Hurricane Florence: Footage Of Dangerous Storm Surge Is Spreading

  • 21 Hurricane Florence Could Bring Up To 30 Inches Of Rain To Carolinas

- The big slosh has begun, and the consequences could be disastrous. Tens of thousands were without power.

On Monday, with the storm appearing to shift south, McMaster, the SC governor, ordered schools in Aiken County, near the Georgia line, to close for the rest of the week to free up shelter space for hurricane evacuees.

The NHC said in its 2 p.m. ET update that Florence is now a Category 2 storm, but it noted that the storm is quite large in diameter.

Florence will move very slowly on Saturday, but we should start to see conditions improve slightly.

Those officials, who are trained to work at this capacity, will be monitoring the storm and helping to answer emergency calls and coordinating response efforts before, during and after the storm, he said. "Have some pity on us because if you stay here and you have a problem and we have to get out in it, there's a chance that we won't because we can't". "Our flooding issue is only going to get worse".

Florence, though downgraded to a Category 2 storm on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale, remained unsafe and unpredictable, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.

Florence's maximum sustained winds were clocked on Thursday at 105 miles per hour (165 kph) after it was downgraded to a Category 2 on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale, according to the NHC.

Gradually, Friday through the weekend (local time), the massive storm - containing a zone of tropical-storm-force winds almost 643km wide - will drift inland, engulfing much of SC and southern North Carolina. Millions of people were expected to lose power from the storm and restoration could take weeks. "Today the threat becomes a reality".

At least 12,000 people had taken refuge in 126 emergency shelters, Cooper said, with more facilities being opened.

There are fears that this storm could cause damage similar to what Houston suffered during Hurricane Harvey past year, when homes and businesses were inundated with floodwater. Noting the heavy bands on the hurricane's northeast quadrant, he added, "We are on the bad side of this storm". The federal response was especially criticized following Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, which even a year later is still struggling to restore even basic services.

He can improve, he can do more. "I think we need to find a new contract with him to stay with the Arsenal team". Here for me it isn't for a lot of the time speaking about what people are telling us.

Thursday afternoon, President Donald Trump tweeted that he had just been briefed on the storm and "FEMA, First Responders and Law Enforcement are supplied and ready".

Memorial University Medical Center received nine patients from other HCA facilities in SC and eight from Coastal Carolina Hospital in Hardeeville, Memorial spokesman Dale Hooks wrote in an email.

Wilmington resident Julie Terrell was plenty concerned after walking to breakfast past a row of shops fortified with boards, sandbags and hurricane shutters. "Because it's Mother Nature".

Roads and intersections on North Carolina's Outer Banks barrier islands were already inundated with water. That is enough water to fill the Empire State Building almost 40,000 times.

Leaders of the states in the path of the storm have warned people all week to evacuate the most susceptible areas.

She said the momentum the storm has generated on its long trip across the Atlantic won't go away just "because the winds decrease a couple miles an hour". "There is overwash but nothing we are not used to", she said. With Florence, the potential for deaths by drowning comes from the storm surge as well as incredibly heavy rainfall. "And by that I mean the teams and families but also the allotment of resources used for the game that could be better used somewhere else".

Workers are being brought in from the Midwest and Florida to help in the storm's aftermath, it said.

Flooding risks are also causing worries over the more than 300 wild horses living on North Carolina's coasts.

Scientists said it is too soon to say what role, if any, global warming played in the storm.

The relationship between climate change and hurricanes is a complex one. But the storm surge and the wind field actually increased. Tropical-Storm-force winds extend outward up to 195 miles from the center.
