Hurricane Florence Shifts Course, Will Make a 'Grand Tour' of Southeastern States

The National Hurricane Centre said it was a potentially catastrophic Category-4 storm, but was expected to keep drawing energy from the warm water and intensify to near Category 5, which means winds of 157 miles per hour or higher. "The latest warnings from the National Hurricane Center predict totals of up to 40 inches in isolated areas, far above the 27.84" that fell in Georgia during Hurricane Alberto in 1994 (the current East Coast record), or the 10.28 inches that fell in SC during Hugo. "These enormous waves are produced by being trapped along with very strong winds moving in the same direction [as] the storm's motion".

The US National Hurricane Center warned late Tuesday US time that Florence was expected to bring a life-threatening storm surge and rainfall to portions of the Carolinas and mid-Atlantic states.

"When people face the decision to leave their homes or stay and fight the storm, having the option to safely store their belongings can make that decision easier", Mack said. You're going to be displaced from your home in the coastal areas.

Graham said in a statement that Trump called him and "asked if there was anything his Administration needed to do that was not now being done for the people of SC". Catastrophic floods could follow if the storm stalls inland, it said.

Florence is forecast to trigger severe flash flooding as it dumps up to three feet (almost a meter) of rain in some areas.

"Marshall Athletics Director Mike Hamrick and I have been in constant contact throughout the week about the game", Tanner said.

President Trump on Wednesday said that as Hurricane Florence makes its way toward the USA, "protection of life is the absolute highest priority".

Parts of North Carolina could get 20 inches of rain, if not more, with as much as 10 inches elsewhere in the state and in Virginia, parts of Maryland and Washington, D.C.

It had been projected to shift north after making landfall.

"I rode out Hugo", Miller said of a 1989 hurricane that caused widespread damage. Even scarier: It could get more intense as it gets closer to the Carolinas.

The message came two days after Gov. Henry McMaster ordered a mandatory evacuation of coastal counties because of Hurricane Florence. Florence is still a Category 4 hurricane with winds up to 130 miles per hour.

Fort AP Hill and Fort Bragg were selected as FEMA Incident Support and Federal Staging Area to assist in the response, the army said. Some 7,000 guard members are ready to mobilize in North Carolina, while 1,100 will be activated in SC.

Two other hurricanes, Helene and Isaac, are now trailing Florence in the Atlantic and forecasters have warned that they could head for the UK.
