To all our friends in the SE US, please take care in light of the incoming hurricane Florence. Hopefully the next two right behind that one - Isaac and Helene - will head out to the North Atlantic.

AMEN for all of our southeast coastal members. Noticed in another forum that folks were offering storage if they had it for anyone who may be impacted to bring their car. I am just east of Memphis, but if needed I can offer up some enclosed spots I have to store up to 3 cars (temporarily). If others are closer to the southeast I also ask that you see if you can offer something up. Plenty of hotels in this area as well so you could drop the car here and stay close. Everyone be safe!

Heacock Insurance is providing the following advice to customers:



Dear Valued Customer,

With the impending Hurricane Florence in the Atlantic Ocean, I encourage you to take immediate steps to prepare for the high winds and torrential rain that has been predicted to accompany this dangerous storm. Although the final path has yet to be determined, now is the time to make plans.

If you feel your current storage location is not adequate to protect your car, we encourage you to seek an alternate location. One solution is an elevated parking garage where you can park your car in a central space. This will keep it safe from the rising waters while protecting your car from the rain.

Heacock Classic will also provide up to $250 in expense reimbursement for costs you may incur to move and protect your car.

For your personal safety, remember to never drive through flooded roads. Although you may think it�s safe, roads can become washed out and dangerous very quickly.

If you do have to report a claim, rest assured our claims department will be available 24 hours a day to respond to your needs.

Please feel free to contact me or one of the Heacock Classic team members if you have any questions.

Sincerely,
Jim Kruse
Director, Heacock Classic

Last year Irma was heading right for us, A few of my car buddies and I took our cars to Tampa International Airport. Parked up on middle of the 4th level for 3 days. Built like a bomb shelter and no way it would flood. 24 hour security for 12 bucks a day. Cars barely got dirty.

I've been twice in the US. First time was in august 1983, Texas, I saw what was an Hurricane.
Take care.

Hey Guys,
Thanks for the kind words, and it shows how wonderful this 7173 community really is.
I'm an hour away from Myrtle Beach and fortunately im on high ground, and everything is insured.
If you lived here long enough you know how to prepare, and the generator will keep the beer ice cold.
Please keep all the folks on the coast in SC, NC, VA in your prayers, this will be our Katrina.

I live in the Mountains of North Carolina but we still get lots of rain and wind from the hurricanes. I sat on my screened porch one night during one of the severe ones maybe 10 or 12 years back. I could hear the trees breaking and falling all around. The next morning I had to get to town to take care of some business and leave for Africa the next day. Every road I went down had trees across them some over 3' in diameter. For you metric guys about a meter in dia., lol. I did finally get to town and back but lots of damage.
I am one of those people that does not have insurance on home or the garage so I just cross my fingers.
They say there could be 20" of rain also and with the ground already wet the trees will for sure blow down.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

Just watched this link about florence... that's some nasty scary beast.

[For you metric guys about a meter in dia]
You did not continue for the conversion of the 20'' of water. I could convert inches to cm
but what's the measure? 20 inches per square area of what?

edit:As its not a volume.
found that in us rainfall measure 1 inch of rainfall equals 4.7 gallons of water per square yard
That's 324 liters per square meter. Really scary.

Salut Fabrice,
When I read 20"naturally I was thinking about half a meter per square meter.

yes me too, 50.8 cm, but then wondered what would be the collecting area to fill the tube.

That you think 1/2 cubic meter of water or bits less, that's still a hell lot of water. 
The next question is then how much time to fill it. So far sources found say its per hour unless a time scale is specified.
This adds even more perspective about what this monster is capable of.
