Hurricane Dorian UPDATE #14 – 09/06/2019 at 00:16hrs UTC – **NOW** the hurricane’s eye is passing Myrtle Beach and will be near Wilmington in hours; most of North Carolina is experiencing very heavy rainfall (see AccuWeather’s image, below).
Compare Aug 30 to Sept 5 on the seismograph in New Hope, SC – note that it appears almost entirely black. The amplitude of the seismic traces are so large that the signal overprints itself at each hour of time. Dorian’s 100+ mph winds and high storm surge are causing the dramatic increase in ground motion recorded on the seismograph. At approximately 13:00hrs UTC (9:00 am EDT), the eye of the storm was passing by Charleston, SC.
