How to avoid being stranded at sea and on planes with travel advisories
Travelers are being urged to avoid the coastal areas of South Carolina and North Carolina, and to avoid any public events.
The governors have also banned certain gatherings, such as sporting events, concerts and public gatherings, that might draw crowds.
In addition, authorities have issued travel advisors for several counties in North Carolina and South Carolina, saying the region is prone to flooding and flooding could cause serious flooding and power outages.
“We do have flooding.
It is not a seasonal phenomenon,” Gov.
Nikki Haley said at a news conference Monday.
“The state is in the process of assessing what additional action to take to mitigate the potential impact of this event.
If the state does not receive additional federal assistance, we will seek federal assistance from the federal government.”
In North Carolina’s Beaufort County, the state Department of Health and Human Services warned residents to stay home Monday and advised people to avoid travel on public roads.
In the state’s Tar Heel state, officials said the flooding is expected to worsen and that people should consider postponing outdoor activities.
The storm is expected over the weekend to bring heavy rain to parts of the Carolinas coast, but it’s expected to be much weaker than in recent years.
The National Weather Service is predicting winds of 70 to 85 mph, with gusts up to 80 mph and strong winds up to 75 mph.
