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.

In Sea Breeze, Roslyn Fleming, 56, made a video of the inlet where her granddaughter was baptized because "I just don't think a lot of this is going to be here" after the storm.

Florence could bring wind-driven storm surges of seawater as high as 13 feet (4 meters) and NHC Director Ken Graham said on Facebook they could push in as far as 2 miles (3 km).

Maximum water heights caused by Hurricane Florence's storm surge as predicted by the ADCIRC computer model.

Those officials, who are trained to work at this capacity, will be monitoring the storm and helping to answer emergency calls and coordinating response efforts before, during and after the storm, he said. Virginia, in fact, has issued mandatory evacuations for coastal areas of the state.

When a college football game was canceled due to Hurricane Florence, one of the team's decided to make the best out of the situation.

This same zone will be hammered by winds gusting up to hurricane force for almost a day while tropical-storm conditions could linger twice that long.

The National Hurricane Center warned the threat of tornadoes was increasing as Florence neared shore and South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster said the heavy rains could trigger landslides in the western part of his state.

Before, the National Hurricane Center feared that Florence would make landfall as a Category 4 storm. "Stay on guard. This is a powerful storm that can kill".


Given that the forward speed of Florence will slow to a crawl today and tonight, coastal areas in the Carolinas will have to withstand these destructive winds for a very long period of time. Noting the heavy bands on the hurricane's northeast quadrant, he added, "We are on the bad side of this storm".

"Catastrophic effects will be felt outside the center of the storm due to storm surge", North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said Thursday morning. In some counties, almost 1 in 3 people live below the poverty line. "This is low tide, and it looks like high tide", she said.

Because most are managed as wild animals, numerous horses will be left to fend for themselves, said Paula Gillikin of the North Carolina Coastal Reserve. The federal response was especially criticized following Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, which even a year later is still struggling to restore even basic services.

"It doesn't matter how much money you have or how many generators you have if you can't get gas", she said.

Almost 1.7m people along the coastlines of North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia have been ordered to evacuate.

"We try to facilitate. anything that makes a smooth transition from home to shelter", he said. They've also been praying, singing songs in their native language.

Memorial University Medical Center received nine patients from other HCA facilities in SC and eight from Coastal Carolina Hospital in Hardeeville, Memorial spokesman Dale Hooks wrote in an email. Both North Carolina and SC are updating their lists of emergency shelters for people caught by the storm.

Despite reassurances from FEMA and Trump, Florence's fluctuations and course-change predictions have added to the difficulties of preparing for such a massive storm.
