With winds picking up along the coastline early Thursday, federal and state officials had issued final appeals to residents to get out of the path of the "once in a lifetime" weather system. The damage from the storm is also cumulative over time, as it slowly moves inland, damaging homes and buildings, blowing trees over, and knocking down power lines.

"The first bands are upon us", Gov. Roy Cooper said Thursday evening.

Don't relax, don't get complacent.

"The larger and the slower the storm is, the greater the threat and the impact - and we have that". Heavy rains were forecast to extend into the Appalachian mountains, affecting parts of Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky and West Virginia.

The hurricane was seen as a major test for the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which was heavily criticized as sluggish and unprepared for Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico a year ago.

"We expected it to strengthen and then as it approached the coast to weaken somewhat", Abrams says. "I've never been one to leave for a storm but this one kind of had me spooked".
