Hurricane Florence from
USA weather authorities say that as of Wednesday night, local time, Hurricane Florence was moving northwest over the Atlantic and is expected to hit North Carolina on Friday afternoon.
The storm's maximum sustained winds were clocked at 120 miles per hour (193 km per hour), down from a peak of 140 mph a day earlier before Florence was downgraded from a Category 4.
In addition to inundating the coast with wind-driven storm surges of seawater as high as 9 feet (2.7 meters) along the Carolina coast, Florence could dump 20 to 30 inches (51-76 cm) of rain, with up to 40 inches (1 metre) in parts of North Carolina, the NHC said.
They don't retire the name of every hurricane - and there's already a buzz that Florence will join the likes of Hazel (1954), Hugo (1989), Fran (1996) and Isabel (2003), the four most destructive hurricanes to strike the southeastern United States.
Florence's intensity has diminished since it roared ashore along the US mid-Atlantic coast on Friday as a hurricane.
"The time to prepare is nearly over", North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper told a morning news conference.
The storm made landfall on Friday near Wilmington, a city of about 120,000 squeezed between North Carolina's Atlantic coastline and the Cape Fear River. "We just need to figure out how to make it through".
South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster ordered as many as a million residents of the state's eastern coast to leave their homes ahead of the storm's predicted arrival tomorrow.
Jeff Byard, an administrator at the Federal Emergency Management Agency, said: Do you want to get hit with a train or do you want to get hit with a cement truck?
