News 8 in hurricane zone as Florence moves in

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) — Conditions were deteriorating Thursday with things only expected to get worse ahead of Hurricane Florence. Forecasters are predicting days of potentially disastrous rain and wind.

News 8 is getting first-hand accounts of the dangers from our crew members who are in the hurricane zone providing assistance to other news stations.

Our KFMB show director Kaz Alavi has been out in the elements.

“People are still out,” said Kaz. “The hurricane is really starting to kick up.”

KFMB photojournalist Tim Blodgett has been all along the affected coast, now in Nags Head, NC.

"Right now, it is getting a little wild here - the waves are getting really high, the surf is going nuts,” said Tim. “There is nobody on the beach.”

While inside Norfolk's WVEC TV station, wall-to-wall Florence coverage continues.

"[I’m] here to aid and assist the directing and production within the station,” said Kaz.

Kaz also shared images of a Virginia grocery store wiped clean of necessities.

Now both News 8 crews will continue to work and wait for Hurricane Florence to touch down.

“[We’re] here to help and here to do whatever we can,” said Kaz.
