First-responder and utility crews from Michiana and around the state were in the Carolinas Thursday morning, awaiting the arrival of Hurricane Florence.
The massive storm was growing in size Thursday morning, while diminishing to a Category 2. It was also slowing down, suggesting that it will take a lot of time to dump massive amounts of rain when it makes landfall, along with a dangerous amount of storm surge.
Among the area volunteers is South Bend Fire Battalion Chief Chris Baker, who took a moment Thursday morning to speak with Jon Zimney on Michiana’s Morning News.
First, Jon spoke with Eben Brown from Fox News, who reported on the activity (or lack thereof) along the coast itself.
