Well, it looks like the tropics are becoming a little more active. TS Gordon made landfall yesterday, bringing a lot of rain to the area with several fatalities already. Hurricane Florence has become a Cat. 3 storm wind of 120 mph. Florence is still far out in the Atlantic, but forecasted to come close to Bermuda. We could see another tropical depression by the weekend, and model tracks on 92L are keeping the system south of Hurricane Florence. We will have to keep watching this system. Another wave is coming of the coast of Africa and as of now, it is has a low percentage of becoming a tropical depression.
I would like to thank the Pender County Commissioners for approving several budget items that will assist the Pender EOC in managing emergency incidents and events when they occur in the county. WebEOC management software will be updated, along with new computers.
