AAA Mid-Atlantic: Prepare Now, as Hurricane Florence Takes Aim at East Coast
Prepare for the worst and hope for the best – travelers, homeowners and motorists should use the next few days wisely.
PHILADELPHIA, PA (September 10, 2018) Hurricane season peaks today (September 10), just as Hurricane Florence is gaining strength and taking aim at the East Coast. The path of Hurricane Florence is almost certain to pose a serious danger for the U.S. East Coast where a direct hit is increasingly likely by mid- to late week. A hurricane of this predicted magnitude could cause heavy rainfall and bring strong winds that could knock down trees, power lines and cause widespread flooding.
The Delaware Valley may not take a direct hit from Hurricane Florence, however the area is likely to feel the Category 3 storm’s impact. Travelers, homeowners, vacation home owners, and motorists should take the time to prepare now for the potential impacts of the storm. Strong winds, heavy rains and flooding could cause havoc for travel plans, property and driving ability.
“Hurricanes are not always top of mind for Delaware Valley residents, however it appears as though we will feel the effects of Hurricane Florence in our area, though the exact impact is not yet clear,” says Jana L. Tidwell, manager of Public and Government Affairs for AAA Mid-Atlantic. “Now is the time to prepare. AAA urges travelers, homeowners, vacation/rental home owners, and motorists to take the next few days to prepare for the potential disruption and devastation a storm of this magnitude can cause.”
