The biggest downsides to hurricanes are the cleanup and the loss of power. The good thing about hurricanes is you typically know well in advance that they’re coming.

That shit is like clockwork down here.

You could lose your life but only if you’re stupid and try to stay in a spot that you have no business being in such as an old building with a shit roof or a house with a large ass tree next to it.

If it gets up to a 5 or strong 4 just leave.

Anything less just stay home unless you have an old place in which case go to a giant hotel.

By the looks of that storm track it’s going to dissipate rather quickly upon landfall.

Charlotte is pretty far from the coast. Do you guys still get it that bad that far inland?

Along with the southern tip of Florida, I know the NC coast gets hit with more hurricanes than anywhere else in the US. I'd be looking to buy a house made out of brick or concrete if I lived along the NC coast.

Normally we just get a lot of rain and tropical storm winds. Hurricane Hugo in the 80s was an anomaly. It came ashore in Charleston and was expected to weaken and move up the coast. Instead it barreled right up I-77 and hit Charlotte, still packing hurricane winds. Trees were down everywhere. People were without power for weeks.

I'm most concerned for the giant water oak in my back yard. If that thing falls it'll take out the back end of my house.

No worries. If you survive, and it's bad, no way Trump will the area as bad as Puerto Rico.
