Hurricane Florence: 10 million at risk as first shelter declared FULL

Chuck Burton  APSand bags surround homes on North Topsail Beach N.C. Sept. 12 2018 as Hurricane Florence threatens the coast

The centre of Florence, no longer classified as a major hurricane but still posing a grave threat to life and property, is expected to strike North Carolina's southern coast tomorrow, then drift southwest along the shoreline before moving inland on Saturday, the NHC said. The four storms in the Atlantic come as another one in the Pacific is hitting Hawaii.

Florence is headed straight for some of the most well-known military bases in the country.

Almost 1000 prisoners in SC will not be moved from their cells, despite a mandatory evacuation order in the area.

"Our sand dunes are healthy but they're not going to be able to keep back a wall of water like that", he said. The losses won't be easily or quickly overcome.

About 1.7 million people have already been told to leave their homes in the latter three states, but some who thought they were safely out of the path of the storm are now desperately working to board up their homes and businesses before its arrival.

Fox News reported that sustained winds were picking up a bit along the North Carolina coast. The rain will also become heavier and more steady by the afternoon or evening.

But despite the potentially devastating hurricane, forecast to make landfall on Friday with 130mph winds, people tried to offer some "relief" in the silence before the storm.

Tropical storm-force winds extended 195 miles (315 kilometers) from Florence's center, and hurricane-force winds reached out 70 miles (110 kilometers).

Hurricane Florence Zeroes In On Carolinas, Bringing 130 MPH Winds
Additionally, there will be damaging winds that could top 100 miles per hour, isolated tornadoes, and "devastating" storm surge. The lingering storm could bring days of heavy rains, which could spark intense floods from SC to Virginia .

Florence is so wide that a life-threatening storm surge was being pushed 485 km ahead of its eye, and so wet that a swath from SC to OH and Pennsylvania could get deluged.

"Hurricane Florence is looking even bigger than anticipated". Parts of North Carolina could get 1m of rainfall. Spokesman Howard Fowler said restoration could take "weeks instead of days", even though 20,000 workers, including crews from outside the area, were standing by.

Below is a list of services being offered in Florida to evacuees, as well as information for those fleeing Florence.

Eight dogs and 18 cats from a shelter in Norfolk, Virginia, were sent to two shelters in Washington to make room for pets expected to be displaced by the hurricane.

Port of Wilmington, North Carolina, extended operating hours for trains and trucks to clear cargo containers from the complex. Evacuees also loaded up their vehicles with extra gas cans, their pets - mostly dogs, and one cockatoo - coolers filled with sandwich meat, family photographs and blankets.

Aside from safety concerns, Atlantic Coast Conference schools face scheduling obstacles, monetary implications and bowl considerations.

The White House has approved requests from North Carolina and SC for federal emergency declarations, allowing for greater coordination among states and federal agencies. Virginia has moved its Saturday home game against OH to Nashville, Tennessee.
