Hurricane Florence Coverage From Around The State

Hurricane Florence Coverage From Around The State

A high definition camera outside the International Space Station captured a NASA view of Hurricane Florence on September 12, 2018.

Her neighbors gave her the key to their house, which is two stories and might be safer from flooding, she said.

Even though the storm's category fell from a 4 to a 2 Wednesday (local time), forecasters stressed the category is only an evaluation of the storm's peak winds in a very narrow core near the center of the storm.

And then there's the major slowdown that's expected: as of Thursday, Florence was moving roughly 17 km/h, but once it makes landfall, it's expected to nearly stall, with its forward speed dropping to just 9 km/h or less.

"I'm not approaching Florence from fear or panic", he said.

Wilmington, North Carolina, just north of where the hurricane is expected to come ashore, was sunny around midday on Wednesday as the town appeared to be emptying. Eventually, Florence will veer north into the Appalachian Mountains, bringing soaking rains to Virginia and western North Carolina, before sputtering out late next week near DE and Maryland, the FWS reported.

Hurricane and storm surge warnings are in place from South Santee River, South Carolina, to Duck, North Carolina. "Catastrophic effects will be felt".

The centre of Florence, no longer classified as a major hurricane but still posing a grave threat to life and property, is expected to strike North Carolina's southern coast on Friday, then drift south-west along the shoreline before moving inland on Saturday, according to the National Hurricane Centre (NHC) in Miami.

The storm will slow down because of pushback from a trough - an extended area of low atmospheric pressure - now over Texas, Stacy Stewart, an NHC senior hurricane specialist, said in the update.

Isaac became the fifth hurricane of the season late Sunday and was initially expected to strengthen, potentially becoming a Cat 2 storm with 100 miles per hour winds, as it crossed warm ocean waters.

"Your time is running out", he said. "A lot of rain", said Maj. "This is a life-and-death situation".

Warning the 10 million residents of America's Southeastern coast about Hurricane Florence, US President Donald Trump has said, "Don't play games with it".

At least 88,000 people were without power in North Carolina with the brunt of the storm yet to come, according to the state's emergency management agency. "We just need to figure out how to make it through".

A hurricane's numerical classification tends to dominate the headlines, but it tells only part of the story - it rates a storm's wind speeds - and not necessarily the most life-threatening part. It caused 117 fatalities and cost the US $17 billion.

Even miles away from the Atlantic, North Carolina residents in low-lying areas are boarding up and emptying stores.

U.S. television networks said 7pm to 7am curfews had been put in place in several towns surrounding Myrtle Beach. South Carolina's state capital Columbia is at only 89m (292ft).

SC officials say more than 400,000 people have evacuated the state's coast and more than 4,000 people have taken refuge in shelters as Hurricane Florence approaches.

"It doesn't matter where you are", he said.

Duke Energy, the main regional electrical provider, projected some 3 million people could lose power and warned that the lights could stay out for a long time.

"I don't care if this goes down to a Category 1", CNN meteorologist Chad Myers said on Thursday.
