Hermine will track northeastward across far northeastern portions of eastern North Carolina today then stall off the mid Atlantic coast into next week. Impacts from Hermine are winding down across eastern NC. Rain will continue to taper off today as Hermine lifts northeast away from eastern NC. Tropical storm force winds will remain possible for the Outer Banks and counties adjacent to the Albemarle Sound through this morning. Inland locations may see an occasional gust to tropical storm force. There will be large waves and minor to locally moderate beach erosion along the entire coast.

PUBLIC NOTICE: A recent shutdown of a pipeline servicing the North Carolina region due to a fuel leak has resulted in fluctuating fuel supplies and occasional run-outs across the base, air station and local community. These sporadic fuel conditions are expected to persist no longer than three weeks as fuel managers coordinate delivery from alternate sources while repairs to the pipeline are made.  We do not anticipate any long-term gas shortages at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune or Marine Corps Air Station New River.  We may occasionally experience brief outages at some locations, but do not expect our fuel supply to be impacted in a major way. The patience of all residents is appreciated as we work through this situation.

REMINDER: Reports of power outages are beginning to trickle in. Please keep the below in mind.

During a tropical storm and hurricane, wind may blow loose or dead tree limbs or entire trees onto the power lines causing the lines to touch and short out, fall to the ground, or possibly even break the lines and poles resulting in a power outage.

Heavy rains may also cause flooding in certain areas. Floods can cause damage to both above-ground and underground electrical equipment. To prevent major damage to the equipment, utility technicians may need to shut it down resulting in a power outage affecting service to some residents.

In our increasingly digital world, you should take steps to keep your phone and devices charged to assist with staying connected and informed.

1) Charge your devices now before the power potentially goes out.

2) Have a backup plan to charge your devices: Portable USB battery charger, Power Inverter for your car, or use your laptop battery to charge your devices over USB.

3) Close unnecessary apps. The more apps that continue to run the faster your battery will be drained.

Please continue to monitor local media outlets for the latest information on any changes in potential impacts from this storm, and please be prepared for the possibility of potential changes in the track of this storm.

FROM THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE: At 5 p.m. [EDT], the center of Tropical Storm Hermine was located by NOAA Doppler radar and surface observations inland over southern South Carolina near latitude 33.0 North, longitude 80.5 West. Hermine is moving toward the northeast near 20 mph and this motion is expected to continue through Sunday with a gradual decrease in forward speed during that time. On the forecast track, the center of Hermine will move across coastal South Carolina this evening, move across coastal North Carolina tonight and Saturday morning, and move offshore of the North Carolina coast by Saturday afternoon.

Maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph with higher gusts. Little change in strength is expected tonight and early Saturday while the center of Hermine remains over land. Strengthening is forecast after the center moves offshore, and Hermine could be near hurricane intensity by late Sunday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 185 miles, mainly to the south and east of the center.

Interests elsewhere along the United States northeast coast should monitor the progress of this system.
