Hurricane Florence aims for the Carolinas
Grocery stores are restocking shelves with water and bread, and supply stores are selling a lot of plywood and generators Monday as East Coast communities prepare for Hurricane Florence to strike hard later this week.
The National Weather Service upgraded Florence to a Category 3 storm in its 11 a.m. update. Florence now has maximum sustained winds of 115 mph, and gusts up to 140 mph, making it a major hurricane capable of doing "devastating" damage.
Further strengthening is expected, as Florence moves toward North and South Carolina, where it could unleash its fury as the most powerful storm to hit the area in three decades.
We are expecting delays due to this storm coming in on the SE coast. Please make sure to contact your Logistics Manager if you have any questions or concerns. We will keep you posted and they will let you know of any specific delays and future catch up with moving your freight.
If you are in the affected area, please be safe.
