Tropical Storm Gabrielle to Hit North Carolina
The outer bands of the storm hit the Outer Banks of North Carolina last night and the main part of the storm is expected to make landfall sometime today. Judging from the map that was up at Weather.com the worst of it will skip over the main part of the state and then move up the coast.
The National Weather Service and the Coast guard don’t seem to be too worried about it but low lying areas will get some flooding so if you are in the area watch out and try to stay inside. Surge is supposed to be two to three feet and there will be a problem with rip tides up and down the coast.
