As Hurricane Florence whistles its way toward the Carolina coast, many people are preparing for the worst - as they should. It's the old refrain - better to have something and not need it than to need something and not have it.
As Greensboro preps, a lot of stores are seeing their shelves sit empty as employees work to restock them. WFMY has sent crews out to many local stores in an effort to help you navigate what's available and where! Please note - we could really use your help to keep track! If you see any stores with water - or empty shelves, you can message us here or shoot us a tweet (even an email if you're into that)!
The TARGET SUPERSTORE in Kirkwood has run out of water. It expects to be restocked Thursday morning pending the weather.
The TARGET SUPERSTORE on New Garden still has water but is limiting it to two cases per person. Thanks to Haylee for the information.
The TARGET SUPERSTORE along Wendover has water. Thanks to Stacia for the help.

Remember that price gouging is illegal in emergency situations. In fact, after Hurricane Harvey and Irma, some gas stations in Texas were forced to pay fines after being found guilty of price gouging.
When a State of Emergency is activated, legal protections against price gouging come into play.
If you see unfair prices, here's how you can report it.

That's what we've got so far. Some viewers encourage fulling gallon zipper plastic bags with water and then freezing it if that's your thing!
