Trump urges ‘incredible’ people in Carolinas to take precautions for Hurricane Florence

He described the storm as "extremely large and unsafe".

As Hurricane Florence intensified into a major, Category 4 storm in the Atlantic Ocean today (Sept. 10), astronauts and satellites have spotted the enormous weather system from space. To the west, a tropical disturbance has developed over the northwest Caribbean Sea.

Hurricane-force winds are extending up to 65 kilometres from the storm's centre, while tropical-storm-force winds are blowing out at up to 240 kilometres.

Florence is now moving west at around 13 miles per hour (20 kph), and is forecast to drench a large swath of the US East Coast running from northern Florida to New Jersey.

"Further strengthening is anticipated, and Florence is expected to be an extremely risky major hurricane through Thursday", NHC officials warned in another advisory.

With the state of emergency declared and Hurricane Florence, a category 4 hurricane, headed toward the east coast, the University of SC is going to have some decisions to make, especially with a home football game against Marshall on Saturday night. The northernmost landfall was made by Hazel, a devastating and deadly storm that struck close to the South Carolina/North Carolina border in October of 1954.

In the third grade she did a school project about Williams. "I don't know how to say that in Japanese". "I don't see things as Mr. In otherwise serious post-match press conferences, the reporters love her for your youthful candor.

SOUTHEASTERN N.C. - The National Hurricane Center announced at 5 p.m. Monday it could begin issuing hurricane and storm surge watches as soon as Tuesday morning.

As Hurricane Florence approaches the East Coast of the United States, the governors of Virginia, North and SC have issued mandatory evacuation orders affecting hundreds of thousands of residents in coastal areas.

South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster told up to one million residents of the state's eastern coast to leave their homes ahead of the storm's possible arrival on Thursday. Vessels that can't leave port will prepare by a variety of means, from adding mooring and storm lines to dropping anchor and disconnecting shore power cables. Regardless of where the storm makes landfall, Florence is expected to bring a tremendous storm surge that could be life threatening.

But the season is just now peaking, and Hurricanes Florence, Isaac, and Helene are a stark reminder that we are not out of the woods yet. It should accelerate over the next 36 hours, but poses no threat to land at this time.

Storm surge and hurricane watches may be issued Tuesday morning for portions of southeastern USA states, the NHC said.

Some forecasters are concerned that the storm appears likely to slow dramatically at about the time of landfall, like 2017's Hurricane Harvey, which stalled out Houston, dropping huge amounts of rain over several days.
