I believe in preparation, ' Wright said. "If you are on the coast, there is still time to get out safely".

Almost 1000 prisoners in SC will not be moved from their cells, despite a mandatory evacuation order in the area.

Even with a slightly revised southward track, Hurricane Florence still poses a significant threat to central North Carolina and Alamance County.
