The Impact Of Hurricane Florence

Alabama Power crews await arrival of Hurricane Florence

"It's going to be a huge storm-surge event followed by a flood event".

But the National Hurricane Center said Wednesday evening that the storm is expected to bring life-threatening storm surge and rainfall to the Carolinas as it approaches the coast Thursday and Friday. "And since we have three dogs and three parrots, they're requesting us to purchase two to six rooms".

That's because the weather systems that push and pull a storm disappear as Florence nears land around the border between North and SC.

"This is a life-threatening situation", said the National Hurricane Center.

The press release even reminded people to make plans for their pets if they are evacuating. "He is the only caregiver to me and my son", Browning said. "It's a big one", he said at the White House. It's a kind gesture but doesn't alleviate Browning's fear.

The racetrack said its Winner's Walk I reserved RV area outside Turn 1 will be available free for individuals needing a place to bring their campers, trailers and noncommercial vehicles.

Browning said she had started a GoFundMe campaign in case repairs are needed for the family home.

Cooper and his SC counterpart, Henry McMaster, told the more than 1 million people who have been directed to leave that if they don't do so, they are on their own.

"Inland flooding kills a lot of people".

"Do you want to get hit with a train or do you want to get hit with a cement truck?" said Jeff Byard, an administrator with the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Sumter middle school sent photos of Hurricane Florence from astronaut aboard space station

So despite some fluctuation in strength, the message remains the same...

The News & Observer reports that the storm's path shifted early Wednesday and it is now bearing down on southern North Carolina and northern SC, where it could dump up to 40 inches of rain in places. "Tens of thousands of structures are expected to be flooded, and many more by rising rivers and creeks".

Florence is anticipated to move slowly over eastern South Carolina Friday night through Saturday night.

Why is he open when the town is mostly evacuated?

"This is no ordinary storm, and people could be without power for a very long time - not days but weeks", Fountain said on a call with reporters.

He said he usually doesn't make the pizzas himself, but he was on Thursday because "everybody is scared", including most of his staff. Tropical Storm Olivia is approaching the Hawaiian islands, the Philippines are bracing for the powerful typhoon Mangkhut, and Tropical Storm Isaac is nearing the Leeward Islands.

European astronaut Alexander Gerst shared images of Florence's eye wall from space, calling the storm a "no-kidding nightmare".

Emergency preparations included activating more than 2,700 National Guard troops, stockpiling food, setting up shelters, switching traffic patterns so major roads led away from shore, and securing 16 nuclear power reactors in the Carolinas and Virginia. Hurricane Helene is veering toward Ireland and Great Britain.

There are now four named storms in the Atlantic basin with subtropical storm Joyce named Wednesday, and two areas of disturbed weather with chances of development.
