Hurricane Ian regains strength, threatens Carolinas

RALEIGH — Hurricane Ian cut a swath across Florida as a category 4 hurricane and nearly a category 5.  As it crossed Florida is slowed to a tropical storm, but has regained energy in the warm waters of the Atlantic.

Over the next several days, the Carolina coast will be battered with hurricane and tropical storm strength winds.

The North Carolina Medical Society is reminding it’s members and all citizens to take precautions now and make plans for you, your business, and your family as soon as possible.

The Red Cross has compiled a plan for what you should be doing at the storm approaches.  You can see it here.

The staff of NCMS wants you to be safe and to reach out to us if we can be of any assistance.  North Carolina will likely see winds up to 70 miles per hour, inland flooding, and coastal storm surge up to 5 or more feet.

We are here to help you in any way possible.
