National Hurricane Center's projected path of Hurricane Florence as of 8:00 a.m. Thank you for staying informed.

Good Morning,

The National Hurricane Center released its Friday 8:00 a.m. update on the projected path of Hurricane Florence. The National Hurricane Center advises that Hurricane Florence is moving west-northwest at 6 miles per hour with maximum sustained winds of 90 miles per hour. 

Please continue to stay up-to-date on Hurricane Florence through official sources and avoid misinformation spread through social media. Beaufort County's residents and guests are encouraged to plan for potential storm impacts, which forecasts indicate could include minor coastal flooding, tropical storm force winds—over 39 miles per hour—downed trees and power outages.

Beaufort County is not under an evacuation order, all bridges are open and there are no current restrictions on driving. We remain prepared with resources standing by for deployment in the event of storm impacts. 

The Sheriff's Office, along with state and municipal governments will continue to keep you advised of developments with Hurricane Florence over the next few days. Our thoughts and prayers are with our neighbors to the north who are experiencing the effects of Hurricane Florence.  

We ask you to remain vigilant and monitor the storm's projected path through the National Hurricane Center  . The National Hurricane Center provides updates on the storm's path at 5:00 a.m., 8:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 2:00 p.m., 5:00 p.m., 8:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. daily.
