Hurricane IRMA Notice - September 8 - 8:00 A.M.
Posted by Century 21 Thomas Blogger | Friday, September 8, 2017


As you can see from the accompanying graphic taken from the National Hurricane Center, tracking for Hurricane Irma, still very much a powerful and deadly storm, has moved to the west some and currently it appears that our area does not fall within the "cone of uncertainty."

We all know that there is no finality to tracking projections at this point, so simply complete your hurricane plan preparations and continue to monitor the forward progress of this storm.

Currently, the city of North Myrtle Beach Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is at Opcon 4, which means that EOC leaders continue to monitor this storm closely and converse with state and county emergency management leaders about probabilities and support.

All city personnel who would staff the EOC and those who would respond to emergencies on many different levels are prepared to begin their work shift rotations, should that become necessary.

 
PLAN AHEAD

If you do not have a hurricane or disaster plan, we recommend that you visit www.ready.gov which offers good advice on how to prepare for a hurricane. The storm is still far enough out that you do have time to effectively prepare for it, should it head this way.

 
KNOW YOUR "ZONE"

IF an evacuation is ordered in the future (none has been ordered at this time), the order will refer to Zones. If you are not familiar with the Zone in which you reside in Horry County or North Myrtle Beach, you can access the information via this link: https://tinyurl.com/y9nj6mlb If the link does not work for your, visit www.HorryCounty.org
