It is likely to become a Category 5 before landfall.

Coastal residents fleeing a potentially devastating blow from Hurricane Florence encountered empty gasoline pumps and depleted store shelves as the monster storm neared the Carolina coast with 140 miles per hour (225 kph) winds and drenching rain that could last for days.

"Further strengthening is forecast tonight and Wednesday".

The ground in Athens already is saturated from the 27 inches of rain that fell since April, so flooding remains a possibility as a result of Hurricane Florence, according to King.

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

Mobile strikes $3.5 billion 5G deal with Ericsson, matching recent Nokia investment
Both European vendors have undoubtedly benefited from the United States clampdown on Chinese rivals Huawei Technologies Co. Ericsson has signed a multi-year, $3.5 billion contract with T-Mobile for the operator's nationwide 5G network deployment.

Beyond the Carolinas and Virginia, which were expected to bear the brunt of the storm, rain and flooding were expected through next week in certain parts of Tennessee, Georgia, West Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland and the District of Columbia.

Florence is one of the strongest hurricanes on the eastern seaboard in decades, and will bring a triple threat of risky storm surge, flooding and hurricane-force winds in parts of the Carolinas and Mid-Atlantic states. He also cancelled several campaign events he had scheduled for Thursday and Friday.

"Protection of life is the absolute highest priority", he added.

"In collaboration with state emergency agencies and the Georgia Hospital Association, we are monitoring bed counts daily so that we can quickly and accurately assist with any necessary evacuations", said Sydney Walker, spokesperson for Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center.

He observed that Florence was "tremendously big, tremendously wet". "A tremendous amount of water".

Oil hits $80 as Iran fears mount
Energy Information Administration (EIA) cut its forecast for U.S. crude output growth in 2019. Brent crude futures rose US$1.69, or 2.2 percent, to settle at US$79.06 a barrel.

If these projections hold, University of Miami hurricane researcher Brian McNoldy says "it's exceptionally bad news, as it smears a landfall out over hundreds of miles of coastline, most notably the storm surge".

"No matter where this storm comes ashore, it will have widespread, significant impacts in North Carolina", he said.

The southeast coast of North Carolina will experience a prolonged storm surge reaching up to 9 to 13 feet from near the mouth of the Cape Fear to Cape Lookout.

Parts the eastern seaboard of the United States will be deluged with 40 inches of rain and suffer a "Mike Tyson punch" from Hurricane Florence, emergency planners warned today.
