State emergency management officials are reminding North Carolinians to stay tuned to local media and NOAA weather radios today as heavy rains and strong winds move across the state.
A powerful cold front is expected to produce some heavy showers, as well as strong and potentially damaging wind gusts.
Wind advisories are already in place for nearly the entire state until early Thursday morning.
"Our emergency managers at the state and local level have been working with meteorologists and are closely monitoring the weather," said Department of Public Safety Secretary Kieran Shanahan.
"They are an experienced team and ready to respond to any emergencies."
Shanahan recommended that people take a few minutes to put away those items around the yard that could become flying objects. Trash cans, lawn furniture, children's toys or other such items that could be picked up by strong wind gusts should be placed inside, under the deck or up against the house.
Meteorologists advise that residents may see damaging wind gusts without lightning and thunder.
