Trump urges ‘incredible’ people in Carolinas to take precautions for Hurricane Florence

The Latest SC governor 'Assume' major hurricane will hit

The National Hurricane Center downgraded Isaac to a tropical storm overnight but said Tuesday that it could be "at or near hurricane levels" on Thursday, when it approaches the Lesser Antilles Islands.

As of 5 a.m. ET Monday, Hurricane Florence's center was about 625 miles southeast of Bermuda and was moving west-northwest at a speed of 9 mph.

As of 11 a.m. Monday, hurricane-force winds extended outward up to 30 miles from the center of the storm and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 140 miles.

According to the North Carolina Emergency Management agency on September 9, there is now an "increasing risk of life-threatening impacts: storm surge at coast, flooding inland ... Theses swells will result in life-threatening surf and rip currents".

The NHC said: "All indications are that Florence will be an extremely unsafe Category 4 hurricane while it moves over the western Atlantic toward the southeastern United States".

Henry McMaster (R) on Monday ordered a mandatory evacuation of the state's coastline ahead of Hurricane Florence's expected arrival on Thursday.

"We do not want to risk one SC life in this hurricane", the governor told a press conference.

Preparations for Florence come as the Atlantic hurricane season hits its peak.

Hazel also wreaked havoc on Southern Ontario, dumping over 200 milimetres of rain on Toronto alone, while packing winds over 100 km/h. Florence was gaining strength in the warm waters of the Atlantic and expected to make landfall sometime Friday morning.

Horry and Georgetown counties shifted their operating conditions at noon Monday as Hurricane Florence continued to strengthen and head toward the Carolina coast.

Oliva said various models have the storm's eye making landfall anywhere between Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and Cape Hatteras in the Outer Banks.

"It's not likely to miss us", Heden said.

A hurricane watch has been issued for the USA east coast from Edisto Beach, South Carolina to North Carolina-Virginia border, including the Pamlico and Albemarle sounds., with storm surge watches encompassing the same area. "This storm gets stronger and stronger" and is on its way to a head-on impact on the Carolinas, CNN meteorologist Chad Myers said. North Carolina seems to be the state that could bear the brunt of the winds, along with SC and parts of southern Virginia.

Erin Byrd checked in online from Publix in Apex, North Carolina.

As of Monday evening, Florence was 500 miles in diameter, much larger than the typical 300-mile-wide hurricane. The storm was located roughly 1,170 miles east-southeast of the Cape Fear region, and remained a risky Category 4 storm.
