Florence barreling closer to coast of Carolinas

Hurricane Florence: Georgia declares emergency ahead of 'monster' storm

The storm is expected to make landfall early Friday morning near Wilmington, North Carolina.

Hurricane hunter aircraft also fly through the storm, taking data on wind speed to figure out exactly how intense Florence is at any given moment.

At the White House, President Donald Trump urged people to "get out of its way". "We are ready. We're as ready as anybody's ever been". You're talking about him like he just escaped from Skull Island.

With less than 48 hours before Hurricane Florence was forecast to reach shore, officials in the Carolinas were still pleading for residents to evacuate communities in the storm's path.

Apple Unveils iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, iPhone Xr
What else does the new iPhone offer? Instead of a dual camera, the iPhone XR features a single 12-megapixel f/1.8 wide-angle lens. However, it's early to give a verdict on it but our hunch is that Apple might just have a victor on its hands with the iPhone XR.


"This rainfall would produce catastrophic flash flooding and significant river flooding", the hurricane center says.

Hurricane Florence has been downgraded to a Category 2 storm but it is still considered an extremely unsafe and life-threatening storm.

"This will be a storm that creates and causes massive damage to our country", Jeff Byard, Federal Emergency Management Agency associate administrator, told CNN on September 11.

With South Carolina's beach towns more in the bull's-eye because of the shifting forecast, OH vacationers Chris and Nicole Roland put off their departure from North Myrtle Beach to get the maximum amount of time on the sand.

As of 11 p.m. ET Wednesday, the storm was centred 455 kilometres east-southeast of Wilmington, N.C., moving northwest at 28 km/h. Tropical storm-force winds are expected to hit the coasts of South and North Carolina by the morning of September 13.

Georgia Governor Nathan Deal declared a state of emergency "in light of the storm's forecasted southward track after making landfall". The Gamecocks announced Wednesday afternoon that Saturday's scheduled game against Marshall in Williams-Brice Stadium has been canceled due to the potential impact of Hurricane Florence.

The eastbound lanes of several major highways have been shut to allow traffic to flow inland, but the exodus was slow along roads jammed with outward-bound vehicles. But at the Eagle Crest senior living community near the shore here Wednesday, the windows had always been boarded up and a sign was already hung on the front door announcing that nobody was there. "Now it might be time for the exam", Baxley said late in the morning. Amazon says it provided assistance to millions of people in 2017 who were impacted by hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, as well as floods in India and earthquakes in Mexico.

While one man concluded: 'We are about to get pounded, but since we have absolutely no control over it, all you can do is laugh, and pray for the best'.
