That's according to a Red Cross news release.

 

A hurricane watch has been issued for the North Carolina coast and the Red Cross has opened shelters in the state as evacuation orders go into effect.

In addition, more than 200 Red Cross mobile feeding vehicles are heading towards the coast to help people in the path of the storm, the release says.
