coming back to the coast so as we go towards midday we could see gusts up around 60, miles per hour Norfolk.
Virginia Beach, Elizabeth, City still at that level Edenton. We could see some strong gusts down around the sound so we're going to be watching that Hatteras. Obviously, on, the backside there may be catching a little bit of a break but more squalls could come back around and as those winds shift, to the northwest this is where we're so concerned with, the sound side flooding, those strong winds through, the afternoon so we're. Continuing to track this coming through we're going to deal with a very, very, raw day with wind and rain worse, at the coast, not, as bad inland, but for the coastal areas we're gonna deal with it and it's going to be a pretty. Much a day long event with him Ruben's coming as we get into the evening so that's, a look at the forecast as, far as the winds go wind, and rain through the day guys big improvement, so later tonight back to you our. Extended. Team coverage, starts now on the Outer Banks and Jacqueline, Lee is live in Kill Devil Hills Jacqueline, you've been out there for a while how, have conditions. Changed, out there and what are you seeing right now clearly, a lot of water on the road. Yeah. Ashley and Dan the conditions, out here have changed drastically I will say it's sprinkling, right now it's, it's a little windy but not much this, is a huge pivot from just a few hours ago all of last night all of this morning the wind was just gusting. You had the rain pounding, against the windows at the hotel so, we're right now we're on NC, 12 in Kill Devil Hills this is the extent of the, conditions that we're seeing just a few inches of water pooling on the side of the road I'll say we were surprised this. Morning just seeing, this is about it I mean we. Started thinking we started a nags head we drove along South. Croatan highway up towards, Kill Devil Hills there, was no flooding no roads closed we pivoted over here to NC 12 and this is about it so let's turn over here let's talk about the houses let's, talk about homeowners we've been here the last few days a lot, of them decided to stick it out they said hurricane Torrey and they're not expecting, it to be a big, deal and I will say standing out here in these conditions. This is living up to their expectations. A lot of people said that they're. Gonna ride it out because they, don't think this is as big of a deal as what officials, are saying now, while I would never advocate following. Not, following, what officials say. This. Is I think, the conditions out here kind of explain why a lot of locals decided not to leave now, I will say dare County officials said do. Not Yost, come. Outside you have a curfew extended, until noon except. For in Kitty Hawk but other than that this, is what we're seeing here we're. Gonna we just talked to one man who ventured. Outside he, was saying that we're here outside Jolly Roger and this. Is the only restaurant that. Typically stays open during, storms, and it's closed so we're going to talk with him in a second we'll have more from him coming up a little bit later this morning so, for now I'm Jacqueline Lee and Kill Devil Hills back to you yeah interested. To hear what he says in his decision, to close today Jacqueline I've been, following your coverage down there for a couple days I know yesterday you talked to a couple who's been married for five, decades they're, choosing to ride out the storm oh I know what was their decision behind that walk us through the thought process. You.
Know They said they've experienced. Nor'easters, they've experienced, hurricanes they've lived here in, the Outer Banks for 15 years they, said the only way they would ever leave is if it was like a category, four or five direct, hit but other than that they said as long as you tie down the furniture, you stock up on the food you fill the bathtub, full of water in case the water gets cut off they, said they're gonna be fine, right. There's some good advice there from some folks riding out the storm that was Jacqueline Lee and Kill, Devil Hills, let's, move now to Virginia, Beach reporter, Evan Watson, is at the oceanfront Evan. Tell us what you're seeing down there. Yeah. Just in the short time that I've been here the conditions, I've, really peeked up obviously the, sand coming off of the beach here you can easily get sand blasted if you're on the boardwalk or down farther in the sand this is the Rudee Inlet at the oceanfront the. The. Water and the rain coming in heavily, from the ocean, direction, here coming, in this way and then if we turn just a little bit this way you can see kind of the waves crashing, in we were down here yesterday, and, the water wasn't going up that high up the beach over there in fact where, the water is right now there were people fishing. Over there with the fishing line so the. Conditions definitely increasing. Out here at the oceanfront. Waves