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.
