'Time running out' for residents to escape Hurricane Florence

'Time running out' for residents to escape Hurricane Florence

McMaster told residents in some counties that emergency responders will be pulled from areas expected to be hit hard.

Tesh, who works in information technology for UNC-Wilmington, said she and her husband have been ferrying valuables to her parents' house on the mainland in Wilmington, where they planned to ride out the storm. "Inland flooding kills a lot of people, unfortunately, and that's what we're about to see", he said. He said, "Sand dunes gone storm surge 4' into house knocking down walls first floor".

Steering currents - around clear-weather high-pressure systems and stormy low-pressure systems - redirect hurricanes, with the clear-weather systems acting as walls that storms have to go around.

About 1.7 million people in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia are under voluntary or mandatory evacuation orders and millions of others live in areas likely to be affected by what has been described as the most severe storm to hit the region in decades.

A crawling pace can be even more punishing than a fast one, because it lets the storm stall in one area as it dumps more and more heavy rain. But forecasters warned that the widening storm - and its likelihood of lingering around the coast day after day - will bring seawater surging onto land and torrential downpours.

Tornadoes also remain a threat, particularly in areas northeast of the hurricane's eye.

The Hurricane Florence has began to unleash fierce rains across the U.S. southeast.

The outer bands of wind and rain from a weakened but still lethal Hurricane Florence began lashing North Carolina as the monster storm moved in for a prolonged and potentially catastrophic drenching along the Southeast coast.

The National Hurricane Center has downgraded Florence to a Category 2 hurricane, with maximum sustained winds of 110 miles per hour expected. The storm's overall movement has slowed to 10 miles per hour.

Hurricane Florence has dropped to a Category 2 status, but it remains "very unsafe storm" that will hit nearly all of North Carolina, and everybody "needs to pay attention and seek cover", Sen. Some 3,000 people died in the aftermath of that storm.

What damage will it cause?

"As the rain pours down during the storm, inland evacuations may become necessary and the time for completing such tasks will come to an end as travel becomes increasing hard and unsafe", Sosnowski said.

Jenni Koontz, a photographer who shot the clip, wrote on Instagram at 12 p.m. Sept 13 that "the guy in the front end loader told me there is a hole in the road somewhere between the pier and Hatteras so I turned around".

The storm was expected to become a tropical depression on Saturday and significant weakening was expected over the weekend, the NHC said in a bulletin.

The Coast Guard says port operations in Charleston, South Carolina, have been stopped as Hurricane Florence approaches the coast.
