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

Tropical Depression Eight... located about 230 miles southeast of Cape
Hatteras, is expected to move west-northwest towards the North
Carolina coast. A turn toward the northwest and a decrease in forward
speed is expected today and a slow northwestward motion into Tuesday. On the
forecast track, the center of the cyclone will pass offshore of the
North Carolina Outer Banks late Tuesday and Tuesday night. At this time,
Tropical Depression Eight is forecast to become a tropical storm tonight.

The primary impact will be heavy rain and the threat for localized
flash flooding, mainly along the Outer Banks. Rainfall amounts of 1 to
3 inches are expected 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.

Minor storm surge flooding is possible with water levels 1 to 2 feet
above ground level. This would mainly be over the areas adjacent to
the southern Pamlico Sound and beaches north of Cape Lookout.

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

* wind:
prepare for hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across the Outer Banks.
Potential impacts in this area include:
    - damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored
      Mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about.
    - Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or
      uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are
      shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - A few roads impassable from debris, particularly within urban
      or heavily wooded places. Hazardous driving conditions on
      bridges and other elevated roadways.
    - Scattered power and communications outages.

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

* Surge:
prepare for locally hazardous surge having possible limited impacts
across the Outer Banks. 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.
    - Moderate beach erosion. Heavy surf also breaching dunes, mainly
      in usually vulnerable locations. Strong rip currents.
    - Minor to locally moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks,
      and piers. A few small craft broken away from moorings.

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

* Flooding rain:
prepare for locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts across the Outer Banks. Potential
impacts include:
    - localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations.
    - Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter currents.
      Small streams, creeks, canals, and ditches may become swollen
      and overflow in spots.
    - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in usually
      vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding of water
      occurs 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 additional impacts are anticipated at this time
across eastern North Carolina.

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

* other preparedness information:
now is the time to check your emergency plan and take necessary
actions to secure your home or business. Deliberate efforts should be
underway to protect life and property. Ensure that your emergency
supplies kit is stocked and ready.

When making safety and preparedness decisions, do not focus on the
exact forecast track as there are inherent forecast uncertainties
which must be taken into account.

If you live in a place that is particularly vulnerable to high wind,
such as a Mobile home, an upper floor of a high rise building, or on
a boat, plan to move to safe shelter. Take enough supplies for you
and your family for several days.

If you live in a place particularly vulnerable to flooding, such as
near the ocean or a large Inland Lake, in a low lying or poor
drainage area, in a valley or canyon, or near an already swollen
river, plan to move to safe shelter on higher ground

Always heed the advice of local officials and comply with any orders
that are issued. Do not needlessly jeopardize your life or the lives
of others.

When securing your property, outside preparations should be conducted
as soon as possible before conditions deteriorate. The onset of
strong gusty winds and heavy rain can cause certain preparedness
activities to become unsafe.

Be sure to let friends and other family members know of your
intentions and whereabouts for surviving the storm. For emergency
purposes, have someone located away from the threatened area serve as
your Point of contact. Share vital contact information with others.
Keep cell phones handy and well charged.

Be a good samaritan and check on those who may not be fully aware of
the situation or who are unable to make personal preparations.

Visitors to the area should become familiar with nearby surroundings.
If you are a visitor, know the name of the County or Parish in which
you are located and where it is relative to current watches and
warnings. If staying at a hotel, ask the management staff about their
onsite disaster plan. Listen for evacuation orders, especially
pertaining to area visitors.

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