NHC said in their discussion that there have been numerous reports of 40-50kt gust in central and eastern SC, not doubting them at all but anybody on here feel those or had any issues?

That sounds about right. I checked through a lot of SC stations and most recorded peak gusts 45-55mph range. Here's a link to check the stations, just change it to SC and hit refresh map, then click on the station you want and it shows the peak gust.

Quite a few stations in southern NC gusting near or just above TS force. Shelby NC now gusting to 37mph and is a key one to watch along with areas near Charlotte.

Statesville, NC gusting near TS force now. Everything is lining up quite well with the 3km and HRRR so far. Next few hours are key. Saw a report of 52mph gust in Zirconia, NC as well just south of the Hendersonville area.

Should see a pressure drop of a few mb, signifying its transitioning to EX tropical. Right?

I can see the trees moving back n forth now pretty good last half hour up by the airport. But nothing out of ordinary. And its been pouring the rain. Thinking center circulation has to get off to our east then the wind event advertised on models will come sweeping in.

Guess that depends on what we consider massive, according to the outage maps and reports nearly 250,000 without power across those two states.
So how is everyone’s power holding up I haven’t seen any real massive outages in Georgia or SC

Having problems trying to load the gif from TT here on mobile, but it's looking like that trailing band is already intensifying (right word?). This is gonna get ugly, I've already seen gusts over 20mph here, and the sustained has definitely picked up as well.
