Get Ready for Hurricane Ian


Hurricane Ian is forecast to move up the spine of the Appalachians after it comes ashore at the southern tip of Florida. Prognosticators are already warning about the risk of landslides from the heavy rain, and that means us in Watauga County and all the rest of western North Carolina.

Just a reminder that Watauga County has one of the highest concentrations of landslide risks in the western mountains. The map below details them, published by the NC Department of Environmental Quality, UNC Asheville, and the state Geological Survey.
