WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - As of 4 p.m. Monday, the BP gas station at 3706 Shipyard Boulevard was out of gas. Store employees say a truck is expected in around 7 p.m. but they anticipate that fuel will go quickly, too.

The BP station at 1301 Military Cutoff reported a critical fuel shortage as well due to Hurricane Florence.

"We are almost out of premium and regular but we're expecting a truck in just a couple hours," said Nadine Schrock, assistant store manager.

Residents are encouraged to fill their gas tanks as Hurricane Florence continues to threaten the Carolinas as a Category 4 storm.

WECT will continue to monitor the gas supply with updates on wect.com and the WECT mobile app.
