Wind, flooded roads herald approach of Hurricane Florence in North Carolina

Wind, flooded roads herald approach of Hurricane Florence in North Carolina”

The biggest surge should occur just to the north of where the eye of the storm comes ashore, which the Hurricane Center projects in southeastern North Carolina.

It's going to be rainy, windy weekend in Charlotte because of Hurricane Florence and, although, we are probably going to miss the worst of this storm, other parts of the state will be seriously impacted. Then it is likely to hover along the coast Saturday, pushing up to 13 feet (nearly 4 meters) of storm surge and unloading water on both states.

There are fears that this storm could cause damage similar to what Houston suffered during Hurricane Harvey previous year, when homes and businesses were inundated with floodwater.

"This storm will bring destruction to North Carolina", Cooper said. Bev Perdue, a Democrat-in 2012, after the state's Coastal Resource Commission published a 2010 report (pdf) predicting that seawater could rise 39 inches along the coast by 2100, and lawmakers, coastal landowners, and members of the real-estate industry responded with alarm over pricey waterfront property that faces billions of dollars in damage. "They have a team where one will being there during the storm and they had me put on the team to come on after". Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 195 miles.

"Against my better judgment, due to emotionalism, I evacuated", said Fisher, 74.

Wild horses in the Rachel Carson Reserve in Beaufort, North Carolina will fend for themselves during Hurricane Florence.

Radar has shown a half-dozen tornadoes in eastern and southeastern North Carolina, the National Weather Service reported.

For people who stayed behind near the coast, or find themselves facing the brunt of the storm, officials are offering safety advice.

A buoy off the North Carolina coast recorded waves almost 30 feet high as Florence churned toward shore. The forward speed of the storm has slowed so the impacts will start to intensify and linger. "That's the second story of a house", North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said Thursday morning.

The National Hurricane Center says Hurricane Florence has finally made landfall near Wrightsville, North Carolina.

Thursday afternoon, President Donald Trump tweeted that he had just been briefed on the storm and "FEMA, First Responders and Law Enforcement are supplied and ready".

"On a scale of 1 to 10, I'm probably a 7" in terms of worry, she said.

Cheryl Browning lives with her husband and son, who has terminal cancer, in Richlands, North Carolina. "Today the threat becomes a reality". They also have three dogs and three parrots. Both North Carolina and SC are updating their lists of emergency shelters for people caught by the storm.

Keep battery-operated flashlights and radios, medications, water and food on hand, Hayes said.

Leaders of the states in the path of the storm have warned people all week to evacuate the most susceptible areas.

"We're avoiding euthanasia at all costs", Pender County Animal Shelter manager Jewel Horton told The Washington Post.

Coastal towns in the Carolinas were largely empty, and schools and businesses closed as far south as Georgia. The storm surge could reach up to more than 3.9m, if the maximum surge coincides with high tide. From east to west, the community is less than a dozen blocks deep, with the Atlantic on one side and the Cape Fear River on the other.