crashing, onto the rocks when you look, over there towards the Rudy in that side of things we didn't see a couple of people out here some, brave, storm chasers, walking around with their rain jackets, checking, everything out, it is not unbearable I'm not being pushed, off my feet by the winds right now I'm able to stand here comfortably, but, rain coming in definitely, kind of biting on the face and you can feel that those, are the current conditions, here at the oceanfront all the way up and down the boardwalk. Evon. Thank you for that you know you just mentioned there were a couple of people down, there but of course we know there are mandatory, evacuations. In a Virginia Beach voluntary. Ones as well for, anybody that is out there certainly. Since you're into elements yourself, what would you say to them in terms of getting saved and staying safe out there near the oceanfront. Yeah. I would say of course just be very cautious to what you're in thankfully, this area I don't see many much flooding on the roads which can be a danger, when you're out driving the, mandatory evacuations. Of course the first sand bridge which is farther, south to my side down here and then up here at the boardwalk, most, people inside of the hotels a lot of the tourists, I talked to yesterday saying hey we have food we have water we're all prepared we're gonna stay inside we're gonna watch it from our hotel room the, generators, in there for people here just to be cautious and, and, make sure that you're close to cover close to your car, if you need to go back but also if you don't need to be outside you know just stay, inside stay away from all of this and, if you are just make sure to watch your surroundings at all time all. Right Evan, thank you very much be safe out there we'll be checking in with you throughout the morning the, city of Virginia Beach may be forcing, people to evacuate but they're not leaving you without a place to go neighbors, and Sandbridge are under a mandatory, evacuation because. The durian so, emergency management is opening the dam that gate for people to evacuate - in case roads there flood out the city is also giving options for those planning on staying through the storm. One. Of two shelters in the city one here at all donation, and one at Kellen Kellum is a pet. Friendly shelter. And. The. Shelter is open 24/7. Through, Sunday, I just, wanted to pull, up let's see let's pull up the power, outages, Maps we. Are on the minions, website. Ashley and we've seen several, hundred in the, dark near the ocean view area and that was because of that downed tree that Madison was reporting, on a little earlier this morning but also a couple thousand, in other parts of the areas yeah that's right the numbers have kind of fluctuated, we've been watching them all morning long you know it they've been in the thousands, for awhile they were lower a little bit earlier, this morning at this point about sixty six hundred people across.
Hampton Roads without power the, the big outages, in Chesapeake, and appears, to be Virginia, Beach as well but we're keeping a very close on, those outages we spoke with Bonita a little bit earlier this morning she joins us now, again, just talking about the latest and they may mean. I should say going back to those. Outages I know you all have been working so hard to, get the lights back on across Hampton Roads what's the latest out there, that's. Right well thanks so much for keeping an eye on that math and as you look at it I'm sure you can see the numbers crying climbing, and Orion, is just getting started in our area we had about 1600. Out of his overnight and our crews worked all night long to get those restored, there was one big one in Norfolk in the Bay View area, then another one popped up in the London Bridge area of Virginia Beach and now as you said we are seeing them in Chesapeake, and in different areas a lot, of times they are the the, most trouble spots or the areas that are most prone to flooding or, very close to the coast or have a lot of trees we've. Seen a lot of trees and tree limbs fall, hitting power lines dragging them down and our. Crews have have worked hard to try to restore power as quickly as they can but, as the storm kicks up they will have to stand back until, it's safe to go back out and restore, power so, we just ask customers to please be patient, and know that we are on it and as soon as it's safe to go outside we will get the typical back outside we'll be working as hard as we can we have like 7000, restoration. Professionals, coming from 17, different states that are here in town to help us out so we're in good shape and, we do hope they stay safe at home that. Was my next question in terms of numbers how many people can you have on standby, seven thousand that is incredible, so, during. The peak of the storm when they're forced to kind of sit on the sidelines, what do you recommend people at home do, should they lose power, well.
