Hurricane Arthur is the type of storm hurricane forecasters dread — it is intensifying, gaining speed and tracking much closer to land than originally anticipated. Rather than grazing the Outer Banks of North Carolina as a strong tropical storm or minimal Category 1 hurricane, it is likely to make landfall as a Category 2 — or possibly even Category 3 — storm, with maximum sustained winds of around 100 miles per hour. This means there will be much stronger winds , higher waves, and more damaging storm surge flooding than many emergency managers and homeowners planned for when they made their decisions of whether or not to board up and evacuate.
