9/11/2017 @ 10:15AM – Hurricane Irma Update. The storm has been downgraded to a tropical storm, but continues to put out heavy rains, and damaging winds in its pathway. As of 8AM, the center of circulation was still in northern Florida and headed through Georgia, Alabama and on to Tennessee before completely collapsing. Over the next several hours, lasting throughout the night and into tomorrow, our area will begin to see rainfall and some breezy conditions, even though the storm’s track will not come directly over us. During this period of time, there may still be some dead or weakened trees that will cause problems and some spotty power outages as a result. We do not anticipate widespread damages or impacts in North-Central North Carolina. Please report power outages to your power company. If you have a life-threatening emergency, please call 911 to report it. Unless conditions warrant, this will be the last update on Hurricane Irma.
