According to the latest weather chart which focuses on maximum wind gust, Hurricane Florence appears to hit the USA coastline on Thursday evening into Friday morning.

"It now looks increasingly possible that Florence will stay near the coast (either inland or just offshore) for a day or longer, perhaps moving southwest along the coast".

Manure lagoons are about as pleasant as they sound-vast open-air ponds of manure located next to the many hog farms near the North Carolina coast.

A hurricane warning went into effect from South Santee River in SC to Duck, North Carolina. "This is a storm that is historic, maybe once in a lifetime".

The Governor issued a state of emergency around noon on Wednesday ahead of the storm.

Tecklenburg said his flood-prone city is preparing for "copious rain" by clearing out the city's drainage system and getting boats and portable pumps ready.

First comes the storm surge - a rise in sea levels caused by storm winds.

"This one really scares me", National Hurricane Center Director Ken Graham said.

That's saying a lot, given the impacts from Hurricanes Diana, Hugo, Fran, Bonnie, Floyd, and Matthew.

Beyond the Carolinas and Virginia, which were expected to bear the brunt of the storm, rain and flooding were expected through next week in certain parts of Tennessee, Georgia, West Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland and the District of Columbia. Forecasters warn that millions could be affected by the hurricane, and have urged mass evacuations of areas within its path.

Hurricane Florence is blasting toward the Carolinas, carrying sustained winds of up to 130 miles per hour and the threat of "life-threatening storm surge and rainfall", the National Hurricane Center says. Life-threatening storm surges of up to a staggering 13 feet in some places were also forecast. Rain will continue through Sunday, dumping feet of water over a wide area.

While many people focus on the wind speed of storms, the danger often comes from the water flowing in from the ocean.

President Donald Trump declared a state of emergency in North and SC, thus facilitating federal aid to those states.

The National Hurricane Center says Hurricane Florence is expected to bring life-threatening storm surge and rainfall to portions of the Carolinas and mid-Atlantic states. Regardless of the exact path, impacts will extend well beyond the center and into southeast SC.

The storm is now expected to make landfall in the lower Outer Banks of North Carolina early Friday morning or possibly stay in the ocean before making a shift to the left toward SC.

Millions have been ordered to evacuate their homes as the storm rages closer to the mainland. Cars and trucks full of people and belongings streamed inland.

Even more troubling is the amount of rain that could fall in southeastern North Carolina due to the storm slowing down or stalling out.
