Hurricane Warning

Statement as of 11:30 PM EDT on August 31, 2016

Expires 7:30 AM EDT on September 01, 2016


... Hurricane Warning in effect...

A Hurricane Warning means hurricane wind conditions are expected
somewhere within this area and within the next 36 hours

* locations affected
    - Saint Marks
    - Panacea

* wind
    - latest local forecast: equivalent strong tropical storm force
      wind
        - peak wind forecast: 45-60 mph with gusts to 80 mph
        - window for tropical storm force winds: early Thursday
          afternoon until Friday afternoon

    - current threat to life and property: moderate
        - the wind threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency plans should include a reasonable threat for
          strong tropical storm force wind of 58 to 73 mph.
        - To be safe, earnestly prepare for the potential of
          significant wind impacts. Remaining efforts to secure
          properties should now be brought to completion.
        - Dangerous wind is possible. Failure to adequately shelter
          may result in serious injury, or in some cases loss of
          life. Move to safe shelter before the wind becomes
          hazardous.

    - Potential impacts: significant
        - moderate damage to frame built homes, primarily due to the
          loss of roofing and siding materials, along with damage to
          porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. Some windows and
          garage doors may fail. Mobile homes damaged, some
          significantly if unanchored. Unsecured lightweight objects
          become projectiles.
        - Several large trees uprooted; some snapped. Some large
          roadway signs blown over.
        - A few primary and some secondary roads are impassible due
          to debris.
        - Scattered power and communication outages; some locally
          significant, lasting for days.

* Storm surge
    - latest local forecast: life-threatening storm surge possible
        - peak storm surge inundation: the potential for 4-6 feet
          above ground somewhere within surge prone areas
        - window of concern: through Saturday morning

    - current threat to life and property: moderate
        - the storm surge threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency considerations should posture for a reasonable
          threat for dangerous storm surge flooding of greater than 3
          feet above ground.
        - To be safe, evacuees should be located within prescribed
          shelters and well away from storm surge flooding capable of
          significant impacts.
        - Life threatening inundation is possible. Those who failed
          to heed evacuation orders risk serious injury or loss of
          life.

    - Potential impacts: unfolding
        - potential impacts from the main surge event are unfolding.
        - The extent of realized impacts will depend on the actual
          height of storm surge moving onshore and the resulting
          depth of coastal flooding as experienced at particular
          locations.

* Flooding rain
    - latest local forecast: Flash Flood Watch is in effect
        - peak rainfall amounts: additional 6-10 inches, with locally
          higher amounts

    - current threat to life and property: high
        - the flooding rain threat has remained nearly steady from
          the previous assessment.
        - Emergency plans should include a reasonable threat for
          major flooding where peak rainfall totals well exceed
          amounts conducive for flash flooding and rapid inundation.
          Rescues and emergency evacuations are likely.
        - To be safe, aggressively prepare for the potential of
          extensive flooding rain impacts.
        - Life threatening flooding is possible. Failure to take
          action may result in serious injury or significant loss of
          life. If flood related watches and warnings are issued,
          heed recommended actions. Poor decisions may result in
          being cut off or needlessly risk lives. If vulnerable,
          relocate to safe shelter on higher ground before flood
          waters arrive.

    - Potential impacts: extensive
        - major flooding from rainfall will prompt evacuations in
          flood prone areas. Those not heeding evacuations in these
          locations face serious injury or death.
        - Rivers and associated tributary creeks and stream will rise
          and overflow into the flood plain. Runoff will put stress
          on area holding ponds and drainage ditches, increasing the
          likelihood of widespread urban flooding.
        - Flood waters will impact structures in low lying areas, as
          well as those in the flood plain, possibly entering
          buildings. Urban flooding will result in several Road
          closures and some washouts. A few overpasses may be
          weakened by fast moving flood waters. Driving conditions
          are very dangerous.

* Tornado
    - latest local forecast:
        - situation is somewhat favorable for tornadoes

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - the tornado threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - When implementing emergency plans, include a reasonable
          threat for isolated tornadoes.
        - To be safe, prepare for the potential of limited tornado
          impacts.
        - Listen for tornado watches and warnings. Be ready to
          shelter quickly if a tornado approaches.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - isolated tornadoes are expected, resulting in a notable
          impact to affected communities.
        - Isolated areas affected by tornadoes will experience minor
          damage, including some damage to structures and sporadic
          power and communication outages.
        - A few structures will be damaged by tornadoes, mainly with
          loss of shingles or siding. Some Mobile homes will be
          significantly damaged, especially those unanchored. Large
          trees will be snapped or uprooted.
