Hog Farmers Scramble to Drain Waste Pools Ahead Of Hurricane Florence

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

Florence's centre was expected to move over the Atlantic Ocean between the Bahamas and Bermuda on Tuesday and Wednesday before approaching North and SC on Thursday.

Hurricane-force winds began whipping North Carolina, as federal emergency management officials warned that the Category 2 hurricane - while weakening slightly - remains a "very risky storm" capable of wreaking havoc along a wide swathe of the coast.

Hurricane Florence, carrying winds of up to 130mph as a Category 4 storm, is expected to strengthen and possibly become a Category 5 storm on Tuesday.

States of emergency have been declared in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia in preparation for Florence's arrival.

The storm's first effects were already apparent on barrier islands as risky rip currents hit beaches and seawater flowed over a state highway - the harbinger of a storm surge that could wipe out dunes and submerge entire communities. And some forecasts have the storm slowing to linger over the Carolinas, spreading heavy rain all the way to West Virginia while leading to flooding and power outages.

Several meteorologists said Florence could do what Hurricane Harvey did over Texas, dumping days of rain, although not quite as bad.

South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster ordered a mandatory evacuation of all eight counties on the coast on Monday, The State newspaper in Columbia reported.

In her jury seeking action, Thompson says that Weinstein raped her later than day in a almost hotel. Thompson told Sky she was thinking of the initial encounter with Weinstein.


Two other storms are spinning in the Atlantic.

But the landfall intensity of that storm was 250 km/h when it hit Puerto Rico, it added.

"There's never been a storm like Florence".

In Wilmington, North Carolina, a steady rain began to fall as gusts of winds intensified, causing trees to sway and stoplights to flicker.

The state has issued mandatory evacuations.

Local officials say this is not a storm to be underestimated.

The ocean waters that Florence is travelling over are about 2.7 degrees (1.5 degrees Celsius) warmer than normal, McNoldy said.

Photos of Hurricane Florence from space are truly scary to behold
Landfall was expected sometime late Thursday and FEMA officials said Wednesday was the last day for people to get out safely. Jeff Byard of the Federal Emergency Management Agency said it was imperative locals heed the evacuation warnings.


This NASA handout photo shows a view from the International Space Station of Hurricane Florence off the United States east coast in the Atantic Ocean on September 10, 2018. It was located father north in the Atlantic than any other storm to ever hit the Carolinas, so what we're forecasting is unprecedented. "These tropical storms and hurricanes are very risky".

"We are not going to gamble with the lives of the people of South Carolina", McMaster said.

The storm was moving west-northwest at around 15km/h, and was forecast to drench a large swath of the US East Coast running from northern Florida to New Jersey.

Right now, the citizens of Summerville, South Carolina, are on their toes waiting to see where Hurricane Florence will hit the hardest.

Currently, 1,600 National Guard members are on duty and ready to deploy - a number Livingston said likely will grow to more than 3,000.

Long-duration hurricane-force winds of 74 miles per hour or higher could cause tremendous damage and widespread power outages.

Pfaff said Florence's current track puts southeastern North Carolina in the pocket to get tons of rain and he is closely eyeing how this will effect our river basins.
