Hurricane Sandy Update #2 (3:56 pm)
Information provided during the State Emergency Response Team teleconference at 1:00 pm today is that overnight and today the storm seems to be coming more westward than originally projected.
There is a basic alert for the entire North Carolina coast beginning in eastern Carteret County to the Virginia border. Areas east of Highway 17 should take all appropriate measures as sustained winds of 30 – 40 miles per hour with gusts up to 60 miles per hour are expected. The projected storm center is 200 miles off shore with affects felt as far inland as east of I-95. There could be 20 – 30 mile per hour winds and rain totals of 2 – 5 inches with more possible in some locations.
