SC refusing to evacuate inmates as monster storm Florence nears

SC refusing to evacuate inmates as monster storm Florence nears

Florence is also expected to lose speed and "hover" once it reaches the coast, which will intensify the impacts of its heavy rainfall and storm surges, Ken Graham, director of the National Hurricane Center (NHC), said in a Facebook Live update earlier today.

The storm strengthened from 130 miles per hour to 140 miles per hour and is Category 4, the NHC said. It was a potentially catastrophic Category 4 storm but was expected to keep drawing energy from the warm water and intensify to near Category 5, which means winds of 157 miles per hour or higher.

"Hurricane Florence is the strongest storm to target the Carolinas and this part of our country in decades", Byard said. The hurricane centre said Florence will approach the coast Thursday and Friday and linger for a while before rolling ashore.

All three states ordered mass evacuations along the coast. "When you slow a system down that has tropical water with it, it is just going to dump rain".

The hurricane center's projected track previously had Florence charging into the North Carolina coast on Friday.

Executives in North and South Carolina, Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia declared emergencies earlier in the week. Forecasts predict as much as 20 inches of rain in some places but one computer model warned there could be up to 45 inches, almost four feet.

"I can't emphasise enough the potential for unbelievable damage from wind, storm surge and inland flooding with this storm". I believe that was a Category 1 storm when it hit Charlotte.

The storm could also to affect weather here in the United Kingdom, though the Met Office has said it is "uncertain" about what the impact could be. The storm is moving west-northwest at 17 mph and is 785 miles east-southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina.

Sharp doesn't like to compare hurricanes because each one is different, but he did note that Florence is a stronger storm than Matthew, which hit the state in 2016.

Rainfall totals from Hurricane Florence will top 20 inches in some areas, the National Weather Service says.

Trojniar said she and her husband were packing up belongings and plan to stack sandbags around their single-floor home in Wilmington's eerily named Landfall neighborhood near the ocean before checking into a hotel to ride out the storm, with plenty of wine. Shelters in the city were filling and some people were being bused inland to Raleigh, even though some residents there were told they might have to evacuate because of flooding. "It is an extremely, dangerous, life-threatening, historic hurricane", North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said.

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

SC authorities have turned four motorways into one-way routes away from the coast to speed the exodus.
