Hurricane Florence Set To Hit US East Coast

Hurricane Florence is seen traveling west over the Atlantic Ocean on Sept. 10 2018. 

As projected paths for Florence continue to change, Gov. Henry McMaster said during an update Sunday afternoon, "What that means for us in SC is that whatever happens, we're going to have a lot of rain and a lot of wind".

As Hurricane Florence steadily makes its way toward the southeastern part of the USA, meteorologists have issued repeated warnings of expected rainfall, flash flooding, high-intensity winds and even mudslides.

But Hurricane Center officials warned that anyone in coastal and inland locations from SC to the mid-Atlantic region should "closely monitor the progress of Florence, ensure that they have their hurricane plan in place, and follow any advice given by local officials".

The National Hurricane Center's storm surge unit has a map tool that people can use to zoom in and see what could happen to their community depending on the strength of the storm.

The soaked ground and fierce winds could bring down trees and power lines and knock out electricity for weeks.

The cone, which represents the "probable track of the center of a tropical storm" is "formed by enclosing the area swept out by a set of circles along the forecast track (at 12, 24, 36 hours, etc)" the NHC says on its website.

The upgrades will mark the most-significant changes to the Apple Watch since the product was launched in 2014. Last year, Apple previewed a charging mat called AirPower, but never mentioned it again.

President Donald Trump declared a state of emergency for all three states, with Florence likely to bring widespread flooding and destruction once it arrives. And he had advice for coastal residents.

If this scenario plays out, meteorologists say there would be monumental rainfall totals along the coast and just inland east of the eye's landfall location.

More than 1.5 million people have been ordered to evacuate along 300 miles of coastline. They have faced gas shortages at some stations, while those who have chosen to remain in the path of the storm are clearing store shelves of emergency supplies. Matthew's floods were devastating for many areas of eastern North Carolina.

"This storm is a monster". 'It is big and it is vicious'. Upon immediate landfall, the threats are you standard hurricane threats - storm surge, strong winds, tornadoes.

One woman told MSNBC she would be staying at home in Wilmington, NC with her two children despite the storm.

With the onset of tropical storm force winds and rain only a couple of days away, the time to prepare is now, emergency management officials said.
