83-Foot Wave Recorded By Satellite Monitoring Hurricane Florence

Amazon again puts disaster relief efforts in motion as Hurricane Florence set to punish Carolina coast

The South Carolina Department of Corrections says some prisoners were moved in a Pee Dee facility ahead of Florence's approach toward the coast. Some weakening could occur as Florence moves across cooler waters and draws upwelling on the shallow continental shelf, but that will not lessen the storm's danger, NHC forecasters said.

In New Bern, at the confluence of the Neuse and Trent rivers in North Carolina, Florence overwhelmed the town of 30,000.

Storm surge flooding does not include floods caused by the heavy rain from the hurricane, such as what happened a year ago in Houston with Hurricane Harvey and in North Carolina in 2016 during Hurricane Matthew. South Carolina AD Ray Tanner and I communicated all week in hopes that we could play, but in the end, not playing is the safest option for all concerned.

"While Florence's maximum winds are expected to weaken a little, it is still expected to remain a risky major hurricane as it approaches the coast", they warned in a Wednesday mid-day update.

It had sustained winds of 90 miles per hour and was moving in a northwest direction.

Neither Mr Pence nor Ms Conway answered directly when asked if Mr Sessions should treat the President's comments as an order. Both also said they had no idea who wrote the piece.

The centre of Florence, a slow-moving Category 3 hurricane on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale, is expected to strike North Carolina late Thursday or early Friday and could drift southwest along the coast before turning inland, according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami. Florence might not be the only massive storm the East Coast will have to contend with over the course of the next several days. Labor Day marked the end of the peak tourism season in the Outer Banks of North Carolina and other coastal getaways. The more it hovers just off shore, the more potentially deadly storm surge it could push on-shore.

More than 20,000 people were in 157 shelters in North Carolina, with 7,000 more in SC shelters. He says: "If Mama and Grandma are going, then a lot of people are leaving". "Our meteorologists are saying that the rainfall amounts will be devastating in certain areas", he said. Parts of North Carolina had seen storm surges - the bulge of seawater pushed ashore by the hurricane - as high as 10 feet, he said. The flooding in southeast North Carolina and northeast SC might be "unprecedented", according to the agency. The rainfall will produce life-threatening flash flooding in Virginia and the Carolinas.

Two other tropical storms - Isaac and Olivia - have also been in the vicinity this week, with the National Weather Service estimating that some 10.15 million people lived in areas under either hurricane or tropical storm warnings. Nationwide, airlines canceled more than 2,400 flights through Sunday. Meteorologists are warning residents of inland Virginia, North Carolina, and SC of possible inland flooding if the storm stalls out as many models are predicting. President Donald Trump preemptively declared an emergency in North Carolina, enabling the state to access federal funds in anticipation of the storm.

Hurricane-force winds now extend up to 80 miles and tropical-storm-force winds extend up to 195 miles from the center of the storm.
