It is moving pretty fast for a hurricane that is good. That is an oxymoron as IMO there is nothing good about one.
Pray it doesn’t stall!
Remember a lot of hurricane related deaths occur after the storm has passed. Nothing is normal.
Be super careful in the cleanup lots of injuries and death then as well.
Lost a cousin in Rita cleanup.

There are several nuke plants in the bullseye. It won't be like the hurricane that past over Turkey Point in Florida. Florence is going to affect many of them. Loss of Offsite Power (LOOP) is going to render many declaring Unusual Events. Operations and Maintenance personnel cannot evacuate. They have to stay. This is not pretty.

While I am relieved that the brunt of this thing won't be as bad in our area as had originally been expected, we're still supposed to get some heavy rains and have prepared for the worst. I'm fortunate, as I have a pasture, on high ground, that I will be utilizing. As for the coastline, 'officials' had started to (try to get) people to evacuate those coastal areas yesterday. Our local radio folks have mentioned livestock and wondered what people do about it. In other areas, some folks have been offering up a pasture here & there if people need them.
I hope & pray for the folks that are going to be affected directly by this Florence, and I hope more people take it seriously and get to safety. As for the livestock, I'm sure for those who can move them to safer grounds, they will & have and for those that are unable to, I hope their animals make it through. All I can think about is what greybeard went through with his cows.
