Hurricane Matthew Alert
Posted by Century 21 Thomas Blogger | Monday, October 3, 2016

It is too early to identify the final course Hurricane Matthew will take but, given its size, its current power and the various potential paths it could take. City of North Myrtle Beach residents and businesses should be alert to this storm, and should check its progress and location daily, particularly from Wednesday onward.

Review your hurricane preparedness and response plans, and check you hurricane disaster kit to make sure you have all the supplies you need should the hurricane impact our area.

The latest forecast from the National Hurricane Center and the latest forecast models continue to keep Hurricane Matthew off the coast but to what degree is unknown. Uncertainty continues to be high as to how an upper level trough and a ridge of high pressure over the Atlantic Ocean will steer the hurricane. Confidence in the ultimate location and strength of these features is not great at this time.

Since Matthew is a large storm, there are a wide range of weather events that could impact our area. These include the potential for heavy rain and flash flooding, strong winds, coastal flooding, and significant erosion and over-wash from high surf. Again, the final direction this storm takes will determine the level of impacts we will experience.
