Large and unsafe, Hurricane Florence is drawing closer to the coast of the Carolinas, where it threatens to become the most intense storm to strike the region in at least 25 years, since Hugo. A year ago, people would have laughed off such a forecast, but the European model was accurate in predicting 60 inches (150 centimeters) for Hurricane Harvey in the Houston area, so "you start to wonder what these models know that we don't", University of Miami hurricane expert Brian McNoldy said.
Trump told residents: 'Don't play games with it. "It's a big one", he said.
"Unfortunately, Hurricane Florence is setting out to be a devastating event to the Carolinas, and potentially Virginia as well".
Although slow weakening is expected to begin by late Thursday, Florence is expected to be an extremely risky major hurricane when it nears the USA coast late Thursday and Friday, the National Hurricane Center said.
On the National Hurricane Center forecast track, the center of Florence will approach the coast of North Carolina or SC in the hurricane warning area on Thursday and Friday and move slowly near the coastline through Saturday.

The NHC said the first tropical storm-force winds of at least 39 miles per hour (63 kph) would hit the region early on Thursday with the storm's center reaching the coast Friday. Forecasters also were tracking two other disturbances. For example, Bojangles (BOJA) and Koninklijke Ahold Delhaize(ADRNY) have more than 20% exposure to a landfall in Wilmington, North Carolina.
