Hurricane Florence

The slow-moving storm Hurricane Florence is lashing parts of the East Coast and is expected to dump 20-30 inches of rain in parts of North and South Carolina through the weekend. If affected, share updates on your market and how your stations are responding here.

Cumulus/Wilmington VP/MM Eric McCart: We started simulcasting across all five of our stations at 10am Thursday (9/13) and have been going since. We're not quite halfway through the storm right now and it's moving at about 5mph, so there's a lot ahead of us. Flooding is already a problem, especially along the coastline and along the Cape Fear River. And it will likely get worse as we get into next week and the rivers begin to crest. We have about 12 employees hunkered down in the studios who are well-supplied, which is good because we're on backup generators at the towers and at the studios. We'll have to refuel them at some point, which could get dicey since the outages are so significant. We're fortunate that we had a good plan going in, and have a staff that's dedicated to doing what we do as broadcasters, and that's give people good information to help them make good decisions.

Colonial WJXY/Myrtle Beach, SC PD Christy Andrulonis: Myrtle Beach is seeing exactly what you're seeing on TV. It's just really a mess and Carolina Country 93.9 WMIR is off right this minute. We're hoping to get on generator power soon. Fayetteville has escaped the high winds, though there are a few trees down and a few roofs blown off. The bigger problem is going to be flooding because low-lying areas are already seeing standing water. All American Country 100.1 WFAY has stayed on the air throughout the storm.
