Double Storm Threat

We have obviously had it way too easy, weather-wise for a long time. Folks on America’s East Coast have enjoyed as many hurricanes as we can stand. In the past, we have proven to be strong and stood our ground. In my 70 years plus on the Virginia Coast I have learned what to do and what to expect. Guess what! The “anti” has just been upped. We may get a bigger challenge than we have ever had. If you open your Google Earth, you will see a swirling little icon right above Haiti that represents Hurricane Matthew. If you click on the icon you will get graphs that display wind speed, direction, and probable path. However, there is another swirling icon NE of Matthew. This one represents Hurricane Nicole. Smaller, but still powerful. Before Nicole developed there was a good chance that Matthew would follow most storm paths and drift on out to sea. Not in this case. Nicole is pushing Matthew into the coastline. My concern is will these two storms collide? How powerful will their combined winds be. Let us all who live in SE United States keep our eyes on these storms. They may be like none we have ever experienced.

No, but one influenced the other by holding it against the coastline.

We are far enough inland in western NC that we'll have winds and I do hope some rain, we desparetly need it. However our prayers are with those in the eastern part of the state. SC schools are closed and manitory evacuations go into effect tomorrow. Prayers for your and your area as well.

Thank you. We are doing a lot of "beseeching" as well.

My understanding is that Nicole is no threat to the US

Florida has endured many storms. We're familiar with preparations. Prayer continues to go out and up! Be blessed.

That would be bad. Hopefully Nicole and Matthew do not mate so to speak.

Matthew is strong enough on it's own. Hope everyone is prepared for it! Hopefully Nicole stays away!

Shame on Nicole, pushing Matthew to do something he wouldn't otherwise have done. And shame on Matthew for letting her push him around! Stay safe!

I am wondering just how bad it will get, I need to check out how far the storm is going inland in Florida.
