Here's what's happening preparations for hurricane Florence and its impact on the Carolina coast stretch all the way to the bay area. KCBS reporter Holly Kwon tells us a specialized rescue team based out of Oakland left for North Carolina early this morning. A team of sixteen from California task force for activated by FEMA to bring six swift water rescue boats to where up to two feet of rains expected Oakland. Fire battalion chief Robert manages the team and says when it's fire season here. It's hurricane season there. You know, when you see the building, and you know, that there's a chance new start getting everything ready if this was complete surprise, it would take longer to get to get rolling and get out the door. They should be able to make it in advance of Florence making landfall. If at all also, but we like to be there before it hits. However, if we don't what we'll do is. We'll find a place of shelter until the storm passes over and then we'll get back on the road and get to where we needed the Oakland team is made up of fire personnel from Oakland. Alameda, Livermore, Santa Rosa and Fremont fire departments as well as Alameda, and contra Costa counties, deployment could last as long as three weeks, depending on the storm's impact in Oakland.
