Georgia governor declares state of emergency ahead of Hurricane Florence

Georgia governor declares state of emergency ahead of Hurricane Florence

One simply added: 'Your Florence hurricane forecast looks like a giant penis and testicles.

Speaking in the Oval Office alongside Trump, FEMA administrator Brock Long said Florence may be a "very devastating storm". This shift to the south certainly brings Charlotte into play for much heavier rainfall, and I think that's going to be the biggest issue that we're going to have to deal with in the Charlotte area is soaking heavy rains that could fall not only over a day but maybe several days after landfall.

As of Tuesday morning, Florence was about 900 miles east of Cape Fear, NC., heading west.

The storm, a Category 4 on the five-step Saffir-Simpson hurricane scale, was expected to grow stronger and larger over the next few days, the NHC said.

Astonishing winds aren't the biggest danger.

'I can't emphasise enough the potential for unbelievable damage from wind, storm surge and inland flooding with this storm'.

Updated NHC forecasts showed the storm lingering near the coast of the Carolinas, carrying days of heavy rains that could bring intense inland flooding from SC to Virginia. The model appears to show the hurricane stalling, dumping rain as it sits on the state's edge. "But as this system comes in and makes landfall, during the weekend it's forecast to stall out, lose its strength and its steering currents, and drop copious amounts of rainfall". Unsure of what they would find when they return home, the couple went shopping for a recreational vehicle. "It's a statewide threat for the states involved". More than 1 million residents have been ordered to evacuate from the coastline of the three states, while university campuses, schools and factories were being shuttered. With warmer ocean water, there's more energy available to power the hurricane, according to Nature.

Modi said his thoughts and solidarity are with the bereaved families. "I pray that the injured recover quickly". Allegedly, the conductor allowed 80 passengers while the seating capacity of the bus is a mere 44.

New projections indicate the now-Category 3 hurricane will move slightly southeast, with landfall expected between Wilmington and Morehead City, North Carolina. But that part of the East Coast rarely sees any major hurricanes. A lot of people hearing this are remembering Hurricane Hugo in 1989.

Florence's predicted pause and slow southward turn off North Carolina on Friday means some coastal areas will get damaging hurricane-force winds for more than 24 hours.

Most of the deaths from hurricanes in recent years have come from people who stay put and get caught in the ensuing floods, retired Coast Guard Capt. Thomas Lennon tells TIME.

"Do you want to get hit with a train or do you want to get hit with a cement truck?" he said.

"The atmosphere overall, before the potential landfall, certainly looks like we are going to have a very unsafe hurricane on our hands", Weather Channel meteorologist Jim Cantore told the Wilmington (N.C.) StarNews.

"We're a resilient bunch down here". "But this is pretty serious".
