    Hurricane Florence on track to hit East Coast as major storm later this week

    Grocery stores are restocking shelves with water and bread, and supply stores are selling a lot of plywood and generators Monday as East Coast communities prepare for Hurricane Florence to strike hard later this week.

    Forecasters say Florence could mount a direct, devastating hit on North and South Carolina as the most powerful storm to hit the area in three decades.

    It's a good thing all those people don't live in California, because they have earthquakes there!

    A Category 4 hurricane is heading toward Washington. So are the Cubs. Here are 5 things to know about Thursday’s makeup game.

    Thursday’s afternoon makeup game between the Cubs and Nationals is still on schedule in Washington in spite of Hurricane Florence’s approach.
    According to the radio this morning the Cubs are seriously considering forfeiting the game to not have to fly into harm's way.

    Be safe Robin. We werw in the same boat last year at this time with Irma and we dodged a bullet. Let's hope you are just as lucky.

    Yikes. Evacuate early, if need be.
