Carolina coast braces for 'Mike Tyson punch' from hurricane

Carolina coast braces for 'Mike Tyson punch' from hurricane

Hurricane-force winds extended 80 miles (130 kilometers) from its center, and tropical-storm-force winds up to 195 miles (315 kilometers).

Holly Waters, a retired special education teacher from Wilmington, said she was happy to have a place to go to relax before the storm worsened.

The US National Hurricane Center showed previous year that between 1963 and 2012, 49 percent of US hurricane deaths were caused by the storm surge.

Federal Emergency Management Agency administrator Brock Long said storm surge warnings have not changed despite the weakening intensity of the winds. In addition to the hurricane's obvious risks, the National Weather Service says, "A few tornadoes are possible in eastern North Carolina through Friday".

"If you find yourself here please get out", says Navarro. "We're able", he said.

At 11:00 am (1600 GMT), the eye of the storm was about 485 miles (785 kms) southeast of Wilmington, North Carolina, moving in a northwest direction at 15 mph (24 kph).

The trend is "exceptionally bad news", said University of Miami hurricane researcher Brian McNoldy, since it "smears a landfall out over hundreds of miles of coastline, most notably the storm surge".

Turkey central bank raises benchmark rate to 24%; lira rallies
Phoenix Kalen, director of EM strategy at Societe Generale, said the market was both pleased and confused by the bank move. On Thursday, the Turkish Central Bank exercised that independence - and appeared to reassure investors in the process.

While Barjat has been downgraded to a tropical depression with winds ranging between 32-33 miles per hour, Olivia, once a major hurricane, has discharged its strength on the waters and its winds reach a maximum of 35mph.

The National Hurricane Centre's best guess was that Florence would blow ashore as early as Friday afternoon around the North Carolina-South Carolina line, then push its rainy way westward with a potential for catastrophic inland flooding. Those winds can heard howling at the Frying Pan, a decommissioned lighthouse 55km off the North Carolina coast.

He urged people in the coastal Carolinas and living near inland rivers to evacuate.

A hurricane can kill you in a lot of different ways.

Hurricane Florence's outer edges have started to batter the coast of North Carolina - with winds of 100mph bending trees and shooting frothy seawater onto the streets.

Steady streams of vehicles full of people and belongings flowed inland on Tuesday as North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper tried to convince everyone on North Carolina's coast to flee.

Many people in coastal communities have followed the mandatory evacuation orders, but some are vowing to stay put and ride it out.

The Final Remnant Remastered Will Value the Game's PS4 Debut
That's an interesting little twist, because The Last Remnant originally launched as an Xbox 360 exclusive back in 2008. The Last Remnant Remastered is scheduled to release on December 6th digitally on the Playstation Store for $19.99.

Georgia joined North and South Carolina, Virginia and Maryland in issuing an emergency declaration as forecasts showed Florence dumping historic amounts of rain - potentially 10 trillion gallons - on the southern states. The power companies expect millions of people to be without power for days.

Mr Cooper's office said the current emergency declaration was helping state officials prepare for the storm.

"The infrastructure is going to break", he said.

Up to 40 inches of rain could fall in North Carolina.

That was a bad idea, said Avair Vereen, a local nurse who had sought safety in the shelter with her seven children. "I'm not leaving him here". "We're ready and God will watch over us".

"I have no generator", said Petra Langston, a nurse. "I learned from the past to keep the ice in the washing machine".

Avair Vereen, 39, took her seven children to a shelter in Conway High School.

A top aide to Pope Benedict and Pope Francis on Tuesday said the scandal amounted to the church's "own 9/11" catastrophe. The Vatican's statement on Wednesday did not set out what the agenda might look like in February.

"We're just trying to plan for the future here, not having a house for an extended period of time", David Garrigus said.
