Okay.

Purrs for everyone in danger. I heard that people were being told to
write their names on their arms so their bodies could be identified, OMG.

Wow. That's totally incorrect.* I have been watching the news on many
channels and the National Hurricane Center online.* Keeping an eye on
the storm.* Nowhere, at no time, was anyone told to write their names on
their arms in case they were found dead.* Where did you come up with
that piece of misinformation?!

Jill


Well, perhaps the BBC is wrong, but I saw it on there. I saw an
American, sherriff sort of person say "put your names on your arms" on
BBC news.

Well, I sure didn't hear anything like that but I haven't seen every
channel (BBC not being one I get). I hope your family is safe.

Cannot speak to what you saw on BBC, but I saw a Facebook post the other day
illustrating how to
put your name and address on your pets leg in case they become separated.

It seems to me quite possible that some official told people to put
their names on their arms because those were people who had refused to
evacuate, and he was trying to scare them into doing so.

I'm sorry if it sounded like I was calling Tina a liar! I Googled it
and sure enough! I didn't hear it on any of the interviews or news
reports I watched (of course I couldn't watch all of them) so it sounded
odd.

From the BBC,* they are rarely wrong. They had a reporter in Wilmington
and that's what he said was advised, I saw it myself live on TV.

My apologies to you. I Googled it and you are correct. It just sounded
so odd. Mea culpa!

Thanks, Jill, I hope so too. The BBC had a reporter in Wilmington and
he also said that the residents have been told to write their names on
their arms. That made it even more horrifying to me. Like they were
expecting multiple deaths. It seems to be the rain that they're worried
about, more so than the wind and storm surge, because the hurricane is
so slow-moving they said there could be up to 60 inches. 5 feet of
rain! That would be impossible to deal with - it would be like a
tsunami. Purrs for everyone in its path. I saw the news yesterday, I
think they said 23 dead up to now :'(
Mother Nature can be very cruel.

Apology accepted. It did sound odd but it just proves the very severe
conditions that are going on in NC. That they thought that was necessary
is just awful.

Very severe. Even though the storm isn't in my area I've been watching
the reports. Purrs for you cousin and his family. If you haven't heard
from him I hope you will, very soon.
