Chapel Hill to appeal order on cell phone ban

Thursday, August 23rd, 2012

CHAPEL HILL, NC (AP) — Chapel Hill will appeal a judge’s order blocking the town from enforcing a ban on cell-phone use while driving.

Mayor Mark Kleinschmidt said Wednesday night the documents could be filed with the Court of Appeals within days.

Superior Court Judge Orlando Hudson on Aug. 3 said the legislature already has regulated the use of cell phones and the town could not impose more restrictions.

The town is also appealing the judge’s order blocking the town’s towing ordinance. Hudson said the towing ordinance was an unconstitutional regulation of trade.

The mayor said it could be spring before a decision is issued.

Isaac re-organizing now; turns NW this weekend

Thursday, August 23rd, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Isaac is just a weak tropical storm this morning, and is undergoing some re-organization. Even so, the storm is over extremely warm water with favorable winds that should allow for intensification over the next 2 days.

By tomorrow night, the storm will approach the Dominican Republic. This will be a key phase for the storm as the tall mountains of the island could possibly dramatically weaken, or even destroy Isaac. 

Is Isaac makes it through the islands alright, the storm will then near southern Florida by Sunday. No threats to us this weekend. 

Computer model solutions still remain highly varied beyond Monday, with some models suggesting a track into the Gulf of Mexico, Florida, or the Atlantic. The latest trends have been favoring a western track, but we are remaining cautious until the storm makes it through Hispaniola. We’re not in the clear yet.

Continue to track the daily progress with the StormTrack 3 Weather Team. This is a good time to revisit your hurricane plan and make sure you are ready for any potential threats as we near the heart of hurricane season.