People Are home lose power the most important thing to do is to report their power outage hopefully, they've charged up their phones and they can do it right from their smartphone, on Dominion energy calm or. They can call us at one eight six six, help. Which, is one eight six six three, six six four three five seven and they can also follow on social media to have an idea of what we're doing, what's going on and what they can what else they can do at home and, hopefully by now they've already got all the water they need batteries. Non-perishable. Foods just in case they, have to endure power outages, for multiple, days all. Right Benita we thank you for chatting, with us again we know you've been between phone calls and, some of the staging areas for two minions so we, appreciate you taking the time to talk to us well. Thanks for all of your coverage we appreciate you guys thank you. Well. This was before the storm even really started to hit our area that tree came down in, Ocean View crushed. A red Nissan, SUV. These. Pictures are from viewer, Danielle, Nixon, and reporter. Madison, Kimbrough and our photojournalist. Out there as well, so if there are any trees down near your house we do want to know about it when, it is safe you, can email your pictures or video to share, it on, share. It at 13 News now.com I should say you can email us there you can send it to our Facebook page you can tweet it to us you can also share it in the Daybreakers, Facebook, group. All. Right guys we have a kind. Of a forecast, map it's an index it considers, the wind the rain the different, weather. Phenomena, that contribute, to power outages and kind of forecast, what we may experience we just heard, from Bonita, there from Dominion, and they. Have crews ready to go we're talking about isolated. Potential, isolated. That power outages off to the west not as much but closer to the coast scattered. To even numerous. As we head later, today especially, for Eastern North Carolina and, close to the coast so that's, just the way the models project the potential, for additional outages, later today as, of seven o'clock the center was located 30 miles west southwest of, Cape Hatteras moving. Northeast, at 14 miles per hour so within the next minute. Next, minute next hour or two it'll be crossing the center, of it over, Hatteras and then eventually off to the Northeast, our winds are actually going to pick up later as we go through, the morning and then into the afternoon they switch around and that presents some other issues, that will break down for you you, can see how that track continues, it off to the Northeast big difference here we're not looking, at a Mathieu type situation. Where it stalls, and expands, and just you know dumps, rain that just doesn't go away this is a situation that, it's going to keep on rolling and things, will improve, later, night skies will clear tomorrow's gonna be mostly sunny it's gonna be warm and muggy but it's going to be mostly sunny tomorrow that will aid in any. Cleanup efforts that need to be taken. Around the region I suspect, there will be some with trees and limbs and different things like that flooding issues as well so here's what we have the center moving along off. To the Northeast there look at the ice starting. To push towards, Buxton, right now it'll, be swinging up salvo. Waves Rodanthe, some of the different communities that will see that, heavy rain as it works up the, northwest. Part of the Iowa actually over the Pamlico Sound and, Ocracoke, pretty much inside, the, most heavy rain. With the Iowa there so it's actually kind of in the I was, looking at the distance here 20 miles so look, at maybe 35, miles across on the, ISO, that's the way things are looking now I want to talk about what's, happening up here this heavy rain set to roll back towards, the coast we're gonna see additional, wind and a lot of heavy rain associated with some of that we're gonna get a look at the winds right now with Rochelle yeah good morning everybody currently.
We Have 32 miles per hour that's just a sustained wind and Norfolk up toward Wallops Island 29, miles per hour 35 miles per hour in Currituck 41, miles per hour in Elizabeth City the winds and Moya I got 35, and 37 in duck, when it comes to those gusts 45 miles per hour and Currituck gusting the 38 right now in Wallops Island 43. Mile-per-hour gusts. In Norfolk, 55, miles per hour gusts in Elizabeth, City and 45 for that gusts in Moya 69. Mile-per-hour winds right now it had her 74, for the buoy just off of Hatteras, those, uh the, waves right now at 26, feet so do want to talk about some wind speeds some more wind speeds Kate Henry got up to 57, miles per hour so far as of 7:00, a.m. Norfolk, International that, wind gusts got 248 miles per hour South Craney Island in Portsmouth that wind gusts up to 44, miles per hour Suffolk, 40 mile per hour wind and then at Langley and Hampton we had that wind at 39. Miles per hour so again these are just as of 7:00 a.m. as we go through the morning hours and these are just for our Virginia counties I showed North Carolina I'm going to tweet out both of these and you'll find that at the hashtag 13 News now I'm gonna send it back over to Craig with an update all right and keep in mind you know it's still early we're gonna see the winds increasing this morning so, those numbers will be ticking up I will say so far, so good we didn't additional, tornadoes. Spinning. Up since early this morning, Jeff and Evan were here late last night we kind of high-fived as we switched over shifts, around two o'clock this morning so, it was a late night for those guys and they're going to be back to help us finish out the coverage through the afternoon, and into the evening tonight, but, they were tracking, isolated. Tornadoes, around 12:30, and 1:30, in the morning, they were down south of Hertford around collaring we. Did have at one point there was a debris, signature, so a pretty good indication that there was something drawing. Up some, debris so we'll have to wait till everything settles