Message From The New Bern Grand Marina Yacht Club on September 11, 2018 - The Marina Is Now At Capacity.
We'd like to thank everyone for all their efforts to prepare for the incoming storm. Let's keep pushing forward and finish strong so we are in the best position to survive Florence.
Currently as of 8 am, the storm track is just to the east of New Bern, which puts us in the heart of the storm. Hurricane force winds are stretching out 50 miles from the eye and that could expand if the strengthening continues. Winds are at 130 mph but the storm went through an eye restructuring (when the eyewall of the storm rebuilds itself) and could intensify. Surge projections according to local news are between 6-12 feet. Hopefully being upriver will help lessen the blow, but we must prepare for the worst as a storm this size cannot be ignored, but respected.
The problem is the storm is expected to squat and stay awhile. That means that most marinas in eastern NC will go through multiple tidal rotations and fluctuations. What could be a smaller surge could double on top of what is already in the marina. We encourage all boaters to take warning and not stay on your boat.
This is a 72 hours notice. We are now in a Hurricane Watch and need all to make sure you are making proper arrangements.
Be safe and know that our prayers are with each of you!
