Charlotte in Hurricane Elsa’s Path

7/7/2021 (Permalink)

Will Hurricane Elsa Hit Charlotte?

As hurricane Elsa moves out of the gulf and onto land, the path is predicted to include Charlotte, NC. Before the storm gets closer to Charlotte, NC, make sure you and your family are prepared for what could come. Keep reading to learn the strength of Elsa, where the storm is headed, and how you can prevent the possible damage Elsa may bring. 

The Strength of The Storm

With sustained winds of 63 mph as of Wednesday at 9:20 AM, residents of the Pineville, NC, area can expect to experience some wind in the coming days, however, the storm will likely be much less severe once it reaches North Carolina. While the storm is a category 1 hurricane while it hovers over the gulf, it is expected to lose strength and be classified as a tropical depression. 

Where Will The Storm Hit?

Elsa is expected to pass to the right of Matthews, NC. Because Charlotte, NC, will not be in the direct path of Elsa, less than 1 inch of rain is expected in the area. For more information on Elsa as the storm continues to get closer be sure to stay up-to-date with the Charlotte Observer

Will The Storm Cause Damage?

There is no way to know what the damage from a storm will be, but it is always smart to be prepared. Make sure you and your family stay safe during the storm, and remember, your home may need to be prepped for the storm as well. 

Keep Your Home Safe

Even though living in Charlotte, NC, means we don’t often think of storm-proofing when a hurricane is coming our way, there are still a few easy steps you should take. Preparing for a storm can help prevent severe damage to your home. Before Elsa gets closer, head outside and make sure that any toys and other objects are brought inside. Heavier items like furniture should be secured to the ground to prevent things from being blown around in the wind and breaking windows.
