STORMTRACK 3: TD Beryl inches closer, heavy rain starts tonight

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Beryl is now on the move and is pushing through South Carolina. The storm remains a tropical depression but is still well organized. It will accelerate into southeastern North Carolina overnight. 

Here’s what we expect: After midnight, the start of the tropical rains from Beryl will arrive in the area. Expect heavy downpours from time to time, especially along the coast. As the storm moves overhead, some modest wind gusts up to 25-30 mph will be possible – but this is not a major threat. The period of heavy rain should last through midday Wednesday, and if things pan out just right, we could end up with several inches (1-3") of total rain. A Flood Watch is in effect through Wednesday evening.

By late Wednesday afternoon, the storm will be offshore and dry air will begin to build into the area. This will leave us with sunshine for Thursday. 

Right now, there are currently no tropical watches/warnings in effect for our area. 

Stay tuned to WWAY for updates, and head to Hurricanes 101.

House gives final approval to anti-annexation bills

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

RALEIGH, NC (WWAY) — The state House of Representatives has given final approval to two bills blocking forced annexation in North Carolina.

This afternoon the House passed House Bill 5 by a vote of 66-50, which overturns the annexation of Monkey Junction, areas around Southport and several others around the state. Those cities cannot try again for 12 years to try and annex the same areas.

The House also passed House Bill 925, which gives voters in an annexed area the chance to vote on a proposed annexation. The bill passed 72-45. That’s a key number, because the 72 votes in favor represents 3/5 of the full House. If the governor vetoes the bill, the House would need a 3/5 majority to override it. The Senate would need 30 votes for an override. The bill passed that chamber on its final reading 30-14.
