Storm Florence: State Of Emergency Declared As US Braces For ‘Monster Hurricane’

Storm Florence: State Of Emergency Declared As US Braces For ‘Monster Hurricane’”

The National Hurricane Centre (NHC) said its trajectory continues to show that the centre of Hurricane Florence will most likely strike the southern coast of North Carolina by late Thursday or early Friday.

While Florence was slightly reduced in strength earlier from 140 miles per hour winds, meteorologists expect the hurricane to jump back to a Category 4 by Thursday morning.

Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) administrator Jeff Byard warned that despite its slight weakening, Florence will still be an extremely risky hurricane.

Hurricane Florence, which has been downgraded to a category 3 storm, is expected to hit late Thursday or early Friday in the Carolinas, where an estimated 1.5 million people are under mandatory evacuation orders.

It had been projected to shift north after making landfall.

"Be prepared for the inland effects of the storm as well as the ensuing storm surge in coastal areas", Mr Deal said in a statement.

Trump aide Papadopoulos gets 14 days in prison
The FBI canceled the meeting when it discovered that Papadopoulos had sat down for a media interview about the case. The lawyers argued Papadopoulos lied as he was influenced by the President's aggressive sentiments on the probe.

The threat has sparked a rush of evacuation efforts in SC and North Carolina, with more than a million people urged to get out of Florence's way.

The president signed emergency declarations for the Carolinas and Virginia, a move that frees up federal money and resources.

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

This storm is nearly bigger than North Carolina and Virginia put together so we will still feel the impacts. I believe in preparation, ' Wright said.

At least 25 million residents are at risk from the storm and experts predict its current path could cause up to $170 billion worth of damage, hit up to 759,000 homes and businesses and become the costliest to ever hit the U.S.

Since Tuesday, forecasts have shifted the storm track towards the south and southwest after it reaches the coast, which could increase the storm's severity in coastal SC through Myrtle Beach and Charleston and even into parts of Georgia.

Tropical Storm Gordon brings hurricane warning to Gulf Coast
Geo Rodriguez made a decision to go for a walk on Hollywood Beach, north of Miami, on Monday morning and got caught in the storm. After moving northwest, the next landfall for Gordon will likely be somewhere in southeastern Louisiana or southern Mississippi.

"I would say everybody should get out".

While a third added: 'Looks like a hard pounding... they are really going more than a few inches.

"Disaster is at the doorstep and is coming in", Cooper said.

To hasten evacuations from coastal SC, officials reversed the flow of traffic on some highways so all major roads led away from shore.

Other major carriers in the United States, including Delta Air Lines, Southwest Airlines and United Airlines, have similar travel advisories in place, with Southwest even issuing waivers for travelers using airports as far north as Baltimore and Washington D.C.

Florence is being trailed in the Atlantic by two other storms - Hurricane Helene and Tropical Storm Isaac.
