Even though Hurricane Florence has dropped to a Category 3 with sustained winds at 125 miles per hour, she’s still a major hurricane.  As WHQR’s Rachel Lewis Hilburn reports, the storm now looks like it might pass just south of Bald Head Island.

Hurricane Florence will bring more than high winds and torrential rains when it reaches the Cape Fear Region this week. It will also bring a storm surge.  It’s not just a coastal phenomenon.

Our listening area is now under a Hurricane Warning and officials across the region have declared multiple States of Emergency. Hurricane conditions, including very high winds, heavy rain and storm surge, are expected within 48 hours. 

The Poetry Foundation

Barbara McKenzie says everyone has a magical NPR moment-when you hear something on NPR that just knocks you off your feet and makes a huge impact on your mind, your heart, even your life. That moment for Barbara came when she heard poet Samuel Menashe on NPR's Weekend Edition. He was being interviewed because he received the Poetry Foundation's Neglected Masters Award

New Hanover County officials met with Emergency Management staff Monday morning to discuss plans for preparing for Hurricane Florence. The storm appears to be on a collision course with the Cape Fear region later this week, and is currently a oowerful category 4 hurricane.

Hurricane Florence has turned into a Category 4 storm -- which is a major hurricane.

By mid-morning on Monday, officials had announced the closing of New Hanover and Brunswick County Schools Tuesday through Friday.  In Brunswick County, officials have also issued mandatory evacuation orders for those in unincorporated areas who live in low-lying and flood-prone areas or substandard or mobile homes, beginning at daylight Tuesday.

Until recently, most classical music videos have been humdrum affairs. Musicians, in concert attire, earnestly produce their notes with eyes closed and heads tilted in a beatific expression, somewhere between a migraine and an attempt to channel Bach from the heavens.
