ALG Connect Weather Alert: Hurricane Dorian Battering South Carolina

Hurricane Dorian Battering South Carolina, North Carolina With Flooding Rain, Storm Surge, High Winds, Tornadoes


Hurricane Dorian is now unleashing its siege of storm surge flooding, rainfall flooding, high winds and tornadoes as it tracks near the coasts of South Carolina, North Carolina and southeast Virginia through Friday. Tornado watches are in effect for parts of northern South Carolina and eastern North Carolina through late afternoon and early evening. Rundown of the current watches and warnings, according to the National Hurricane Center are from the South Carolina coast to Poquoson, Virginia. This includes the Pamlico and Albemarle sounds and the Neuse and Pamlico rivers in North Carolina, as well as Hampton Roads, Virginia. The hurricane warnings in South Carolina include Hilton Head Island, Charleston and Myrtle Beach. Wilmington, Morehead City and Nags Head are included in the warning for North Carolina.


The center of Dorian will pass near the South Carolina coast. A landfall of the center in South Carolina can't be ruled out, which would bring the most damaging winds and storm-surge flooding. However, these impacts will also occur even if Dorian's center does not make a landfall. Heavy rain will also lead to flooding in this area. Coastal flooding, wind and rainfall flooding will worsen and spread from south to north in eastern North Carolina, then into the Virginia Tidewater and the southern Delmarva Peninsula Thursday night. By Friday, Dorian's center will track near, if not make a landfall over, eastern North Carolina, bringing storm-surge flooding, damaging winds and flooding rain as far north as southeastern Virginia. By Friday night, the center of Dorian will move into the Atlantic Ocean, with improving conditions in North Carolina and southeastern Virginia.


We recognize the severe impact that current conditions are having on our customers and we are committed to restoring service levels as quickly as possible. As a result of these weather issues, the ALG Client Service Team will send daily updates as we monitor the progress and track job level impact.
