Hurricane Florence Set To Hit US East Coast

But communities along the North and SC coast will likely see storm surge and damaging winds as Florence comes ashore.

Hurricane Florence is expected to make landfall on Thursday and will most heavily impact the coastal states of South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia.

A mandatory evacuation order was issued noon Monday for North Carolina's Hatteras Island.

"We do not want to risk one SC life in this hurricane", Governor Henry McMaster said at a news conference. The island state is still recovering from Hurricane Lane, which brought flooding rains to many areas last month.

According to the National Hurricane Center's 11 a.m. advisory on Monday, a "life-threatening storm surge is likely along portions of the South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia coastlines, and a Storm Surge Watch will likely be issued for some of these areas by Tuesday morning..."

As of 5 a.m. EDT, Florence was centered about 625 miles (1,005 kilometers) southeast of Bermuda, moving west at 9 mph (15 kph).

"With Hurricane Florence on its way, we determined that this is the safest decision", Michael Glassner of the Trump Campaign said in a statement.

"The bottom line is that there is high confidence that Florence will be a large and extremely unsafe hurricane, regardless of its exact intensity", the NHC said. "We look forward to working with you, FEMA, and other relevant federal agencies to ensure that the Commonwealth of Virginia has the resources available to ensure the safety of our constituents". "Take every available precaution".

At a hardware store in downtown Charleston, South Carolina, store manager John Johnson said the rush on batteries, flashlights, plastic tarps and sandbags began Friday. "We just happen to be right in the middle".

As a result, Florence "is expected to be an extremely unsafe major hurricane through Thursday", Sept. 13, said the NHC. Well-built framed homes may incur major damage, and many trees will be snapped or uprooted, blocking numerous roads, the hurricane center said. "This is probably the only exercise I get this week".

On its current track, Florence is expected to slam the Carolinas and Virginia the hardest. The governors of both states declared states of emergency. "We are hoping for the best and preparing for the worst", he said. There could also be major inland flooding from a prolonged heavy rainfall event.

The State of Emergency Response Team, which includes the Emergency Management, State Highway Patrol and North Carolina National Guard, are ready to deploy.
