  • State of Emergency issued for North Carolina ahead of Hurricane Michael

"We know this is an extremely hard time, especially for many of our customers who have already endured the impacts of Hurricane Florence - a storm some would consider a "once-in-a-lifetime" event", Howard Fowler, Duke Energy's incident commander for the Carolinas, said in a statement. There are 11 shelters that remain open from Hurricane Florence.

The storm's track would take it into the Carolinas, where winds of 39 to 73 miles per hour and "flooding rain" are expected, The Charlotte Observer reported.

Heavy rain and tropical storm force winds are to be expected according to the governor.

Many areas of Horry and Georgetown counties remain saturated from Hurricane Florence flooding, so NWS warns that flooding could occur in areas without much rainfall.

Today technology stocks saw their worst overall day since 2011 as investors concerns continue to mount over rising interest rates. Higher rates can slow economic growth, erode corporate profits and make investors less willing to pay high prices for stocks.

Winds are also expected to be strong enough to bring down trees already weakened from Florence, and some areas can expect to see up to 7 inches of rain Thursday.

The area could also see an increased risk of tornadoes on Thursday.

"If you can secure it, I would", Austin said. The middle of what will be a tropical storm will pass over the city at about noon, they added.

Smith said it was the first time she could remember the fair closing for a full day in 35 years.
