    This was the bulletin from last night

    The National Weather Service has issued a public warning about the approaching storm. These are the exact words issued in the government alert:

    THIS HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BE AN HISTORIC STORM, WITH WIDESPREAD WIND
    DAMAGE AND POWER OUTAGES, INLAND AND COASTAL FLOODING, AND MASSIVE
    BEACH EROSION. THE COMBINATION OF THE HEAVY RAIN AND PROLONGED WIND
    WILL CREATE THE POTENTIAL FOR LONG LASTING POWER OUTAGES AND SERIOUS
    FLOODING.

    IF YOU ARE RELUCTANT [to evacuate], THINK ABOUT YOUR LOVED ONES, THINK ABOUT
    THE EMERGENCY RESPONDERS WHO WILL BE UNABLE TO REACH YOU WHEN YOU
    MAKE THE PANICKED PHONE CALL TO BE RESCUED, THINK ABOUT THE
    RESCUE/RECOVERY TEAMS WHO WILL RESCUE YOU IF YOU ARE INJURED OR
    RECOVER YOUR REMAINS IF YOU DO NOT SURVIVE.

    Do not beat me up about the caps the NWS put it out exactly like this Markww
