These 5 reasons make Hurricane Florence extremely unsafe

Here's how large Hurricane Florence is compared to Kentucky

North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, and Georgia have declared states of emergency over the storm.

The US National Hurricane Center has warned that a life-threatening storm surge along the coast of South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia is likely.

Next week, when Florence has finally passed the Carolinas and moved into the Ohio Valley, the rain will have been the big story.

Previously classified as a Category 4 on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale of hurricane strength, Florence is so far the most severe storm to threaten the United States mainland this year and the first of its magnitude to target the Carolinas since 1989 when Hurricane Hugo barreled over Charleston, South Carolina. Rivers will continue to rise days after the rain has stopped, he said.

Florence is still a Category 2 hurricane. More than 26,000 hunkered down in shelters. The rainfall will cause prolonged significant river flooding.

In Shallotte, N.C., a coastal town near the border with SC, emergency orders forced a Waffle House to shut down - an act that was widely seen as a sign of respect for Florence's imposing size and strength.

North Carolina officials said there had been at least seven storm-related fatalities in the state, with unconfirmed reports of a further three deaths.

The Carolinas will likely bear the brunt of Florence's wrath.

Mr Orban has also expressed his desire to remain within the EPP, which he said was "deeply divided" on the issue of migration.

The White House said on Friday that President Donald Trump would travel to the region next week unless his trip would disrupt clean-up and rescue efforts.

Trump tweeted yesterday: 'We got A Pluses for our recent hurricane work in Texas and Florida, and did an unappreciated great job in Puerto Rico, even though an inaccessible island with very poor electricity and a totally incompetent Mayor of San Juan.

Florence's maximum sustained winds were clocked on Thursday at 105 miles per hour (165 kph) after it was downgraded to a Category 2 on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale, according to the NHC.

Roslyn Fleming, 56, said her granddaughter was baptized in the inlet near where she lives in the coastal community of Sea Breeze and on Thursday morning she used her iPad to make a video of the scene.

Colgate coach Dan Hunt chose to pay it forward after the team's game against Furman was canceled due to Hurricane Florence. "So will the power lines, as the trees fall down". The site lost enough material to fill around two-thirds of an Olympic-sized pool, the company said in a statement, adding that it did not believe the incident posed a risk to health or the environment. That would actually be Florence's storm surge, the Federal Emergency Management Agency said.

A buoy off the North Carolina coast recorded waves almost 30 feet (9 meters) high as Florence churned toward shore.

With their entire neighborhood evacuated in Wilmington, North Carolina, David and Janelle Garrigus planned to ride out Florence at their daughter's one-bedroom apartment in Charlotte.
