Florence to become powerful hurricane Monday

  • Here's what David Epstein is saying about Hurricane Florence

Isaac was centered about 1,150 miles east of the Windward Islands and moving west at 14 mph.

South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster estimated about 1 million residents were under orders to evacuate the coast of his state.

Hurricane Florence picked up power and again became a major hurricane Monday, and forecasters say it's got the mid-Atlantic region of the East Coast in its sights. Its maximum sustained winds were at 105 miles per hour (165 kph). Not long after, a Hurricane Hunter flight measured sustained winds near 130 miles per hour, prompting the National Hurricane Center to issue a rare special advisory, upgrading the storm to Category 4.

"Pretend, presume and assume that a major hurricane is going to hit smack dab in the middle of SC", he said.

"You never know, there could be tree missiles coming from any direction", she said.

As of noon Tuesday, the storm was about 1,230 miles southeast of the Cape Fear region, according to the National Weather Service.

Rapidly intensifying Hurricane Florence could strike a direct and unsafe blow anywhere from the Carolinas to the Mid-Atlantic region later this week. "We are taking Hurricane Florence seriously".

The track for Hurricane Florence shows it targeting the Carolinas by Thursday. The Federal Government is closely monitoring and ready to assist. Florence is a 140-mph, major Category 4 storm, moving to the west-northwest at 13 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center's latest advisory. Residents and visitors in popular tourist spots such as Duck and Corolla faced a Tuesday deadline. It's possible that by the time you read this, Isaac will also be a hurricane.

Just in case listeners didn't connect " Hard White " to the Cardi B altercation, Minaj added the hashtag #NYFW to her post. Opening her latest episode on Monday, she got straight down to business, recapping the incident from her perspective.

The 2018 hurricane season lasts until November 30. That does not many any evacuations are in place: as of now, they're not. Mandatory evacuations have begun along North Carolina's coast. State offices and schools would also be closed in the affected counties, lawmakers said. It strengthened rapidly last week before it was weakened by wind shear. "This storm gets stronger and stronger" and is on its way to a head-on impact on the Carolinas, CNN meteorologist Chad Myers said.

The hurricane center's description of a Category 4 hurricane begins with "catastrophic damage will occur". Don't assume the storm will follow the center line - the center could move anywhere within the shaded area.

The NHC warned that Florence "is forecast to rapidly strengthen to a major hurricane by Monday night, and is expected to remain an extremely unsafe major hurricane through Thursday". Any Category 3, 4 or 5 hurricane is classified as a major hurricane.

"These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip currents", the hurricane center said.

The storm's first effects were already apparent on barrier islands as risky rip currents hit beaches and seawater flowed over a state highway.

Residents as far north as Virginia were warned that Florence posed an increasing risk of generating a life-threatening coastal storm surge, as well as flooding from heavy rainfall should the slow-moving storm stall over the southeast.

"This is very scary rain event potentially setting up this week", Rossi said.

"North Carolina is no stranger to hurricanes", Cooper said at a press briefing, noting that previous hurricanes - Matthew in 2016, Floyd in 1999 and Fran in 1996 - brought heavy wind and rain to the entire state.

The storm is forecast to continue towards the United States, and approach the southeastern coast by Thursday.
