The ISS Captured This Mind-Boggling Video While Flying Over Hurricane Florence

The ISS Captured This Mind-Boggling Video While Flying Over Hurricane Florence

Coweta County residents can breathe a brief a small sigh of relief, at least on Thursday morning.

Hurricane and storm surge warnings are in place from South Santee River, South Carolina, to Duck, North Carolina.

While some weakening is expected on Thursday, Florence is forecast to be an extremely unsafe major hurricane when it nears the United States coast.

A weakened jet stream means that should Florence strike land, it will be in no hurry to move on.

So far during in 2018 Atlantic hurricane season there have been nine tropical storms, of which five - Beryl, Chris, Helen, Isaac and Florence - have become hurricanes.

Trump tweeted about the danger to Georgia Wednesday, saying, "Hurricane Florence may now be dipping a bit south and hitting a portion of the Great State of Georgia".

As of Wednesday morning, 20 eastern North Carolina counties were under either a mandatory or voluntary evacuation, or some combination of the two, according to the N.C. Department of Public Safety.

Florence could have devastating impacts in Virginia, including storm surges, inland flooding, downed trees and power outages, Gov. Ralph Northam said.

"An Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft that was in the hurricane until just after midnight" recorded a peak wind gust of around 150 miles per hour, according to the hurricane center. "We're kind of at the mercy of the storm".

What's more certain is beach erosion and unsafe surf conditions.




While one man concluded: 'We are about to get pounded, but since we have absolutely no control over it, all you can do is laugh, and pray for the best'. "It's too early to tell", he added. It is an extremely unsafe, life-threatening, historic hurricane.

"Once you leave, (it will be) hard to get back in to check on damage", he said. "People still have time to gather supplies, fill prescriptions, make sure their pets and loved ones will be safe".

"We just feel pretty secure with everything".

HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS: Do you have what you need for the storm?

Myrtle Beach officials signed an order banning people from entering the ocean as Hurricane Florence nears. Governors of those states have already declared states of emergency, as have the governors of Virginia and Maryland.

The declaration covers nearly the entire state and includes Coweta County and the surrounding area.

Packing maximum sustained winds of 140 miles per hour (225 km per hour), the storm ranked as a Category 4 on the five-step Saffir-Simpson hurricane scale and was expected to grow stronger and larger over the next few days, the NHC said.

Carol Trojniar, 69, a longtime Wilmington resident and retired estate agent who had never experienced a Category 4 hurricane said: "I'm scared we'll get 30 inches or more of rain".

In addition to wind-driven storm surges of seawater, Florence could dump up to 35 inches (89 cm) in some spots as it moves inland, forecasters said.
