More than a thousand flights canceled in advance of Hurricane Florence

The primary example of this is 2012's Hurricane Sandy, which had modest 80mph winds by the time it reached the NY and New Jersey areas.

Rainfall will accumulate near 2 feet in North Carolina. Storm surge, the rise in seawater above normally dry land at the coast, could rise a story high. On top of that, a disastrous amount of rain - 500mm, possibly even as much as 1m - is expected to fall.

"This rainfall will produce catastrophic flash flooding and prolonged significant river flooding", the briefing said.

"Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 175 miles (280 km)". Florence's worst aspect: its slowing down and stalling over coastal areas, causing up to 19-foot storm surges, and dropping from 6 to 40 (!) inches of rain. "Don't plan to leave once the winds and rains start".

The Hurricane Center reported heavy rain bands with tropical-storm-force winds had arrived in the North Carolina Outer Banks.

At 11 a.m., the storm was located about 520 miles east of Myrtle Beach, S.C., moving northwest at 15 mph with 130 sustained winds, forecasters said. The storm's 12-mph forward speed Thursday morning was a marked drop from Wednesday's 17-mph speeds. He said that the hurricane could only be captured on a super-wide lens, even from 400 kilometres up.

If the rain forecasts hold true, it could take some time for not just planes, but cars, trucks, trains, and even some emergency vehicles to return to the hardest hit areas.

About 5.25 million people live in areas under hurricane warnings or watches, and 4.9 million more live in places covered by tropical storm warnings or watches, the National Weather Service said. Some fluctuation in wind speeds are expected, and weakening forecast Thursday, but it's still expected to be a fierce storm triggering risky flooding.

And while some people may think that Florence doesn't possess the same punch Harvey did since it's only a Category 2 storm, there is a comparison: Sandy. It warned of likely "structural damage to buildings. with several potentially washing away", "flooded or washed-out coastal roads" and "major damage to marinas".

SC ordered the mandatory evacuation of one million coastal residents while North Carolina ordered an evacuation of the Outer Banks, barrier islands that are a popular tourist destination. "It can still bring a massive storm surge ashore".

Trouble began brewing last week, when three hurricanes-Florence, Isaac, and Helene-starting churning up the North Atlantic.

"As it tracks towards the United Kingdom it will degrade - it will become an ex-tropical storm". "Once the storm moves further inland to Atlanta and Charlotte, the biggest issue will be rain and thunderstorms", she said.

California has set a goal of phasing out electricity produced by fossil fuels by 2045 under legislation signed Monday by Gov. Others say the goal of 100 percent renewables is not realistic because wind and solar power are not always available.

"We're seeing on social media, we're seeing comments and calls coming into our hotline that people are saying, 'Oh, it's only a Cat 2.' Well, only a Cat 2 has winds of up to 96 to 110 miles per hour", Derrec Becker, spokesman for the S.C. Emergency Management Division told The State on Thursday.