out and go back and kind of analyze things but we haven't had any tornado, warning since here's, what I want to focus on right now while Norfolk seeing light to moderate rain and we're still hearing it here at the station the heavier pockets of rain working around pongo colony. Acres and back up towards the oceanfront but this rain, offshore much. Heavier and that's coming, closer so while, you take a look around Rudy, inlets and Rudy heights back, down through Dam Neck, Sandpiper, you head down farther south San Fiddler's Road it's, very, intense the rainfall, there we've got more intense rain coming, in around Rodanthe. And salvo I mentioned, that East Lake up to Kill Devil Hills we, have this going on so we'll continue to deal with issues I think water, obviously flooding. Could be a concern, for that but then the tides and the wind driven water, later, this afternoon sound side flooding a whole nother issue and we'll break that down coming up let's check in now with Phil who has another update hey. Craig yeah let's get to your latest storm mode alert, here's, what's new at the Chesapeake Bay bridge-tunnel it's. Under a level two wind restriction, that means the maximum safe, speed if you're driving out there 45. Miles per hour we. Also have this photo in curt, account, e fire and EMS crews say they've, safely, transported, dozens, of nursing. Home patients out of harm's way this. Is a picture of a medical bus making that evacuation ahead, of the storm this, was actually yesterday afternoon, glad, to see that smooth trend, in there okay, I'll have another update in about 30 minutes, okay. Philip thank you well the center of Hurricane Dorian has moved past Wilmington. North Carolina and, reporter, Maddie Gardner, has the latest on what's happening in Wilmington, right now. I'm. Maddie Gardner reporting in downtown Wilmington, where, it was a long night dealing. With hurricane durian. The, wind is still the story this morning you can hear it start to pick up here we're getting wind gusts of up to 50 miles per hour the rain has since subsided, but the wind is going to be an issue today and you can see it start to blow these trees around down in downtown, Wilmington. The wind is an issue for a couple of reasons number one there are widespread power outages, in North Carolina, right now and Power crews can't get out and assess the damage and restore that power until, the wind dies down below 40 miles per hour which is not the case right now so people with the lights off are going to have to stay that way for just a little bit longer, another, issue because of that wind are the bridges we know many of these bridges connect to Eastern North Carolina connects.
These Coastal, towns and those bridges close down once wind speeds reached 45, miles per hour or higher so, anyone who decided to ride out the storm on, the beach they're, pretty much stuck there until the wind speeds died down a little bit more so, we're waiting for the wind to die down as, Dorian moves, up the East Coast toward, Cape Hatteras in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, but. Many people here in downtown Wilmington are breathing, a sigh of relief this, morning waking up and still, waiting for that Sun to come up so they can get a good idea of the damage but a lot of them were anxious, they were on pins and needles waiting to see what hurricane durian, would leave behind especially. Not even being a year removed from hurricane Florence last year and that, there you go there's that wind that is what we're still seeing this morning wind, gusts up to 50, miles per hour or higher still, in downtown, Wilmington and, Dorien is already making its way out reporting. From Wilmington, North Carolina. Maddie Gardner. All. Right Maddie thanks quick PSA, I want to put out there and this is for folks in Virginia Beach, because, of the storm their non-emergency. Line is down so, they're asking people if you have a non-emergency and you need to call dial, 3-1-1, if. You have an emergency and you need to call of course stick to the 911, one but they're asking you to save. 911. CS only we've been keeping a very close eye on all of the alerts from the cities the emergency, departments, a lot of folks have been out, there just trying to make sure everyone is safe at this point the, very latest with, with Dorian I know you've been keeping a close eye on that yeah I've been watching the winds and I'm gonna show both Virginia, and the North Carolina latest, wind speeds and also, some gusts that have come out so far of course those will are expected, to climb but we're gonna get over to Craig he's updating, stuff right now and he has the latest yeah just taking a look at the tide levels because we're, gonna see the rain and we're still seeing that uptick in winds that Rochelle will break down for you in a moment but the, bigger concern again, for Norfolk is going to be the tidal flooding still expected, to be major and I am constantly, checking and, monitoring the water levels, at sewells, Point the reason we do that that is the official, measuring gauge for Hampton Roads and Norfolk, specifically. So we came through the high tide this, morning with an observed, height right around, let's. See the exact water level was up around, 4.2. Or so that, was early this morning, now the, departure, the difference, the, water is running about two and a half feet above, the forecast, height and as we take you through, the afternoon major tidal, flooding expected and, I will show you that in just a second, we take a look here at Dorian. In case you haven't already heard, still, category, one 90, mile per hour winds moving northeast, 14, miles per hour the eye basically. Pushing over Buxton right now the center, will cross over Hatteras. Within the next hour or so and then it continues off to the northeast so we'll get into the radar and show you that but you will note this thing continues, to, move off now with. The winds picking, up a little bit later this morning and into the afternoon we're. Still looking at a lot of water pooling into.
