As Hurricane Florence approaches the East Coast of the United States, the governors of North and SC have issued mandatory evacuation orders affecting tens of thousands of residents in coastal areas.

More than a million people are expected to flee low-lying areas, as SC and Virginia ordered mandatory evacuations of coastal areas starting on Tuesday.

For many, the challenge could be finding a safe refuge.

Authorities warned of life-threatening coastal storm surges and the potential for Florence to unleash prolonged torrential rains and widespread flooding, especially if it lingers inland for several days.

Florence is now moving west at around 13 miles per hour.

People living well inland should prepare to lose power and endure flooding and other hazards, he warned.

"Get prepared on the East Coast, this is a no-kidding nightmare coming for you", Gerst said.

Apple's cheaper iPhone XR rocks bright colours
The base level iPhone is now the iPhone 7 with a 4.7-inch display, A10 Fusion chip, water proofing and stereo speaker setup. That's still more than the iPhone SE, however, which sold for $399, making it the cheapest iPhone the firm had sold.

"We don't want the school children in harm's way", McMaster said, adding Hurricane Florence would create more wind than Hurricane Hugo and more water than Hurricane Matthew.

As of Tuesday, Florence was driving sustained winds up to 140 miles per hour.

At 5:00 pm (2100 GMT), the eye of the storm was 615km/h southeast of Wilmington, North Carolina, moving northwest at 26km/h.

"The centre of Florence will move over the southwestern Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda and the Bahamas Tuesday and Wednesday, and approach the southeastern coast of the U.S. on Thursday", the NHC said.

At this height of the Atlantic hurricane season, Florence is being trailed on east-to-west paths by two other hurricanes, Helene and Isaac.

Perhaps the worst-case scenario for flight schedules is if Florence stalls after moving on shore while blocking the busy flight routes along the Atlantic coast.

The track of Hurricane Florence, which intensified into a Category 4 storm on Monday, remains uncertain.

Apple No Longer Bundles 3.5mm Audio Dongle With New iPhones
On the iPhone Xs and iPhone XR though, users can simply wake their iPhone and tap the NFC tag against their phone. For all that huge screen on the iPhone X , the case isn't truly that much bigger than that of the iPhone SE.

The governor of neighbouring North Carolina also ordered an evacuation of the Outer Banks, barrier islands that are a popular tourist destination, and parts of coastal Dare County, while a state of emergency was declared in Virginia. Also, looking like a direct hit on North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.

SC released a full statement Monday night with Hurricane Florence approaching the Carolinas and Virginia.

"Let me be clear: North Carolina is taking Hurricane Florence seriously and you should too", Mr Cooper said at a news conference. The eastbound lanes of Interstate 26 heading into Charleston and US 501 into Myrtle Beach will be reversed when the order takes effect, opening all lanes to evacuees.

Only Florence has qualified as a major hurricane.

Trump has approved emergency declarations for both coastal states, a standard move allowing the release of federal funds and equipment to aid in protection and recovery efforts.

"I've been doing this since 1983", Roberts said as he completed an order for another load of supplies.

Hurricane Florence has slightly increased in speed as it heads toward the U.S. East Coast. "It's the peak of the hurricane season, so this is definitely the time", he says.

Is Nintendo ready to talk about its online service?
Nintendo uses Direct events to connect with users and inform them of company performance, new products, and ongoing issues. Famitsu reports that Nintendo has sold 5,007,368 units of the Switch since its release on March 3 previous year .

The exact path of Florence still has some uncertainty, but meteorologists appear increasingly confident the storm will make landfall along the coast of Carolinas or - possibly - Virginia.
