Florence Targets North Carolina

1 Hurricane Florence Could Bring Up To 30 Inches Of Rain To Carolinas

She said a hurricane has a way of bringing everyone to the same level.

A storm surge warning is in effect for South Santee River South Carolina to Duck North Carolina.

On Thursday, Hurricane Florence's path took the massive storm straight into South and North Carolinas, bringing with it heavy wind and rain and the potential for major destruction.

Hurricane-force winds, which stretch up to 80 miles from the storm's center, will be felt in North and SC by Thursday night.

Forecasters said conditions will only get more lethal as the storm smashes ashore early Friday near the North Carolina-South Carolina line and crawls slowly inland. Hurricane-force winds were blowing 130 km from its centre, and tropical-storm-force winds reached up to 315km from the eye.

Cooper and his SC counterpart, Henry McMaster, told the more than 1 million people who have been told to leave that if they don't, they are on their own.

21 Hurricane Florence Could Bring Up To 30 Inches Of Rain To Carolinas

The area covered by Florence's hurricane-force winds has doubled - meaning far more people will get blasted with winds 74 miles per hour or greater. The National Hurricane Center is calling for 20 to 30 inches (50 to 75 centimetres) of rain in North Carolina, with spots up to 40 inches (100 centimetres).

The result: catastrophic inland flooding that could swamp homes, businesses, farm fields and industrial sites.

The National Weather Service said about 5.25 million people live in areas under hurricane warnings or watches, and 4.9 million in places covered by tropical storm warnings or watches.

The storm has pretty much followed the forecast track through now, but the issue will be Thursday or Friday as it nears the coast and the steering currents collapse.

Weather Underground meteorology director Jeff Masters said Florence eventually could strike as a Category 1 with winds less than 100 miles per hour (160 kph), but that's still enough to cause at least $1 billion in damage.

Along North Carolina's Pamlico River, the area is bracing for a storm surge of up to 13 feet, and all low-lying and flood-prone areas are under mandatory-evacuation orders. "Don't play games with it". Home Depot and Lowe's activated emergency response centres to get generators, trash bags and bottled water to stores before and after the storm.

Coastal towns in the Carolinas were largely empty, and schools and businesses closed as far south as Georgia.

Hurricane Florence has started to hit the North Carolina coast.

Computer models of exactly what the storm might do varied, adding to the uncertainty and storm stress.

"We have prepared everything", he says, "to have enough food, water, batteries, radio, first-aid supplies, and everything we need to be safe".
