NC officials warn of hurricane impact inland

Friday, May 31st, 2013

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – State officials are reminding North Carolina residents that hurricanes don’t limit their damage to the coast and that even a smaller storm or one that doesn’t make landfall can cause damage.

Gov. Pat McCrory discussed hurricane preparedness at a news conference Thursday with Kieran Shanahan, secretary of the state Department of Public Safety.

McCrory said hurricanes can track inland, as Frances and Ivan did in 2004, bringing heavy rain and causing deadly landslides in the mountains.

Shanahan said residents should take all storms seriously, regardless of their size. He pointed to Hurricane Irene, which struck the North Carolina coast in 2011 as a Category 1, but caused some of the worst flooding that many counties near the coast had seen in nearly a century.

The Atlantic hurricane season begins Saturday.
