Will Hurricane Irma hit Myrtle Beach? Here's what the latest track says

Meteorologists say high clouds from approaching Hurricane Irma should begin filtering into the Rock Hill area by Sunday afternoon, with off-and-on rain arriving Monday morning.

The vast majority were in Florida.

The governor also authorized up to 5,000 Georgia National Guard members to respond to the storm and expanded a state of emergency to 30 southeast Georgia counties. A large storm surge will inundate coastal communities on this side of the storm as well. As weather conditions improve, restoration efforts will accelerate, but it could take an extended period of time for all customers to be restored.

"People are traveling north to escape the hurricane's path, but as they travel they're finding all of the hotels are full", said Dan Owens, who is in charge of setting up the Greensboro shelter for the Red Cross.

Meanwhile shocked Florida residents are returning to their shattered homes as millions are left without power and roofs have been ripped off homes. Browne said almost every building was damaged.

"We're hoping to be able to ride it out here", Tom Lozen said. He said nearly every mobile home park in the Keys had overturned homes.

There is concern for serious flooding problems across Georgia and the Carolinas from Irma, according to Dr. Joel N. Myers, founder, president and chairman of AccuWeather.

The effects of Irma in SC are expected to include periods of heavy rain that may lead to flooding, strong winds to tropical storm force or greater, and isolated tornadoes.

Overall, the potential storm-related increase in gas buying in the coming days combined with delivery delays will likely cause gas prices to continue increasing into the weekend. St. Marys police Lt. Shannon Brock said piers and boat docks were heavily damaged and many boats sunk. Maximum sustained winds are near 105 miles per hour with higher gusts.

Irma's center was about 25 miles (40 kilometers) northeast of the heavily populated Tampa-St.

By Thursday night, the U.S. National Hurricane Center expects the storm will close in on the Turks and Caicos and the southern Bahamas. "We encourage GPA staff and our neighbors to heed Governor Deal's warning and evacuate ahead of the storm".

The Hurricane Center's latest track has the storm making landfall over South Florida on Sunday.

Irma made landfall for a second time on Sunday at Marco Island. Irma is a category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.

Originally from Louisiana but now based in Hamptonville, North Carolina, she said she knows what it feels like to have to evacuate.

Hurricane Irma is expected to bring heavy rains and winds to Georgia and Georgia Power has released tips to help keep you and your family safe.

This means impacts will be low for central North Carolina. Another Red Cross office is setting up similar sites in the western part of the state. Interstate 16 eastbound will be reversed from Savannah to Dublin so that all lanes of the highway will head away from the coast toward Macon.

Cumberland, Hoke, Moore and Robeson counties are included in a Wind Advisory that goes into effect at noon on Monday.

"Please be prepared to be without electricity for a few days due to high winds and trees taking out utility lines".
