Hurricane Florence starts its prolonged assault on the Carolinas

Hurricane Florence starts its prolonged assault on the Carolinas

Large and risky, 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.

Forecasters said conditions would only get more lethal when the storm smashed ashore early on Friday near the North Carolina-South Carolina line and crawled slowly inland. The storm's size and area affected by hazardous winds have actually expanded, and the threat from storm and rain-induced flooding "have not changed" tweeted Rick Knabb, The Weather Channel's tropical weather expert and former Hurricane Center director.

Forecasters' European climate model is predicting 2 trillion to 11 trillion gallons of rain will fall on North Carolina over the next week, according to meteorologist Ryan Maue of weathermodels.com.

"Heed the warnings", said Byard, adding there was "well over $20 billion" in FEMA's disaster relief fund.

MYRTLE BEACH, SOUTH CAROLINA-Time is running short to get out of the way of Hurricane "Florence", a monster of a storm that has a region of more than 10 million people in its potentially devastating sights as it zeroes in on the U.S. southeast coast.

More than 1 million people have been ordered to evacuate the coastlines of the Carolinas and Virginia.

U.S. east coast braced for catastrophic hurricane strike
Florence was expected to bring very heavy storm surge , rain and flooding to the entire region on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The first waves directly kicked up by the huge storm system should begin coming ashore late Wednesday.

Duke Energy said the hurricane could knock out electricity to three-quarters of its 4 million customers in the Carolinas, and outages could last for weeks.

"We are completely ready for hurricane Florence, as the storm gets even larger and more powerful".

Forecasters expect Florence to hit the Carolinas early in the morning on September 14.

Calling the storm surge prediction "incredible", Graham said that because Florence will likely nudge its way onto the coast, giving its hurricane winds lots of time to force water inland, he wouldn't be surprised "to see storm surge a mile, a mile and a half inland - maybe even two miles or more, in some cases".

National Guard soldiers from the state, North Carolina and Virginia are mobilizing to prepare for hurricane recovery efforts.

Robinson noted that some of the forecasts are expecting rainfall of 800 to 1000 mm over a 30-hour period. "It can still bring a massive storm surge ashore". "It's going to happen. We just need to figure out how to make it through".

Britain reports two separate cases of rare monkeypox infection
Besides medical staff, PHE said it was trying to contact passengers who were near the first patient on the flight to the UK. The most obvious symptom is a rash, which usually appears on the face before spreading to other parts of the body.

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

As Florence drew near, US President Donald Trump tweeted that FEMA and first responders are "supplied and ready", and he disputed the official conclusion that almost 3,000 people died in Puerto Rico, claiming the figure was a Democratic plot to make him look bad. "The building's solid and Buddha will protect us".

People fleeing coastal North and SC clogged highways as Florence bore down for a direct hit in the low-lying region dense with beachfront vacation homes. But Gov. Larry Hogan said he wouldn't cancel a statewide emergency declaration as the threat of Florence's remnants looms.

Even worse: Florence is expected to hover over the Carolinas, whipping hurricane-force winds and dumping relentless rain at least through Saturday.

Hurricane Florence is shaping up to be a awful storm, and it does not look any better when you look at it from space.

A 2016 study by the Environmental Working Group and Waterkeeper Alliance identified more than 4,000 animal waste pits in North Carolina where pig and chicken excrement is collected.
