The Potential Reality Of Hurricane Florence Is Terrifying

Hurricane-force winds now extend outward up to 70 miles the center and tropical-storm-force winds now extend outward up to 195 miles from the center.

Cooper said many people in his state who may think the storm has missed them have not yet seen its actual threat to their regions, advising residents inland that "rivers will rise days after the rain has stopped", reaching their highest level days from now.

Wilmington resident Julie Terrell said she was concerned after walking to breakfast past a row of shops fortified with boards, sandbags and hurricane shutters.

Storm surge is deadly.

Conditions are rapidly deteriorating along the coast of the Carolinas as Florence approaches.

Of those who left, more than 4,000 had sought housing at emergency shelters across the state.

The storm's intensity diminished as it neared land, with winds dropping to about 90 miles per hour by nightfall. That created some confusion and, officials feared, complacency.

He said: "I could be wrong". "I find it amusing that the storm of hysteria is bigger than the storm itself".

Officials pleaded with residents across the Carolinas to treat the storm as a deadly threat.

Despite the hurricane losing wind intensity since its peak as a Category 4, it has grown substantially in overall size and its predicted deceleration in forward speed will take a costly toll.

Tropical storm-force winds will move into the Pee Dee and eastern Midlands on Friday, with strong winds expected in the central Midlands late Friday and western Midlands early Saturday, the Weather Service said. Don't relax; don't get complacent.

Cooper also wanted to remind folks to not drive on roads covered by water, and to stay away from doors and windows during the worst of the storm.

Speaking on Thursday, North Carolina's governor, Roy Cooper, said: "We can not underestimate this storm".

North Carolina activated 2,800 National Guard personnel, and SC called up 2,100 of its National Guard soldiers to be ready to aid in recovery efforts once the storm has passed.

NHC Director Ken Graham said on Facebook the storm surges could push in as far as 2 miles (3 km).

As the leading edge of Hurricane Florence moved over the North Carolina coast on Thursday, Northeastern's Charlotte campus was mobilizing a robust network of people to monitor weather patterns, assess risks, and provide support services to students and their families. "It can still kill you". "This is not one that's going to hit the coast and pass through quickly".

Florence was one of two major storms on Friday.

More than 420,000 people had evacuated their homes by Thursday afternoon, McMaster said. He bluntly told people in the evacuation zones to leave quickly, saying: "Time is running out". Listed as exempt from the curfew are police, fire, emergency and medical personnel performing duties, credentialed members of the media and evacuees.

Forecasters are predicting the massive storm's relentless rains have the potential to produce catastrophic flash flooding and significant river flooding while also contributing to the potential for landslides across the mountains.

"This is a very unsafe storm", Long said. So if you can leave, now would be a good time to go ahead and leave and you can always get back in. Fortunately for House, he says this storm should not be a devastating event for the beach town in terms of loss of life. They said the military had made sites, including Fort Bragg, North Carolina, available to FEMA as staging areas for relief equipment and had put helicopters and high-wheeled vehicles at the ready in different sites in the southeast for search and rescue use.

If storm cleanup keeps courses closed, it will likely have a heavy impact on hotels, restaurants and the rest of the area's tourist economy. Be SAFE! " Trump tweeted on Wednesday. "We are with you!"

Computer models of exactly what the storm might do varied, adding to the uncertainty.

A state of emergency has been declared in five coastal states - North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Maryland and Virginia.
