Fishel said that the wind field associated with the storm is continuing to increase in size and could cause devastating storm surge.

Almost 2 million residents have been told to evacuate and head to safer ground.

Florence is now expected to make a slightly earlier arrival near the border of North and SC early Friday. But because Roper cares for extremely vulnerable patients, like those who just got out of heart or brain surgery, the facility applied for and received an exemption to the evacuation order because transporting the patients could be riskier than sheltering in place. This storm is a slow-moving mammoth and will linger for days on the coast, heavily affecting not only North and SC but also Georgia and parts of Virginia before moving further inland, causing devastation to entire states throughout the weekend.

More than 1 million people have been ordered to evacuate the coastlines of the Carolinas and Virginia.

As Florence closed in for the worst strike on the area in decades, President Donald Trump and state and local officials urged residents in the path of the storm to evacuate before it is too late.

The hurricane is expected to weaken into a tropical depression as it continues westward into SC and Georgia.

Saturday's scheduled game between SC and Marshall has been canceled.

Jennifer Gray, CNN meteorologist, commented on the hurricane, saying: "Regardless, this is bad news for the North Carolina coast as well as the SC coast, and all the points inland".

A hurricane warning - meaning hurricane conditions are expected within 36 hours - is in effect for a long stretch of the coast, from the Santee River in SC to Duck, N.C., which is part of the Outer Banks.

"The preparation has been done and now it's up to mother nature as to what happens", he said.
