There is a hurricane coming at the end of this week and during the upcoming weekend. Not a good time to be on the mountain but if you are going to be out than please be on the look out for large seemingly sturdy trees blowing down. During a hurricane a few years ago I was amazed to see huge trees near my home have their crowns being blown around to and fro like they were stalks of grass.
Streams may get too high to safely cross and some roads may be underwater. Helicopters will not be able to fly during the storm and SAR resources will very likely not be able to respond until some time after the storm passes. Even after the storm passes local roads and SNP fire roads will probably be blocked by tree debris. Plan on needing to self-rescue or to shelter-in-place with the understanding it may takee a day or two for any help to arrive.
DAY AFTER THE STORM
The air is often its clearest the day after a hurricane but expect high streams and blow-downs across your trails.
