Hurricane Florence from space: "A no-kidding nightmare"

Harvey stalled after moving into Texas as a Category 4 and then took several days to make a final landfall as a tropical storm in Louisiana

Forecasters say Florence is now a tropical storm but will continue to threaten North and SC with powerful winds and catastrophic freshwater flooding. "Don't bet your life on riding out a monster".

According to the National Weather Service, as of 10 a.m. Thursday, Hurricane Florence was losing strength and was downgraded to a Category 2 storm with maximum sustained winds at 110 miles per hour. "It's a big one", he said. The two hardware chains said they sent in a total of around 1,100 trucks.

"Forecasts generally project the storm to make landfall between northern SC and North Carolina's Outer Banks as a strong Category 3 on Thursday, although shifts in the track are possible and storm impacts will expand great distances beyond where landfall occurs". Florence is stronger, so you should at least be prepared for some power outages and tree damage even if the storm does not come near us. "It's going to destroy homes", said Jeff Byard, an official at the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

What's worse: Much of the Carolinas are already saturated from rainfall.

The coastal surge from Florence could leave the eastern tip of North Carolina under more than 9 feet of water in spots, projections showed. Florence could then move slowly along the North Carolina and SC line then possibly move down the SC coast before actually making landfall later this weekend.

Florence is expected to bring rain and high tides to the Williamsburg area in the coming days, but the area won't experience the deluge that had been predicted, forecasters say.

As of 2 p.m., the storm was centered 435 miles (700 kilometers) southeast of Wilmington, North Carolina, moving at 16 mph (26 kph).

The Queensland premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk , has issued the reward over concerns for growers as well as consumers. Jeannette Young, Queensland's chief health officer, said the Donnybrook brand would be pulled from store shelves .

"It's about rain, rain, rain", he said.

20 to 30 inches will fall on southeastern North Carolina, Charlotte could see around five to 10 inches of rain. You never know, but we know.

Florence's projected path includes half a dozen nuclear power plants, pits holding coal-ash and other industrial waste, and numerous hog farms that store animal waste in huge lagoons.

"North Carolina, my message is clear", a grim Gov. Roy Cooper said at a briefing today.

"Rather than a very narrow and intense band of winds, the winds are slightly weaker - but [they] cover a much larger area", NHC senior hurricane specialist Stacy Stewart said on Wednesday. But that part of the East Coast rarely sees major hurricanes.

Based on the current forecast track, here is what to expect...

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Goes-East weather-monitoring satellite used its lightning mapping technology for a video showing Florence, Tropical Storm Isaac and Hurricane Helene as they traveled across the Atlantic on Tuesday.
