As Florence bears down on Southern NC and South Carolina, Corolla is experiencing tropical storm conditions. It has not started to rain yet, (9:50 AM). The ocean is out of control with surf in the 10′ range. The wind is blowing at 27 mph which is low for an incoming hurricane. Remember, when it gets this rough, it becomes hard to see if any lumber that might be pulled off the beach. Put surfing on hold till ocean cleans up. Watch out for floating debris: NOTE: COROLLA SURF SHOP WANTS TO SEE THE TOMATO PATCH 0PEN ASAP. GREAT FOOD AND STAFF. GARY, COROLLA SURF SHOP. AFTERNOON POST:  I JUST TOOK THESE PICTURES. 1st choice THIS IS A VIDEO I JUST RECORDED! GARY
