The National Hurricane Center predicts Florence will become a major hurricane, a category 3 or stronger storm, again by early next week.

Many of us are not prepared for what it would be like if a hurricane made landfall here. Note that the strands are clustered together where the forecast track is most confident, but they diverge where the course of the storm is less certain.
