Coastal North Carolina...20 to 30 inches, isolated 40 inches. Its maximum sustained winds have dropped slightly to 110 miles per hour (175 kph).

WILMINGTON, North Carolina-Hurricane Florence, growing in size despite its weakening winds on September 12, crept closer to the U.S. East Coast as disaster mobilizations expanded south from the Carolinas into Georgia to counter the threat of deadly high seas and calamitous floods.

By late Thursday into Friday, steering patterns in the atmosphere may completely break down causing the storm to stall just off the coast of southeast North Carolina and northeast SC. "These enormous waves are produced by being trapped along with very strong winds moving in the same direction as the storm's motion".

Ron Ring is the general manager at Hilton Garden Inn Jacksonville Airport and he said it's pretty common for them to be sold out because so many people stay there who are flying into town.

She said at least 60 to 80 of their 180 rooms are booked by people fleeing from SC or North Carolina, but they have plenty of practice housing evacuees since many leave the Jacksonville beaches when hurricanes pass through the area.

Ferry service from North Carolina's Bald Head Island already has stopped.

"I've been through hurricanes before but never with kids", she said.

There was also concern over crops.

"It's going to be bad", said Woody White, chairman of the New Hanover County Commissioners.

At least 1.7 million people in the Carolinas and Virginia have been warned to evacuate, and others are hunkering down.

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.

Appeals to stay safe came from as far away as space as German astronaut Alexander Gerst tweeted pictures of the monster storm taken from the International Space Station along with the warning: "Watch out, America!"

Faced with new forecasts that showed a more southerly threat, Georgia's governor joined his counterparts in Virginia and North and SC in declaring a state of emergency, and some residents who had thought they were safely out of range boarded up their homes.

"Get prepared on the East Coast, this is a no-kidding nightmare coming for you", Gerst said. It urged residents to heed evacuation orders.

Subtropical storm Joyce formed in the Atlantic on Wednesday but is not expected to threaten land.

Many people in coastal communities have followed the mandatory evacuation orders, but some are vowing to stay put and ride it out. National Guard soldiers from the state, North Carolina and Virginia are mobilizing to prepare for hurricane recovery efforts.
