Hurricane Statement
Issued: 12:04 PM EDT Aug. 30, 2016 – National Weather Service

This product covers eastern North Carolina

**tropical depression eight slowly approaching the North Carolina
coast this afternoon**

New information
---------------

* changes to watches and warnings:
    - none

* current watches and warnings:
    - a Tropical Storm Warning remains in effect for Carteret... Outer
      Banks Dare and Outer Banks Hyde

* storm information:
    - about 70 miles south of Buxton NC or about 70 miles
      south-southeast of Ocracoke NC
    - 34.2n 75.3w
    - storm intensity 35 mph
    - movement north-northwest or 335 degrees at 5 mph

Situation overview
------------------

Tropical Depression Eight... located about 70 miles south of Cape
Hatteras, is moving toward the north-northwest near 5 mph. A turn
toward the north is expected later today, and a turn toward the
northeast is forecast on Wednesday. On the forecast track, the center
of the depression will be near the Outer Banks of North Carolina this
afternoon or this evening.

The primary impact will be heavy rain and the threat for localized
minor flooding, mainly along the coast. Rainfall amounts of 1 to
2 inches are expected on the coast with locally higher amounts of up
to 5 inches possible.

Tropical storm force winds will be possible along the coast, mainly
from Cape Lookout to Oregon Inlet. These winds could lead to some
downed trees and isolated power outages.

Minor storm surge flooding is possible with water levels rises of a
foot or less above normal resulting in inundation above ground level
of less than a foot. This would mainly be over the areas adjacent to
the southern and eastern Pamlico Sound and beaches from Cape Lookout
to Oregon Inlet.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* wind:
protect against dangerous wind having possible significant impacts
across the Outer Banks and downeast Carteret County. Potential impacts in this area
include:
    - some damage to roofing and siding materials, along with damage
      to porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. A few buildings
      experiencing window, door, and garage door failures. Mobile
      homes damaged, especially if unanchored. Unsecured lightweight
      objects become dangerous projectiles.
    - Several large trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater
      numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Several
      fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - Some roads impassable from large debris, and more within urban
      or heavily wooded places. A few bridges, causeways, and access
      routes impassable.
    - Isolated power and communications outages, but more prevalent
      in areas with above ground lines.

Elsewhere across eastern North Carolina, little to no impact is
anticipated.

* Surge:
protect against locally hazardous surge having possible limited
impacts across the Outer Banks and downeast Carteret County. Potential impacts in
this area include:
    - localized inundation with storm surge flooding mainly along
      immediate shorelines and in low-lying spots, or in areas
      farther inland near where higher surge waters move ashore.
    - Sections of near-shore roads and parking lots become overspread
      with surge water. Driving conditions dangerous in places where
      surge water covers the Road.
    - Minor beach erosion. Strong rip currents and rough shore break are likely.


Elsewhere across eastern North Carolina, little to no impact is
anticipated.

* Flooding rain:
protect against locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts across the Outer Banks and downeast Carteret County. Potential
impacts include:
    - localized rainfall flooding may occur.
    - Minor flooding will be possible at places where rapid ponding of water
      occurs, such as at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
      areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds become
      near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief Road and bridge
      closures.

Elsewhere across eastern North Carolina, little to no impact is
anticipated.

* Tornadoes:
little to no impacts are anticipated at this time across eastern North Carolina.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

* other preparedness information:
now is the time to bring to completion all preparations to protect
life and property in accordance with your emergency plan.

Check-in with your emergency points of contact among family, friends,
and workmates. Inform them of your status and well-being. Let them
know how you intend to ride out the storm and when you plan to
check-in again.

Keep cell phones well charged and handy. Also, cell phone chargers
for automobiles can be helpful after the storm. Locate your chargers
and keep them with your cell phone.

In emergencies it is best to remain calm. Stay informed and focused
on the situation at hand. Exercise patience with those you encounter.
Be a good samaritan and helpful to others.

If relocating to a nearby shelter or to the home of a family member
or friend, drive with extra caution, especially on secondary roads.
Remember, many bridges and causeways will be closed once higher winds
arrive. Also, if you encounter water covering the Road, seek an
alternate Route. Always obey official Road signs for closures and
detours.

If you are a visitor and still in the area, listen for the name of
the city or town in which you are staying within local news updates.
Be sure you know the name of the County or Parish in which it
resides. Pay attention for instructions from local authorities.

Closely monitor NOAA Weather Radio or other local news outlets for
official storm information. Be ready to adapt to possible changes to
the forecast.
