Wilmington -- A hurricane warning has been issued for some counties along the north east portion of North Carolina's coast. Governor McCrory and state emergency officials held a press conference Wednesday as Tropical Storm warnings cover the entire North Carolina coast.

Governor McCrory said, "Don't put your stupid hat on," reiterating his message from winter storms. Adding, "Usually most injuries occur right before a storm or right after a storm."

Work crews in the coastal divisions are checking equipment and topping off fuel tanks. Along the Outer Banks, crews are staging front end loaders, motor graders and bulldozers along N.C. 12 in Ocracoke, Rodanthe and Pea Island, south of the Bonner Bridge, in Dare and Hyde counties. Crews have inspected emergency ferry docks to ensure the sites are ready if needed. The ferry division anticipates that service could be affected along its routes from south to north as the storm gets closer.
