    For Anonymous...What cave have you been in? For your information evacuation of Ocracoke happened on Tuesday or Wednesday that is not the day of and lets get real your roadways were not parking lots on Thursday were they? The EMS Management team have been on this all week! Plans were in effect as early as Tuesday about how and when to evacuate the Cross Creek Nursing Home that is not the day of! Not only did they have everything in place but your VOLUNTEER Fire Fighters showed up to help get the Elderly residents on the transit buses where were you Anonymous? Don't guess you thought they needed your help just your OPINIONS. The VOLUNTEER Fire Fighters, EMS personnel have what a lot of you in Hyde County don't...MORALS, INTEGRITY, and COMPASSION! I say they are some of the finest examples of men and put alot of others to Shame!!! You should be applauding them cause you couldn't walk in their boots!!!!

    To Sarah...YOU GO GIRL!!! This is the most grumbling bunch of people I have ever heard. You are quick to complain but how many of you were out helping get ready for this hurricane? If you had been fired as EMS Director how many of you would have cared enough about the residents to come back to help them get through this? Answer: NONE OF YOU!!!!! You are quick to grumble and complain but yet when you need them you are the first to EXPECT them to be there no matter what. The EMS and Fire Dept. were ready to put their life on the line for you (for no pay!)but all you can do is take pot shots about where they eat etc. You all should be ashamed of yourselves (but I know you are not)One other question why aren't some of you volunteering if you think you could do a better job?

    Come on people there only trying to get a head start and avoid a similar Katrina situation.Not that the storm is as big but they are on a remote island with the only way in or out is by ferry, unless you have a boat.So Chill out. If they don't do it now it will be too late later and then you'll want to scream about that.

    Cynthia-Please explain yourself better. I am confused why you are so upset at EMS. You haven't been asked to evacuate yet so what "time" are you complaining about that you don't have? Haven't you been watching the news about Earl? Do you have to have "official warning" from the government before you prepare? Surely if you live on Ocracoke or the mainland of Hyde you know to prepare for a hurricane before the voluntary or manditory evacuations are announced. NC is not Louisiana. We do not wait for the government to save us. We save ourselves.

    Cynthia, Calm down, only the visitors are under a mandatory evacuation. If you would stay off the computer and quit making comments about not having time to prepare you might get a little more done!

    God will help us. He is the only one in control of Hyde County.

    Hey there Hyde County EMS personnel... I understand completely getting all the 'visitors' off Ocracoke ASAP in order to prepare for hurricane Earl, about all the Ocracoke homeowners who also need to prepare for the storm????Don't we pay taxes and contribute to the local economy? DON'T WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO CARE FOR OUR HOMES ON OCRACOKE AS WELL????? What good is a "reentry sticker" if we can't even use it to care for our homes prior to a hurricane???? Next time give us homeowners some time will ah??? How about a VOLUNTARY evacuation first then make it mandatory???? As of this writing we still have way more than 48 hours before Earl is scheduled to hit! I pray the storm stays out to sea, or better yet comes ashore as a nuisance storm and makes you all look like fools!!! Ya'll already look like a bunch of buffoons!! Wishing you the best forever and always. Take care and I hope ONLY YOU suffer dearly from this storm.
