President Donald Trump issues warning as Hurricane Florence advances

Florence is now a Category 4 storm, packing 130 mile-per-hour winds, according to an 11 a.m. update from the U.S. Hurricane Center, and it may soon re-strengthen to near Category 5 levels.

At the same time Florence is expected to make its landfall, another storm, Isaac, is forecast to be at or near hurricane strength as it moves across the Lesser Antilles and into the eastern Caribbean Sea. Rescuers will not be able to reach you during the storm.

Along the Carolina coasts, marina workers are moving boats to higher ground, and are focused on protecting buildings. "Don't bet your life on riding out a monster".

Swells from the storm are already reaching Bermuda and parts of the USA coast. But getting out of harm's way could prove hard. In September 1989, Hurricane Hugo smashed its way up from the SC coast near Charleston and made a beeline for Charlotte, knocking over thousands of trees and leaving many without power for weeks.

Brief tornadoes could spin up as the storm moves inland especially near and the right of path of the storm's eye.

"The building we're going to board some windows up". It was located farther north in the Atlantic than any other storm to ever hit the Carolinas, so what we're forecasting is unprecedented.

Forecasts expect 10 to 15 inches (25-38 cm) of rain in the hardest-hit areas, possibly more if the storm stalls over land, as expected, Graham said.

The governors of South Carolina, North Carolina, Maryland and Virginia have declared emergencies.

Boarded up houses are seen ahead of Hurricane FlorenceÕs expected landfall, at Holden Beach, North Carolina, Sept. 10, 2018. "We are taking Hurricane Florence seriously".

Rain measured in feet is "looking likely", he said.

All inland residents should find out now if you live in a flood prone area.

Paula Matheson of Springfield, Oregon, has been getting the full Southern experience during her 10-week RV vacation: hot weather, good food, handsome beaches and, now, a hurricane evacuation. It took them almost the whole day Monday to drive the 60 miles off the barrier island. "Eighty-five degrees", Matheson said, pausing a moment. A "Hurricane Hunter" aircraft recorded maximum sustained winds of 130 miles per hour. Florence however, exploded from a category 1 storm over the weekend to a category 4 storm to start the week.

By way of comparison, the maximum intensity of Hurricane Maria, the storm system which path of destruction left nearly 3,000 people dead in Puerto Rico, was 277.8 km/h, (150 knots), the NHC said.

More than one million people face mandatory evacuation orders in coastal areas in Virginia, North Carolina and sc late on Wednesday night as one of the strongest hurricanes near the shores of the US East Coast.
