Hurricane Florence's path: Track the storm here

  • Hurricane Isaac

States of emergency have been declared in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia, due to fears over the weather conditions the storm will bring. Florence was upgraded twice Monday to a Category 4.

"Right now it's 625 miles South of Bermuda, with 105 mph winds".

The most destructive winds will be on the north side of Florence as it makes landfall (combining its forward speed with actual winds), so those communities to the north of the landfall (within 50-100 miles or so) will bear the brunt of the wind damage and destruction. Forecasters also cautioned that Hurricane Florence will "remain an extremely risky hurricane" as it tracks towards the mainland U.S.

Neighboring Dare County - where much of the staff that looks after the herd lives - and other coastal counties along the coast issued evacuation orders for all residents and tourists. "We know we can´t play around with this", said Jennifer Oosterwyk, who owns the Sugar Britches boutique on Holden Beach and lives in nearby Wilmington.

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

Schools, state government offices and medical facilities will be evacuated, too, McMaster said.

"This is a serious storm, and it's going to affect the entire state of Virginia", he said.

He moved in and out of the pocket and escaped the wrath of the Packers' defense to extend drives in the first half. Kizer was 18 of 34 for 179 yards that day, while also rushing for 18 yards and a touchdown on five carries.

Residents of coastal areas are boarding up homes and packing their bags as residents brace for Florence's wrath.

With the state of emergency declared and Hurricane Florence, a category 4 hurricane, headed toward the east coast, the University of SC is going to have some decisions to make, especially with a home football game against Marshall on Saturday night. "People are getting frantic", manager Nadine Schrock said, adding her shop also sold out cases of bottled water.

A very unsafe situation ahead this week for parts of the East Coast.

Grocery stores began selling out of water, milk and bread, and supply stores were struggling to stock batteries, plywood and generators as early as Sunday.

"This means winds jumped up from 75 mph to 130 mph in just 25 hours ending 12 p.m. EDT Monday".

Hurricane and Storm Surge Watches will be issued on Tuesday as the storm is expected to head toward the southeastern US, potentially making landfall, still as a category 4 hurricane, Thursday afternoon or night.

Meanwhile, US president Trump was forced to cancel one of his planned "Make America Great Again" rallies scheduled for Friday night in Jackson, Mississippi.

"It'll be coming on shore as a Category 3 storm". Well-built homes can lose walls and roofs. Most trees will be snapped or uprooted and power poles downed. Storm surge and freshwater flooding from rainfall could become life-threatening risks, especially from SC through the mid-Atlantic. Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan said flooding could be catastrophic if it hits the state.

"Plan for the worst, pray for the best".

NHC director Ken Graham, says that Hurricane Florence is likely to slow down as it approaches the Carolinas - which could have devastating consequences for residents, reported the Independent. He encouraged people to learn evacuation routes and put fuel in their vehicles in case they're ordered to leave.

By way of comparison, the maximum intensity of Hurricane Maria, the storm system which path of destruction left nearly 3,000 people dead in Puerto Rico, was 277.8 km/h, (150 knots), the NHC said.

September 10 is the peak of the hurricane season in the Atlantic and the time when the strongest hurricane develop. Other games could be affected as the storm travels inland.

Isaac is expected to gain strength in the next day or two before beginning to weaken mid-week when it approaches the Lesser Antilles.

Many newcomers have moved to the coast in the almost 19 years since the last strong hurricane - Floyd - threatened the area.
