Trump declares state of emergency in Carolinas ahead of Hurricane Florence

Hurricane Florence Is Traveling A Similar Path As A 1933 Storm That Got Very, Very Close To D.C.

Millions are being told to evacuate as the North and SC coasts prepares for the arrival of Hurricane Florence, a Category 4 storm that continues to strengthen into "an extremely unsafe major hurricane through Thursday night".

To whip up a monstrous storm like the one chugging for the Carolinas you need a handful of ingredients - and Florence has them all.

"It does look a bit similar to Harvey in a sense that it goes roaring into shore and then comes to a screeching stop", said MIT meteorology professor and hurricane expert Kerry Emanuel. Hurricane watch zone is shaded in pink. A turn toward the northwest is forecast to occur late Wednesday night as it approaches the coast of SC and North Carolina on Thursday. More than 1.5 million people have already been ordered to evacuate coastal areas ahead of the storm. American, Delta, United, Southwest, JetBlue, Spirit, Frontier, and Alaska have all issued fee waiver policies for some airports in Virginia and North and SC.

If the hurricane makes landfall, this so-called brick wall will likely play the villain again; the brick wall is expected to weaken, meaning it won't help steer Florence out to sea. "It is likely some areas will flood that have never flooded before".

Florence is still a Category 4 hurricane and is expected to regain its top wind strength in the next day or so.

Florence will hit the mid-Atlantic states later in the week. Extremely risky hurricane-force winds could batter coastal locations Thursday into Friday.

The NHC warned that hurricane force winds may extend 65 kilometers from the center and tropical-storm-force winds may reach 240 kilometers outward. It could reasonably occur anywhere between the mountains and the coast.

Woodward: Mattis, Kelly denials of his book quotes untrue
But Woodward insisted his book was accurate and said he carefully vetted each description included in the book. Trump and several members of his administration were quoted have called the book "fiction and fabrication".

Forecasts call for 10 to 15 inches (25-38 cm) of rain in the hardest-hit areas, possibly more if the storm stalls over land, as expected, Graham said. Even normal water is warm enough for a storm to form there, but this adds to the storm's fuel and its rainfall.

Liz Browning Fox was planning to ignore these orders and ride out the storm in the village of Buxton on the North Carolina Outer Banks. Paul is not expected to make landfall but Olivia could threaten Hawaii.

American said its integrated operations center in Fort Worth continues to closely monitor the track of these storms and so far, the airline has not cancelled any flights. The hurricane is projected to reach inland areas including Stanly County.

The only Category 5 hurricanes to hit the USA were Andrew in 1992, Camille in 1969 and an unnamed "Labor Day" hurricane in 1935.
