Florence UPDATE for Friday landfall North Carolina

Florence UPDATE for Friday landfall North Carolina

The fire department in Carolina Beach was sounding one final alarm Wednesday, urging residents to evacuate the island before Hurricane Florence makes landfall.

"This rainfall would produce catastrophic flash flooding and significant river flooding", the NHC said.

As of 8 a.m. ET, Florence was 530 miles southeast of Cape Fear, N.C., moving west-northwest at 17 mph, the National Hurricane Center says. As it turns into southern SC.

The trend is "exceptionally bad news", said University of Miami hurricane researcher Brian McNoldy, since it "smears a landfall out over hundreds of miles of coastline, most notably the storm surge".

The eastbound lanes of several major highways have been shut to allow traffic to flow inland, but the exodus was slow along roads jammed with outward-bound vehicles.

Downpours and flooding would be especially severe, lasting for days, if the storm stalls over land. By late Wednesday, authorities in North Carolina reported almost 7,000 evacuees staying in 71 emergency shelters throughout the state.

"If you aren't under evacuation orders, now's the time to finish preparations and get ready to hunker down", Cooper said.

President Donald Trump - who was criticised for his response to the deadly Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico a year ago -has said the White House is "absolutely, totally prepared" to provide aid once Florence hits. "Protection of life is the absolute highest priority and that's what we are doing".


But forecasters say there's an increased chance for tropical storm winds to reach Savannah.

"Everything is packed", Espinoza said.

One wrote: 'I hope everyone in the path of Florence's massive penis stays safe'.

The Town of Ocean City's Emergency Management personnel works closely with local and state representatives to provide citizens with timely, accurate and essential information before, during and after the storm.

Speaking at a news conference on Wednesday, he said: "Disaster is at the doorstep and it's coming in". So, the winds will be winding down much quicker near the coast before those winds get up here.

With South Carolina's beach towns more in the bull's-eye because of the shifting forecast, OH vacationers Chris and Nicole Roland put off their departure from North Myrtle Beach to get the maximum amount of time on the sand.

In Virginia, 245,000 coastal residents were ordered to evacuate.

Another joker said: 'Looks like tropical storm Floyd has penetrated Florence, we will be having a baby shower for the little sprinkle that's due in 9 months'.
