White House Buckles in For Hurricane Florence

White House Buckles in For Hurricane Florence

It was located 575 miles (925 kms) east-southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina, and moving at 17 mph (28 kph) in a west-northwest direction.

As the day progresses we'll see partly cloudy skies with a slight chance for a shower or storm. "Florence is expected to slow down considerably by late Thursday into Friday, and move slowly through early Saturday".

More than 5.4 million people live in areas under hurricane warnings or watches on the US East Coast, according to the NWS, and another four million people were under a tropical storm watch. That would make it the costliest storm ever to hit the U.S.in terms of property loss. It will also slam on the brakes and stall near the coast of the Carolinas. It will dump rain for days, while drawing moisture from the ocean.

"I can't emphasize enough the potential for unbelievable damage from wind, storm surge, and inland flooding with this storm". But one thing it might actually help is to reduce the overall wind speed, though we're still going to have gusty winds around here which combined with that wet soil could bring down some trees.

"It's likely we'll get significant flooding and high winds", he said. "But no matter how bad it's going to be, it will pass and our job will be to rebuild this community together, and that's what we're going to do". "We just need to figure out how to make it through". Forecasters also were tracking two other disturbances.

'Wherever you are in North Carolina, get ready for Florence now, ' Governor Cooper said.




Ocracoke Inlet NC to Salvo NC: 4-6′.

Hurricane Florence, on track to become the first Category 4 storm to make a direct hit on North Carolina in six decades, howled closer to shore on Tuesday, threatening to unleash deadly pounding surf, days of torrential rain and severe flooding. Its maximum sustained winds are expected to top 145 miles per hour before losing some steam near the coast.

Local rainfall records will definitely be threatened by Florence, Cantore said. Some fluctuations in strength will be possible through Thursday morning.

The entire coastlines of North and SC, in addition to some parts of southeastern Virginia, are under a mandatory evacuation plan.

"The President reinforced this is a unsafe storm, and everyone in evacuation areas should follow the advice of Governor McMaster to evacuate while there is still time", Graham added. This storm is a slow-moving mammoth and will linger for days on the coast, heavily affecting not only North and SC but also Georgia and parts of Virginia before moving further inland, causing devastation to entire states throughout the weekend.

A similar situation occurred with former Hurricane Isaac as it approaches the Lesser Antilles islands.
