Gas shortages begin ahead of Hurricane Florence
Several gas stations in the east are without a full supply of gas ahead of Hurricane Florence.
Officials in Morehead City say that all gas stations except for the Walmart are currently out of gas.
In Swansboro, police say that the Walmart has premium and diesel supply only, but stores do plan to refill sometime on Tuesday.
The Swansboro Speedway and the HandyMart are both reportedly low on fuel levels. They have no current plans to receive more shipments.
Residents are urged to fill up their gas tanks on Tuesday and Wednesday, before Hurricane Florence makes landfall later this week