The Chesapeake Bay and then, as the winds shift to the north and the northwest the water that's been coming into the bay is going to push into the lower Chesapeake, Bay and again, this is coming through the afternoon, when, we have our high tide so with, the afternoon high tides still, looking at a six point seven foot, level. And that would be major flooding some of the worst flooding that we've seen in several, years, potentially if we hit that level and the forecast, is pointing to that so think, about that again if you're at an area that, is even, relatively. Prone, to flooding with these big Nor'easters, are these big events and you've got a car you need to move it to a safer, location you, can still do it right now even though the winds are starting to pick up a little bit there's still time but the water levels will be coming up as we, go through the late morning and then into the afternoon that's where we're going to get into that major flooding Yorktown. Major flooding as well 5.6, feet again, like, sewells point and as you'll see down in duck this is going to be a one-and-done, kind of a thing, with the major flooding it comes up through the afternoon high tide and then the levels will be much more manageable for the subsequent high tides so just hang in there duck Pyrrhic spectin a level around, 7.7. Feet that is major flooding, down there as well there's, a center again that eye wall, coming, over Buxton, and Hatteras, and they're just about into the eye the center of circulation still. Down to the south west, of Hatteras, it is still moving northeast, so this thing was really well handled, by the forecast, models, as far as bringing it close to Hatteras around 8 o'clock we're, very close to that right now still. Areas of heavy rain I will say Ares out to the west not, as much we said now 1 to 5 inches potentially, depending on how far to the west these heavier bands would, come we knew we would get heavier amounts several, inches anywhere three to seven maybe four to eight here and heavier, amounts into North Carolina so far we're on track with that and as this system pulls to the northeast we may get some additional expansion some more heavy rain coming in so we're gonna need to watch all of that we're also watching, the winds and Rachelle's done a great job all morning of tracking the winds and the forecast, let's hear from her now yeah good morning everybody so right now calm winds in Surrey and also in Gloucester but as we head toward Norfolk sustained, winds this is all I'm gonna be showing you with this update 35. Miles per hour for the winds in Norfolk, also in Currituck we're seeing some stronger winds down into those areas north, of the Albemarle, Sound sustained, winds in Elizabeth, City at 41, miles per hour 35, miles per hour Moyock, 38, miles per hour right now in Duncan for our neighbors in Virginia Beach 26. Miles per hour right, now so, talking about some of the buoys at Hatteras, 74. Miles, per hour right now that is hurricane force. Sustained. Winds in those waters. At 80 miles per hour, to Mile 82, excuse. Me degrees and the buoy just off of Hatter 76, miles per hour in that of those winds at 26, feet Oregon, Inlet marina 36, miles per hour not too far off but a little bit farther to the north so some wind speed as of 7:00 a.m. in Virginia Cape Henry 57. Miles per hour Norfolk International at, 48, miles per hour clocking, a max, wind so far at 48 miles per hour in Suffolk 40 miles per hour and langley, air force base on the peninsula 39. Miles per hour into northeastern. North Carolina, this is Dare County Frisco, 69, mile-per-hour winds. Buxton, at 62, miles per hour 61. For the Oregon Inlet and Kill Devil Hills max, wind speeds so far at 52, miles per hour and at nags head 48, miles per hour so, far and again these are only as of 6:45. As we go through the next couple of hours that eye and that eye wall going to continue to push off to the north and the Northeast as well so we're going to continue to watch and update these as some of those stronger winds start to push in Craig all right Thank You Rochelle and, we are also watching the rain totals going, up you, can see this heavy batch here and I just want to show you this real quick we'll pull, back on just a moment but this heavy heavy rain, this, is that heavy tropical, rain the stuff that just comes down seemingly, in buckets, this, is working towards the oceanfront so folks from, 264. South a lot of residential, areas here along the oceanfront. And I, think of around general booth Boulevard, areas down to the south you are set to get extremely. Heavy rain working into your area obviously, Sandbridge. Seeing, that and back bay as well so Pongo. Will see how far back, to. The West it goes before it starts to slide down but this is what we're watching and one area that's really seeing a tremendous amount, of rain already, areas, around Elizabeth.
City And that's where we find Tim Pantages, you're, back in our mobile SUV. There the weather. Lab out there checking things out what, are you finding Tim. Yeah. We're mobile again Craig we're on our way to another location in Elizabeth City we've heard of a lot of flooded, roadways and we came across another one right here this is look in the Pelican. Drive Pelican. Point Drive actually, and water, here probably about a foot foot and hat half, up on the roadways Coast. Guard base is pretty much right over this row of houses that's actually on our right, side of the vehicle so, we're pretty close to the base they're pretty close to the waterfront, and just. A lot of rain coming on down here we've seen some wind gusts from our weather, station here on top of the storm, mode SUV, clocking. Winds over 55, miles per hour and some higher gusts than that I heard Rochelle and, our last hit talk about 60 mile-per-hour gusts reported in Elizabeth City and cer
