Hurricane Florence: North Carolina residents urged to leave

Packing 105 miles per hour wind, Florence is still expected to make landfall early Friday near Wilmington, N.C. It is expected to slowly move west through central SC by Sunday morning.

Florence is expected to stall over the Carolinas and remain for almost a day, somewhat reminiscent of how Hurricane Harvey hovered above Houston, Texas, last year.

Florence is now expected to begin delivering tropical storm-force winds in the region by early Thursday, escalating to hurricane-force winds by late Thursday or early Friday.

Hurricane Florence crashed into the Carolinas as a giant, slow-moving storm on Friday, threatening catastrophic flooding while leaving scores in need of rescue from rising waters and hundreds of thousands without power.

The monster storm - which briefly flirted with category five status on its march across the Atlantic - was located roughly 170 miles southeast of Wilmington, North Carolina as of 8:00 a.m. EDT Thursday.

These same areas that are inundated with storm surge will also be hammered by damaging winds sustained at 50 to 70 miles per hour with gusts as high as 80 to 90 miles per hour - strong enough to damage homes and buildings, down trees and knock out power.

Authorities are warning USA coastal residents in the path of Hurricane Florence to evacuate now or be at the mercy of the Category 3 storm, which is expected to slow upon hitting the coast of the Carolinas on Thursday and ravage the region with storm surge, rainfall, and flooding.

About 5.25 million people live in areas under hurricane warnings or watches, and 4.9 million live in places covered by tropical storm warnings or watches, the National Weather Service said.

She has waded through her fair share of flood waters and withstood several hurricanes but decided that Florence would not be her next. Parts of North Carolina may see as much as 40 inches of rain and storm surges could be as high as 13 feet.

"Get out of its way, don't play games with it", said Mr Trump.

"On a scale of one to 10, I'm probably a seven in terms of worry, she said". Airlines canceled almost 1,000 flights and counting.

Homeless after losing her job at Walmart three months ago, 25-year-old Brittany Jones went to a storm shelter at a high school near Raleigh. The two hardware chains said they sent in a total of around 1100 trucks. High Surf Advisory for all beaches today.

Duke Energy, the nation's No. 2 power company, said Florence could knock out electricity to three-quarters of its 4 million customers in the Carolinas, and outages could last for weeks. "This is a attractive beach here I can't imagine how it's going to be when we come back", homeowner Sheryl Andrews said. Meanwhile inland regions of the Palmetto State, North Carolina and Virginia are expected to see 6-12 inches of rain, with up to two feet falling in isolated areas.

"There are lots of things they are interested in studying about the hurricane, so they have to get close to it", Smith said.

Florence is anticipated to move slowly over eastern South Carolina Friday night through Saturday night.

Computer models anticipating the path of the storm are varied, adding to the uncertainty.

Elder relatives carry as much weight as meteorologists in a tight-knit community of slave descendants on the SC coast. The hurricane centre said Florence will approach the coast on Friday and linger for a while before rolling ashore.

In Virginia, where about 245,000 residents were ordered to evacuate low-lying areas, officials urged them to stay in safer locations despite forecast changes showing Florences path largely missing the state.
