All residents of Hilton Head are being forced to evacuate due to Hurricane Florence. It's currently a category four, 110 mph winds and could possibly make it to a cat five by the time it hits land. He lives 15 minutes from there so I hope he and his family make it out safely. And anyone else that lives on the coast. I am 3.5 hours away and they are still predicting torrential rain and over 100 mph winds. This is supposed to be one of the biggest ones in years.

Thanks for your thoughts and prayers and let’s hope Florence doesn’t intensify or we will be in our he news’ cycles for some time to come!!!

It’s been pretty hectic to say the least...going to try and get out of here by 10am before the highways becomes a parking lot!

Sorry to hear this Bogozag. I've been following it in the news. You and your family will certainly be in my daily prayer. My prayers cover you. Be safe, and keep praying and trusting God. Let us know how it goes. And if you need help.

I hope Bogo and Spy will keep us up-to-date as they deal with the storm.

Spy, are you evacuating? What do you expect in your locale?

No, we're 3 hours from the coast, so we're just gonna get deluged with wind and rain; everyone's headed this way; according to the news all of the hotels in the Greenville area are booked solid for several days. Carolinazag, what's your situation?

Looks like the rain is the bigger threat. Potential for over 20 inches of rain in areas that have already received 300% of their annual average over the last two months.

I’m in Savannah GA. We’ve gone from little to no impact expected here to now possible tropical storm force winds and rain as Florence may drift southward along the coast. The uncertainty is rather stressful

Flex, you're lucky. THAT is one of the finest/prettiest cities I've ever seen. It is gorgeous! All the best! Good luck to all of our Zag friends!!

My cousin, from Colville, married a Marine aviator. They are at Camp LeJeune. He ferried aircraft to Tenn. She has evacuated (I think) by now, if not she will have by Saturday!

Flex, are you staying or leaving? Looks like a lot of rain but can't seem to find out about tropical winds...the wife works for Red Cross so she will be busy for the next couple-three weeks working with victims of the floods in SC.

We are close to the coast and thought that on Tuesday Florence was going to pass us by and go north BUT now the projection is for it to come our way sometime between Friday-Sunday. We planned on leaving Sun City Hilton Head yesterday morning but the governor rescinded the Mandatory Evacuation from our county so we didn't leave but decided to hunker down and accept the heavy rain. Well governor has not addressed the direction change of Florence and that has created a lot of stress for the 15K that live in this community.

Our house is on a lagoon with our very own gator, his mate and little ones and this community states that the lagoons can handle up to 14" of continuous rain before it reaches it begins to flood our home. The projecting is 9"-10" so it will be close...and of course we hope their science is wrong...

I-95, which heads north and south along the coast, the southern route to Florida is like a parking lot and to be safe, most of us would have to drive to Tennessee or Alabama and there are thousands upon thousands traveling on every other US or State Road heading East or West.

We were able to go our and purchase two cases of water and ice and hope that will be enough BUT if we happen to lose power for 16 hours then all our food in the freezer will begin to thaw and if we are hit harder than expected we could lose power for several days.

Georgia went through Hugo back in '89 and she was w/o power for three weeks! Our fingers are crossed and we will begin burning our palm leaves from Palm Sunday Friday!

We are optimistic and hope that the good Lord will be kind to us here as well as Savannah (GonzagaurusFlex).

Can't speak for Spy but he should have pretty green grass when this is all done...tons of rain is what they are projecting for his area...

More to follow...

Go Zags!!!!

Yes be safe, and you can put out containers to catch water after the winds have subsided. It sounds like there WILL be water.
