NASA showed how it looks from space a hurricane "Florence"

Hurricane Florence rapidly formed into a powerful Category 4 storm Monday as it churned towards the U.S. East Coast

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.

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.

"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.

More than a thousand flights canceled in advance of Hurricane Florence
The Hurricane Center reported heavy rain bands with tropical-storm-force winds had arrived in the North Carolina Outer Banks. He said that the hurricane could only be captured on a super-wide lens, even from 400 kilometres up.

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.

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.
