WEATHER ALERT: All Wind and Coastal Flood Warnings Discontinued

All wind and coastal flood warnings were discontinued around 7:00 a.m. Thursday morning.

The storm that brought the strong winds yesterday is moving quickly away from the east coast. With it's departure, the winds have dropped off significantly.

Dare County says all of its primary roads are now open, including Highway 12, north of Rodanthe. The county says while the roads may be open, drivers should still watch out for standing water that remains in some places.

Authorities say some secondary roads continued to be covered with water, mainly in the Salvo and Avon areas.

Schools in Dare County are closed, and students will have to attend classes on Saturday to make up the lost day.

Winds will run from 10-20mph, with a few gusts over 30 mph on the Outer Banks. There may still be some over wash on the Outer Banks through mid morning, but that should recede by midday.

Some of the Yesterday's peak wind gusts were:

Havelock 59 mph
Swan Quarter 54 mph
Beaufort 51 mph
Goldsboro 50 mph
Frisco 49 mph
Newport 48 mph
Rocky Mount 47 mph
Greenville Studio 47 mph
Washington 43 mph
Kenansville 43 mph
Greenville Airport 38 mph
Jacksonville 38 mph
Kinston 36 mph

    Brandon, you out there anywhere? I hear there is a chance of snow Friday night and Saturday morning? What do you think of it?

    I will say to the teacher and her comment about how hard teachers work, you get the pay. I was a State employee for 30 yrs, not in Education, and had to see teachers get the big raises when the rest of us got much smaller percentages. That has happened for yrs. Believe me, I work just as hard as any teacher and longer day hrs than a teacher, on call weekends. So please don't expect me to feel sorry for any teacher. Try working in a world other than education and see how it looks from here.

    Well, Sars, judging by the intelligence of these kids today, I don't any of you are doing that great of a job. If you want to gripe, complain to the NEA.

    If you had any idea all of the paperwork that we have to do in in order to teach your children you would understand the answer to your question. Teachers get very few workdays that do not have scheduled meetings, trainings, evaluation training, and all kinds of things to use up much needed time. Not to mention that we have to do all of the lesson plans for multiple students-in my case I teach 25 classes a week, over 550 students. That's a lot of planning time that is done on my time late into the evenings (like right now I am working on lessons!) So, please understand the need for these early release days so that the teachers can continue to do the excellent jobs that they do meeting the needs of all our children.

    We are blessed not to have all the snow, ice and blizzards that are west and north of us. I pray for temperatures to bring spring soon, and for safety of all.

    Some dislike stupid people, but most dislike hysterical people. What's next closing schools for a mosquito infestation? My goodness Americans have become afraid of their own shadows. Classic example of mass hysteria is what happened in King NC with a hysterical city council and a hysterical police chief.

    Just at the point of hearing about this from one of my sons, I had to leave in a middle of a meeting held in Elizabeth City and drive back down to pick them up from school. My wife was working and could'nt get off. This weather has caused a big inconvenience, but the safety for the kids was more important. The winds are just plain awful today and I just got back to the house FOR GOOD, doing the rest of the work from the house and waitin for my lovely wife to get back around 4:30.
