- Tornadoes are possible as the storm meanders near or over the Carolinas.

"But if you put a foot or 2 - or maybe in some isolated places more - of rain over hills and mountains, you have a very different kind of problem, which is really more unsafe than the flat situation, as bad as that was", he said.

Due to Hurricane Florence, our game at UNC this weekend has been canceled.

As Hurricane Florence continues to build strength and head toward the East Coast, airlines around the United States have started waiving change fees for travelers scheduled to fly in or out of potentially impacted cities.

Volvo has temporarily halted production at its SC factory as Hurricane Florence approaches the southeast coast. "A case of water and a few cans of beanie-weenies aren't going to sustain you for more than a week".

"We are not going to let that happen", he said. He said it will mean a longer time before power crews can fix lines and a delay before water and sewer services can be restored to homes.

Gates did not fully throw himself into philanthropy until he stepped down as CEO of Microsoft in 2000. Some activists and politicians have partly blamed the city's problems on Amazon.

A potential bright spot to the storm is that code enforcement, architecture and building construction all improved after major storms of the 1950s and 1960s - including the devastating Hurricane Hazel of 1954, which wiped portions of entire towns in the region clean.

"There was a major shift in architectural choices in foundation design", he said.

"It makes a tremendous difference".

Large breaking waves of 15 to 20 feet or greater are expected along the coast, resulting in significant beach erosion and ocean overwash Thursday through Friday night, the center said.

More than 10 billion pounds of wet animal waste is produced annually in the state, according to a June 2016 report by the group, which has monitored the impact of past storms.

As of 8 a.m. today, Florence was a Category 4 hurricane packing 130 miles per hour winds and moving about 15 miles per hour west-northwest.

Facebook builds AI to understand memes
Facebook employs flesh and blood moderators too, of course, but its fancy algorithms play a huge role in the experience. For better or worse, memes are a part of the online culture, and they are especially prevalent on social media sites.

A four-person, emergency operations center support team from the New Orleans Fire Department is also planning to deploy to North Carolina.

Cutcliffe said the Blue Devils opted for the Thursday departure because it's "our best opportunity to get out". "They think of their homes and their property when they should be thinking of their family first". It goes without saying that SC farmers don't need yet another major weather challenge this year after having so many weather disasters in the past. "We all would hate to look back and see lives lost because folks did not heed warnings to seek safe shelter". "My suggestion is go as far west as you can go".

Five sites slated for closing that are closest to the coast have lower water levels and "can hold significant rainfall", Erin Culbert, a spokeswoman, said in an email.

As one of the nation's foremost experts on storm surge, he warned that if Florence hits at high tide, it could pose serious risks to property and life for any low-lying areas along the coast as well as along any inlets. That means high rainfall totals and consequent inland flooding could become a huge concern.
