According to CNN, the category 2 storm will possibly hit as low as Hilton Head Island in SC and make its way up as far as Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina and beyond.

Airlines cancelled about 1,200 flights and counting, and some airports in the Carolinas virtually shut down. Favorable wind patterns. Higher sea levels that exacerbate storm surge.

Cooper and his SC counterpart, Henry McMaster, told the more than 1 million people who have been directed to leave that if they don't do so, they are on their own.

With South Carolina's beach towns now more in the bull's-eye because of the shifting forecast, OH vacationers Chris and Nicole Roland put off their departure from North Myrtle Beach to get the maximum amount of time on the sand.

Florence's nighttime winds were down to 110 miles per hour from a high of 140 miles per hour, and the Category 3 storm fell to a Category 2, with a further slow weakening expected as the storm nears the coast.

The two countries have been at loggerheads since the killing of a Kashmiri freedom fighter, Burhan Wani, in July 2016. But on the other hand, Pakistan has not shown any change in its approach and policy vis-à-vis cross-border terrorism.

As the storm approached, Michael Cramer, the town manager of Carolina Beach, N.C., told NPR's Morning Edition that "easily a third of our community will be underwater" if the worst predictions are fulfilled.

Steve Goldstein with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, said Florence's forward motion had slowed overnight and it was not expected to make landfall in the Carolinas for "another 36 hours".

"This is a very risky storm", said FEMA's Long, urging people still in evacuation zones to heed orders to flee to safer ground.

"You're going to have damaging winds for a longer period of time", senior hurricane specialist Stacy Stewart said in an update from the NHC. The Navy, Air Force and Army have been moving people, ships and aircrafts out of harm's way, though evacuations were not mandatory at bases such as Camp Lejeune.

The assistance also includes Florida utilities sending crews to help restore power after the hurricane and the state suspending requirements for transportation of animals to help in the movement of livestock from areas affected by the hurricane.

North Carolina has roughly 2,100 industrial-scale pork farms containing more than 9 million hogs. Water kills more people in hurricanes than wind does. Tropical Storm Olivia has made landfall in the Hawaiian islands, the Philippines are bracing for the powerful typhoon Mangkhut, and Tropical Storm Isaac is nearing the Leeward Islands.

Elder relatives carry as much weight as meteorologists in a tight-knit community of slave descendants on the SC coast.

Behind the current monstrous hurricane, three others tropical storms exist in the Atlantic including Isaac, Helene, and Joyce. On North Carolina's Outer Banks, water flowed through streets and between beachfront homes, and some of the few people still left in Nags Head took photos of angry waves topped with white froth.

Moon and Kim also teased a potential historic fourth meeting between the two leaders, this time in the South Korean capital. And they agreed to "normalize the Kaesong Industrial complex and Kumgang tourism project as soon as the conditions allow".

At the nearby Arthur Christian Church, Booker reports, about twenty people were praying together as the storm barreled toward the Carolinas. Unsure of what they might find when they return home, the couple went shopping for a recreational vehicle.
