    September 1 2010 by BSC Communications

    North Carolina Baptist Men (NCBM) are prepared for the possibility of responding to a storm threatening the North Carolina East Coast.

    The National Hurricane Center reports that Hurricane Earl, now a Category 3 storm, is expected to approach the coast by Friday morning. Maximum sustained winds are about 125 mph.

    Mandatory evacuation orders were issued for Ocracoke Island and Cape Lookout National Seashore. Dare County Emergency Management officials issued a mandatory evacuation order for all visitors to Hatteras Island.

    Gaylon Moss, NCBM Consultant for Disaster Relief and Volunteerism, said the necessary disaster relief equipment is ready and volunteers are ready to be dispatched.

    Moss has also contacted churches along the East Coast and NCBM partners who are prepared to help.
