Matthew moving along the North Carolina coast – once it exits, the freshwater flooding event begins and could be dangerous

Updated: 6:45 PM ET Oct 8

I am back in my office and home from a grueling but successful trip to Florida to intercept hurricane Matthew. I will go over the data collected etc. at a later time. Right now, the focus is shfiting to the threat of record inland flooding from excessive rain fall as a result of Matthew interacting with a trough of low pressure. Please watch the video discussion below and for interests in the eastern North Carolina region and parts of NE South Carolina, you need to be ready for this flooding. It will happen over the next few days and has potential to exceed the record set by Floyd in 1999. I will have another video update early tomorrow afternoon.
